Toridoki 鶏鬨

Chicken Yakitori bar at Hartamas. Note that there's no pork in the menu. I've noticed that there are a lot of Japanese in the shop too - it must be one of their hangout spots!

Appetisers to start off.

Konsai Salad (RM18)

Combination of grilled broccoli, pumpkin, sweet potato, carrot and lotus root topped with mayo. Cheese is grated freshly upon serving. This is a MUST order!!! First time trying this version of salad and it's bloody hell good! To be fair, that's because I love everything that's served on this plate :P

Weekly Specials - Grilled Salmon Belly (RM20)

It looks unappetising but the outer layer is super crispy and it pops when you bite it! Very perfectly done.

Chicken Liver (RM5)

Negima (RM5)

Tsukune (RM11)

Toridoki (RM8)

Sasami (Wasabi) RM5

Cheese Yaki Onigiri (RM12)

The only thing I probably did not like in Toridoki. A lot of blogs advertised this item as a "wow" item, but it did not have the "wow" factor at all. The cheese was only a very thinly sliced cheese, just like the ones you use for sandwiches. It's thin and only a very small piece (possibly 1.5cm x 1.5cm). I could barely taste the cheese at all and it makes no sense to call this a cheese onigiri...

Goya Chanpuru (RM16)

See that little bottle with yellow cap somewhere 3 oclock of this picture??? According to the waitress, that little thing is some extra spicy mustard and it burns!! True enough it was so spicy I couldn't feel a thing for a while. It was a mistake to think Japanese "chilli" are usually not spicy!

The staffs speak very minimal English - probably one out of many speaks better English. It works better by pointing at the menu rather than asking them anything at all.. Their service is tad bit slow, but bearable if you have the time.

As for their food - the overall experience was great. I never expected the food to be so satisfying because I normally love my dose of pork for Yakitori. They really did a good job with their chicken dishes. Also, it was my first time trying the Okinawan bittergourd dish and it was wonderful! I would recommend this place for Chicken Yakitori. For Yakitori with pork, Sumika would be a better option. Note that if you are a chicken lover, I personally feel Toridoki has better options.
