TokiQ Yakitori: Rotating Barbecue & More

2334 Views 0 Comment

Confession: I love anything grilled — be it chicken, beef or pork; that is why when Zodio Philippines invited me to try out a resto that specializes in yakitori street food, I was excited. 🙂

Located along Wilson Ave. in San Juan, Manila, TokiQ is a tiny resto that serves yakitori-style BBQ sticks cooked on a rotating grill. For those who are not familiar, yakitori is a skewered grilled chicken that is common in the streets of Japan. All parts of the chicken can be used for yakitori, but the most commonly used is thigh.

I ordered the 6pc chicken (2pcs per stick) and totally enjoyed it. The chicken are served in just the right portion so it was really tender and juicy. Very far from the usual chicken inasal that I find matabang.

Pork balls (P29) and pork belly (P30) are a must-try too!
The corn cob (P48) is a bit too spicy for my taste so I am not a fan, but my co-blogger who loves spicy food seemed to enjoy it.
My ultimate favorite would have to be their milk tea and kara-age (P75)! I loved both so much that I gobbled everything up. I could easily finish three servings of kara-age — it’s really yummy! Don’t leave the place without trying it, truly worth it. 🙂
Prices are very affordable and is perfect for students in nearby schools (La Salle Greenhills) or for people on the go who want to get a quick meal. If you live in San Juan or if you frequent the area, don’t forget to take a quick stop at this BBQ haven. I hope they open a branch in the south soon so I can have easy access to yakitori goodness!

 

To my friends: It is because of good food like this that’s why I am getting bigger and bigger each day, hahaha! But I don’t care, food makes me happy.

BON APETIT!!!

    …it's in Korean. But it comes in those tall distinct blue bottles. The tea itself looks like chocolate milk.

    You know, that Schlurp stuff sells at 711 sometimes for 60 bucks. I love that they have Earl Grey with very little sugar.
