Had to pick up the (not so) Old Lady at LAX at 5:45 yesterday (Sunday) and was really in the mood for either Torihei or Shin Sen Gumi Yakitori.
I was really surprised that I could get into neither -
Torihei had nothing for a few hours (I tried to reserve by phone when they opened at 5:30) and the wait list at SSG was more than an hour (at 6 f*ing PM).
Are there any other good yakitori options?
If not, some budding entrepreneur ought to be opening yakitori joints in the South Bay - big time demand!
We ended up at Sanuki No Sato which was fine but not extraordinary in any way…good Udon.
