New York City night owls, prepare to meet your next favorite drunken food spot. Think cheap Japanese tapas… the menu is huge, featuring a wide variety of foods like yakitori (Japanese bbq on a stick), grilled fish, fried udon, ramen, fried rice, soup, and even mochi ice cream. AND it is open until 4am on Fridays and Saturdays. The food is not ridiculously mind-blowing but it is pretty good… and it becomes ridiculously mind-blowing when you’re intoxicated, of course. I actually recently went just for dinner and so was finally able to take pictures. Pictured above is the Yaki Udon, which is fried udon noodle with pork, squid and vegetables ($6.50). The noodles are thick and chewy. Pork was fatty and flavorful.
Here is the Yakitori BBQ Chicken ($4.00). It is nothing compared to Yakitori Totto, but certainly serves its purpose. Meat was not super tender nor tough. Sauce was a typical terriyaki kind of sauce. I didn’t like it too much, but my friend M.B. wiped the plate clean.
