Yakitori - Tori Shin or Totto?

chefhound Sep 8, 2011 01:18 PM

I've been to Tori Shin a few times and thought it was great. Haven't tried Totto before. I'll be in NY in November. Should I go back to Tori Shin or try Totto?

    If you are looking for real darn good yakitori, go to Tori Shin. It is more expensive than Totto, but the quality difference is far greater than the price gap. Tori Shin not only uses better ingredients, but also its yakitori cooking technique seems superior.

    Totto's strength is relatively reasonable price and good donburi/ shokuji (meal). Their ikura-don (salmon roe rice bowl) is pretty good.

      The ingredient quality is clearly better at Tori Shin, but Yakitori Totto is still worth trying.

          Try Totto, it's pretty good, and fun.
