    Owned by a former sumo wrestler, the restaurant not only serves as a testament to sumo tradition but also as a delightful exploration of diverse Japanese flavors. The heart and soul of Sekitori lie in its signature chanko nabe, a hearty stew crafted from dozens of different ingredients, simmered daily over an extended period. Beyond its sumptuous taste, this hot pot boasts a rich array of vegetables, providing a wholesome and nutritious option that effortlessly addresses any vegetable deficiency in one’s daily diet.

    While chanko-nabe takes the spotlight, Sekitori’s menu extends beyond by featuring a variety of Japanese cuisine staples that have garnered their own share of popularity. Get to order more as they serve about 150 dishes meaning there’s always something new whenever you go back such as karaage and sashimi.
