Japanese #26. Jidori, Kingsland High St

Restaurant: Jidori, Kingsland High St
Time: Saturday evening
With: Wist
Stand-out dish: Tebasaki yakitori
This may be one of the best of the year. The atmosphere was buzzy and low-key, perfect for a casual Saturday evening bite. The staff were friendly and fantastically attentive. The cocktail menu was varied and interesting – I can recommend the ‘She So Into You’ (vodka, yuzu, matcha, shiso leaves and soda). And the food was outstanding. We opted for the Omakase, but swapped out the Tsukune for Eringi mushrooms. Everything was flavourful, from the onsen egg through to the homemade pickles. Fabulous. The photos don’t do it justice.
