Rating: Two thumbs up!
Servers’ recommendations: Instead of taking the server’s recommendation, we decided to go with the “omakase,” where they give you 6 skewers of their choosing.
What we ordered: Big bottle of Asahi Super Dry, chicken crackers, omakase skewers (meatball, chicken thigh, chicken with shrimp mayonnaise, beef tongue, asparagus wrap, wings), shiso, jidori chicken heart, yakisoba
Number in our party: 2
Final check amount: $40.72
- The yakitori itself is actually better at Yakitori Yakyudori, but Yokohama Yakitori Koubou has a more comfortable, cozy vibe. The service is friendlier and more laid-back (at Yakitori Yakyudori, the waitresses are frankly annoying). We felt like we were being taken care of, and we could sit back and enjoy our meal.
- It’s very hard to find good yakisoba. It’s a bit sweet, but the best we’ve found in San Diego so far. The meat and vegetables in it are well-seasoned, and the noodles are good quality. And there’s a fried egg on top!
- The menu is full of homey dishes that we want to try.
- They use fancy charcoal.
