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.
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.
