Toritama

In case you didn't know, Japanese food is not just sushi or ramen. Yakitori (skewered meat over charcoal fire) is also another popular Japanese cuisine- I would describe it kind of like Japanese pub food. 

We recently tried Toritama that's located near Lan Kwai Fong in Hong Kong. The coolest thing about this restaurant is that you can eat every single part of the chicken- yes, even its internal organs or the chicken crown (who knew you could eat that part??). 

We sat at the bar table and its a little intimidating to see all parts of the chicken right in front of me but hey, there's a first time for everything right?

We ordered quite a bit so I'll go through some of the ones that stuck out to me instead of going through each dish:

The tsukune which is the chicken meatball was really surprising, it had some soft bone bits inside which made it really chew which I quite liked. 
The misaki (hen tail) was really good, surprisingly chewy (I though the hen tail would be kind of flimsy?) and the cheesy sauce on top went well with it. 
Peta is the skin part of the chicken, I absolutely LOVED this part and no, it's not that fat! 
The crown is a must try (when else would you ever try a chicken's crown?). It has an interesting texture- soft and chewy, kind of like the skin but not fat at all. 
Hatsu which is the chicken heart- trust me, you won't even know it's the heart. 
Grilled cheese- why not?
Soy sauce ice cream- I have to say, it was interesting. I can't say it was good (or bad), but it was definitely interesting. You'll have to try it for yourself!
