As a reminder, all donations will be given to The Active 20-30 Club of NYC Group #1044 and the last day to donate is January 3rd.

Taste Why Yakitori Totto Is One of NYC’s Most Popular Japanese Restaurants

December 17, 2014 12:02 pm

As one of New York’s most popular spots for casual Japanese cuisine, Yakitori Totto regularly has waits of one to two hours. Loyal diners come back time and again to enjoy a wide selection of small plates and Yakitori, or skewered and grilled dishes. They line up before the restaurant opens its doors for dinner to take advantage of the best selection of cuts. Most skewers feature chicken, but there are a handful of other meat selections, including the popular Harami skirt steak.

Not everything comes on a stick, however, and there are plenty of plated favorites including the agedashi tofu appetizer and the steamed rice dumplings with chicken meatballs. If you enjoy miso soup, Yakitori Totto’s is flavorful without hiding behind salt. Small plates make it ideal for sharing, but the space gets quite loud, so bring a friend rather than a date. There is a $20 per person minimum order, but that’s easy to accomplish: Although the food is common among working class Japanese, it still has the New York price tag.
