Yakitori Boy is a Japanese restaurant located in the northwest section of Philly’s Chinatown. It has a real chill, modern feel and atmosphere. They specialize in yakitori (obviously).
I started off with agedashi tofu. I blame my gf on that. Pretty much every Japanese restaurant we’ve been to, she ordered agedashi tofu. I eventually became hooked. Their agedashi tofu was alright though…
I wanted to try all different kinds of yaki but decided on the “chef’s choice” since it had 10 pieces of yaki for 20 bucks, which seemed like a good deal since the average price of yaki is about $2 – $2.50. The 10 pieces consisted of chicken meat balls, chicken & scallion, bacon, and two others (both chicken I believe). They were all good, but I wish they were 10 different pieces, not 10 total, 5 different varieties… oh well.
Lastly, I finished up the meal with mango mochi ice cream….gahhh mochi ice cream is just heaven. If you haven’t had any yet, get out there and try some!
Overall, the food was satisfying. The service was good and friendly. It’s definitely is a great place to meet up with friends. There’s also a lounge/karaoke bar upstairs, Japas, which I have yet to check out.
