Yatay is a modern izakaya in Chinatown that has the spirit of a bar. It’s a dark, broody, and minimalist space, the yakitori is exactly the kind of thing you want to wash down with a miso mojito, and the music is loud. Like, really loud. The menu is primarily made up of robata skewers, Japanese rice dishes, and light bites like crispy gyoza skin fries. Although a lot of the dishes tend to be a little one-note, the sizzling hot pork skewer with a brush of zingy yuzu mayo is definitely worth an order. The prices stack up quick and thanks to the blaring tunes it isn’t the place for any budding conversationalists, but it’ll work for a quick bite with the stragglers of your after-work drinks.
