Love the authentic yakitori cuisine at Yakitori Taisho but hate the authentic elbow-to-elbow counter seating? Then walk down a couple storefronts to the restaurant's slightly bigger sibling, which features a similar menu of grilled chicken skewers (in gizzard, skin and meatball varieties, among others) as well as an array of Japanese comfort food classics, all represented by pictures on the menu for novices new to Japanese cuisine. Rice balls, breaded pork cutlets covered in curry, bowls of tonkotsu ramen; everything here is pretty much guaranteed to fill you up. Cheap pitchers of Kirin and a good sake selection should help wash it all down. Although the restaurant has more space than Yakitori Taisho, it¹s not exactly huge; grab a stool at the small bar or nab one of the spare wooden tables. It can be hectic with a young crowd on weekends, so stop in early in the week for a more relaxing experience.—Keith Wagstaff
