Can’t get to Japan, that’s ok this is the best yakitori in San Diego

Yakitori Taisho

If you can get into this small 15 seat yakitori restaurant in Clairmont be very thankful as you are in for an amazing experience that will send you to Tokyo without having to leave San Diego.

Baby Scallops

Best dish is easily hands down the baby scallop skewers. These are so sweet and unlike any scallop you’ve ever had. A must.

Pork Belly with Shiso Leaf and Plum Sauce

You can't go wrong with anything from the grill but some of the highlights of our meal were the Pork Belly with Shiso Leaf and Plum Sauce, Chicken Balls, Beef, and Shino Peppers.

Hara hachi bun me (Eat until you are eight parts full)

Beef Skewers

One of the more unique yakitori were the fresh quail eggs. These were cooked to perfection with a slightly soft and barely runny yolk. Yum.

Quail Eggs

You can’t go wrong with anything on this menu and I look forward to trying everything. It’s an amazing hole in the wall and worth the wait.

Highly Recommend this it’s a wonderful experience: 5 stars!
