Most people know Shin Sen Gumi for their ramen but now in my opinion there’s better ramen out there like Santouka or Yamadaya. But SSG’s yakitori game is on point. If you’re not familiar with yakitori it’s a Japanese term used for grilled skewers. Even though it actually means “grilled bird”, yakitori consists of everything from chicken, beef, seafood and vegetables. For the whole month of March at SSG Yakitori (Gardena, CA) every Wednesday the skewers are $1.50 each which is a steal. So if you’re a fan of yakitori or just want a great dining experience with the most hospitable staff make sure you head down here for some good eats.
What I like most about yakitori spots like this is their use of offal meat, it always interests me to try different things. Highlights of the night were the potato croquettes, chicken thighs w/ green onion, chicken skin, chicken meatballs, pork intestines, pork belly wrapped mushrooms and kobe beef skewers. The only fail was the chicken cartilage skewers.
See you next Wednesday!
