Privy 5 Overview

Share |

Yakitori Taisho may be famous or perhaps infamous for their mysterious “chicken chunk" and for waiting time. But patrons are flocking here for their own peculiar brand of Japanese soul food. The spectacle of sizzling chicken-gizzard skewers, fireballs and flaming fire-brands blasting by boisterous grill masters makes anything you order worth the wait for the sake of the floor-show. It is subterranean, smoke stained and patronized by the really cool Japanese kids for its original Yakatori. It is well-known in NYC for being insanely friendly and serves kimchi nabe, yaki soba and virtually anything you could dream of, sizzling hot and grilled on a skewer. Yakitori Taisho is authentic Japanese, so bring an appetite as well as a sense of adventure.
