LA Weekly's Description

The ritual at Little Tokyo's Kokekokko is grilled chicken till you die: loosely packed chicken meatballs, faintly scented with herbs; grilled skin, threaded onto the skewer in accordion pleats; marinated slivers of thigh, separated from each other by slices of onion. Grilled hearts, served with a smear of hot Chinese mustard, are a little tough, but intensely chicken-flavored. Wisps of breast stretched around okra and Japanese chile provide just a smidgen of residual sliminess that works to intensify the texture of the meat. Dinner for two, food only, $30-$50.

Tips from foursquare

    Yakitori grilled over traditional white charcoal (flown in from Japan) -- chicken livers, heart, thigh, skin and, if you go early, ask about the off-the-menu stuff like the sublime “chicken butt.”

    5 skewer minimum. Check to make sure your favorites aren't sold out!

  • JSpace on 08/15/11

    Order a large Sobboro rice and you can get the ramen!

    Neck. That's all you need to know.
