Isehiro (Kyobashi: Yakitori)
Isehiro
Open 11:30am-2, 4:30-9pm. Closed Sundays.

The seating arrangements here may be a bit tight, and the prices higher than average, but the grilled chicken here is outstanding. And unlike most yakitoriya in town, Isehiro serves full sets of freshly grilled skewers at lunchtime rather than just rice-based dishes.

Starting with premium heirloom chickens, the chefs grill every cut to perfection - gizzards and sasami are tender and moist, with a bit of wasabi kick to the sasami, while the tsukune is juicy and pleasantly crunchy in texture. The lunch set comes with a nice chicken skin broth to start things off, and first-rate pickles to accompany your rice.

Lunchtime menus are priced Y1550-3850; budget around Y8000 at dinnertime.
