Yakitori Restaurant
$$
“Authentic yakitori has come to East London in the form of Jidori, which boasts a custom-made Kama-Asa grill imported from Tokyo. As the restaurant is named after a special breed of chicken, it’s no surprise that the meat is the star here, with virtually every part of the animal appearing in the yakitori. Don’t fill up on the skewers, though; the katsu curry scotch egg is a great Japanese twist on the English classic, and the sole dessert – ginger ice cream, miso caramel, sweet potato crisps and black sesame praline – is a moreish blend of sweet and savoury.”
