  • Tori Ichi Yakitori & Bar in BGC: Offering a Delicious Array of Japanese Skewers
  • Tori Ichi, which is short for “Yakitori Ichiban”, is a restaurant that originated in Kyoto, Japan. Located at Net Quad in Taguig, this food spot prepares authentic yakitori that both Japanese and non-Japanese customers surely love. Yakitori is a Japanese type of grilled chicken, but its preparation is basically any meat skewered in either bamboo sticks or steel.

    This restaurant opened in December 2015. Though not the first to offer yakitori in the Philippines, Tori Ichi is ready to compete in the industry with their one-of-a-kind selection of yakitori, yakisoba and katsudon.

    Tori Ichi has a Japanese chef who ensures that the food served is in high quality standard. When it comes to cooking and preparing for food, they use the best charcoals for grilling.

    Here are some of the yakitori specials they offer: Kawa or chicken skin skewers; Mochi Bacon or bacon-wrapped Japanese rice cake skewers; and Hasami or chicken and scallion skewers.

    To wash it all down, they included a few special drinks that complement their dishes. Serving Japanese beer and plum wine, they now encourage everyone to spend the night cap with them. Using fresh vegetables, meats, and various ingredients that are imported from Japan, it’s like Japan was brought to you in every plate that they serve.

    They also offer desserts, such as Matcha Ice Cream with red beans on the side, and Satsumaimo, sweet potatoes with ice cream and honey.

    Bringing the taste of Japan to the metro, Tori Ichi will make you want to go back to get some more.
