Yakitoriya is a restaurant that involves a bit of patience. The first few times you go, you’ll be offered not much more than slices of chicken breasts or thighs on skewers grilled over hot coals. But come here often enough (or bring someone who’s already a regular) and things like chicken gizzards, hearts, and skin will suddenly appear. If you’re an adventurous eater, that patience will eventually be rewarded.
