Enjoy Hakata-style yakitori at Jomon, located on top of Murugi curry in Shibuya. It offers nine kinds of chicken skewers including thigh, neck, tsukune meatball, heart and gizzard which go for ¥150 to ¥250 a pop. If you prefer something a little more rich, go for the Spanish Iberico pork (¥250) or black beef shoulder (from ¥500). Its popular veggie meat rolls are also worth a try, especially the generous roll of lettuce wrapped in thick pork belly (¥250).
While its meat skewers are the star of this restaurant, its unique dishes are not to be missed. The Hakata green onion and beni shoga (red pickled ginger) egg omelette (¥680) and deep fried Japanese mountain yam with tartar sauce (¥580) pair well, as well as Hakata’s famed motsunabe offal hotpot (¥1,400 per person) which is available in white miso, spicy and curry flavours.
