Tori Kado – 鳥かど

Must Order

The menu is only OMAKASE tasting course which the sequence of foods are up to chef. The food would be continue to serve until when you say “STOP”. So as soon as you got full, let staff to know it. The cost also would be based on how much you have eaten.

After you ask them to STOP the course, you will be asked that which noodle or chicken egg rice ball would you want to choose last.


One of the signature stick is called “Cho-chin – ちょうちん” , the orange ball is in chicken’s ovary and would become an egg when the time has come.
This orange ball and oviduct would be served at the same time.
This part of organ is hard to secure and cook it. So this can be the evidence that this restaurant has good chicken logistics and skill of Yakitori.
Of course this is no only the evidence, but also the taste is great with more strong taste than normal egg. You may ask chef to serve this earlier if you has small stomach.

Followings are the contents of OMAKASE course.
