Fantastic yakitori place. Highly rated, very casual, fun and sooo delicious. And, of course, very hard to book.
The Chef kicks you off with some raw chicken, breast and liver, before starting the regular servings. All pieces are from an excellent selection of chicken, precisely cut (the chicken meat ball is exactly 40 grams so it fits perfectly onto the grill and the grilling can be timed) and expertly grilled by the Taisho himself. One ends up with delicious, succulent, juicy pieces of chicken which are to die for. They are so good that one wants more, it never gets boring. Highlights were the before mentioned chicken meatball, the karage (fried chicken), the liver pate with grilled sourdough bread from Louloutte in Osaka and the knuckles.
They have a nice selection of sake and wine which one can order by the glass to pair with the delicious food. The Taisho is very friendly and funny, he successfully creates a very casual atmosphere in chatting with the costumers which observing closely the pieces on the grill.
Trust me, try to get a reservation, it is worth the hike to Amagsaski.
