One Night In Little Tokyo, and yes there is Chicken involved.
I can’t quit you now!!! Brokewallet Bookshelf starring me and me (come on now). They got quite the selection of food books but I come here for samurai and philosophy books. Spotted another Jiro book, not the small little one, this new one looked really good, white cover, newly translated. Moving on…
For the record I never went to Kokekokko and this place Torigoya is not the same from what I understand. (The chef bounced to Japan).
So it’s a Chicken Yakitori place. Got the 10 piece.
There is off menu stuff. No chicken booty unfortunately for tonight. The chef could be holding back on me, maybe the next visit he will show me some chicken ass.
Chicken Boobs. Juicy.
Gizzard. Not bad, kinda chewy.
Not the biggest fan of liver, just like I am not a fan of a Muay Thai and Taekwondo double simultaneous kick to the testicles while fighting off a Grizzly Bear from The Revenant with a broken toothpick while knee deep in warthog shit, was that necessary to say all that?
The Chicken Hearts!! Get it get it. Wonderful glaze.
Neck! Also very good. Off Menu
That chicken soup is certainly better than any Grandmas chicken soup.
Blue Whale for some jazz!!! First time ever and I had a wonderful time!
LOL some of the audience looking and acting all stiff, I am guessing those fools stand like a Etruscan Statue at The Getty when “California Love” and “Nuthing But A G Thang” come on at a party. More cheesy than Korean Corn Cheese dipped in crushed Cheetos drowned in Nacho Cheese Fries from Carnitas Michoacán on North Broadway (real G’s know this).
Met this cool dude named Gary at the counter at Suehiro. Knows his stuff!
We hold similar views on Pok Pok/Andy Ricker unsuccessful attempt in LA, dude were you smoking Thai Sticks or something and didn’t realize that LA has a big Thai community for decades and we been eating Khao Soi since Z Cavaricci’s jeans and Genera Hypercolor shirts were in style? I dun walked Hollywood x Western in LA Gear Lights, Andy!
We also lamented on Jonathan Gold and how most of his reviews were pinky up bougie ass Tiffany scented shit(my words obvi!) at The Times vs his stuff at The Weekly. Gave me a sushi rec. Great chatting with you! That is one of the best parts about late night dining! Oh Yelpers/Yelp, we both concluded it is only good for the pics!
I sacrifice my usual Hayashi Rice with Egg (get it!!) to get a mediocre Oyakodon just for the Chicken theme.
Oh the Lyft driver…God Bless His Heart and thank you for getting me home safe, even though you would stop suddenly on the freeway or street when I tell you it’s okay keep going straight in your native language
