For Enthusiasts
Very popular among enthusiasts on these genres. Not always suitable if you are not particularly interested.
Tsujiya has a really nice ambiance, and it's an excellent place to eat some yakitori! The chicken pieces are charcoal grilled making them very flavorful. They also have Chicken Sukiyaki. They choose the best chicken and vegetables to use in the restaurant, everything so tasty! I also recommend to get the salad with crispy fried potato strings on top. It goes very well with some Yakitori.
Assorted Yakitori Sticks
1Must Eat !
Assorted Yakitori Sticks / ¥900
Five of the day’s recommended sticks of yakitori are served some flavored with their original sauce and some simply with salt. Because they are charcoal grilled, the chicken pieces have crispy outside and juice inside. Flavorful yakitori sticks are also available from single sticks.
Three Sorts of Grilled Vegetables
2Must Eat !
Three Sorts of Grilled Vegetables / ¥980
Just like the assorted yakitori sticks, the types of vegetable used for this assortment depends on what is freshest on that day. Thanks to the four seasons of Japan, most vegetables are grown according to season. This time around (in early February) the grilled vegetable plate is served with a whole onion, eggplants, and Shiitake mushrooms.
3Let's Try !
Tsukune (Japanese chicken meatball) / ¥240 per stick
One of their proud items on the menu is the Tsukune. It is a common item in Yakitori restaurants, but the way Tsujiya does Tsukune is phenomenal. Could it be the use of fresh ingredients? Or is it their use of original sauce that makes it so tasty? It might just be the combination of both and the side of raw egg yolk for dipping making this Tsukune very special.
Chateau Mercian White Wine
4Let's Try !
Chateau Mercian White Wine / ¥700 per glass
Most Yakitori places are also a place to enjoy some drinks. Try this wine from a winery in Yamanashi, Japan. This delicate wine is made with an ensemble of grapes from all over Japan and goes very well with Yakitori.
How to Order & Eat
If you are in mood for Sukiyaki, you're in luck! Although Sukiyaki is typically made with beef, you must try their Chicken Sukiyaki which is made with local chicken.
- Order Tips -
First, order a drink. Usually a small appetizer called “Otoshi” or “Tsukidashi” is served with a drink which includes in a table fee. This service may not be familiar to many visitors from abroad; therefor, the restaurant may decide not to offer this service to each guest.
