Shin-Sen-Gumi Yakitori review image

Shin-Sen-Gumi Yakitori

Many people know Shin Sen Gumi as the very good ramen chain where you can customize your soup down to the firmness of noodle. But fewer know that the original location is actually a tiny yakitori shop in Gardena. Open since 1992, Shin Sen Gumi Yakitori is an institution you visit to eat perfect meat skewers in a low-key space. Our favorites are the marble kobe beef, bacon-wrapped quail egg, and the chicken meatballs.
