Hello Shin-Sen Gumi Yakitori!

The Shin-Sen Gumi family has it done it again! Once again, I am so impressed with another one of their restaurants! After trying out (and becoming such a fan) of Shin-sen-gumi Shabu Shabu and Hakata Ramen Shinsengumi, I tried out a third Shin-Sen Gumi restaurant via Shin-Sen Gumi Yakitori!

Now I love bbq/skewered food and so when I heard Shin-Sen Gumi had a Yakitori restaurant I had to check it out.

I was happy to see they not only had yakitori here but other special dishes like curry as well.

They start off the meals here with choice of two starters, a miso soup or salad.

The miso soup is served fresh and has a nice warm broth filled with lots of green onions.

The salad consists of refreshing greens with a yuzu citrus dressing.

For those who want to try a nice mix of their yakitori. I would definitely recommend the Shin-Sen Gumi combo plate from the Yakitori lunch menu. This comes with 2 skewers of bbq chicken, fried chicken and fish. The yakitori choices are 1 meatball and 1 thigh or all meatballs. I really enjoyed the yakitori! The main meat itself was moist, juicy, tender and full of flavor! The fried chicken was equal in deliciousness! It had nice crisp batter and was not salty.

As I mentioned earlier, this place is not all about yakitori because they offer special dishes as well. The day I went they had a baked curry rice dish that I just had to try. What sold me on this dish was the baked curry rice had eggplant, baked soboro and cheese with poached egg. Being a fan of curry, eggplant and egg, this dish was a must try! I was not disappointed at all. The entree came out piping hot with a flavorful curry rice that had egg and cheese oozing out. The eggplant was spread throughout and brought even more texture to the already amazing dish. It’s like a Japanese casserole!

Overall I really enjoyed my meal at Shin-Sen Gumi Yakitori. I want to say this restaurant is my favorite out of all the Shin-Sen Gumi places but the other Shin-Sen Gumis are great as well, that it is hard for me to choose a favorite. They all make me smile. 😉
