Yakitori Mikado Reviews

Yakitori Mikado Google Average Rating



I love the chicken heart and the chicken tenders. Ive never tried half cooked chicken tenders but it tasted just like sashimi. Really fresh and nice. I always thought I was a thigh guy, now I know I like breasts too


Yakitori is recommended for people who want to eat delicious food while on a diet.
Chicken is lower in fat and higher in protein than beef or pork, so you can enjoy it without feeling guilty!
This is an extremely popular yakitori restaurant that has been selected as one of Tabelog's 100 Famous Restaurants. My wish came true and I made my first visit! !

A yakitori restaurant located in a multi-tenant building in Shinjuku 3-chome.
There are tables and counter seats, and this time I went to the counter seat.
The food is grilled right in front of you, but the good thing about it was that the smoke was not thick and there was no smell.

The course started with a French-style vegetable terrine.
I liked the grilled Hatsumoto that came out first and it was delicious.
Also, the duck was served, which is rare at a yakitori restaurant, but the generous amount of mustard on it went well with it and it was delicious.

For the final meal, there were four options to choose from: oyakodon, egg-cooked rice, salt ramen, and soy sauce ramen, so we shared the oyakodon and salt ramen.

The portions on the skewers were just right, and by the time I finished eating, I was completely full.
