Yakitori is the preparation of skewering the meat with kushi (串), a type of skewer typically made of steel or bamboo. The skewers are grilled over a charcoal fire - and pair perfectly with a cold crisp beer, Japanese whiskey, cocktail, or sake!
Using chicken from local farms to create a charcoal- grilled skewer we focus on yakitori and chicken dishes . We offer our prided yakitori that maximizes the flavor of the chicken with our special salt, secret seasoning, and unique sauce (tare).
Izakaya literally translates to a Japanese style "drinking house" where there are a variety of small-portioned dishes with the sole purpose of creating joy and satisfaction while the guests enjoy a memorable time.
Our ramen soup base recipe is directly from Japan where they are served in over 50 of Tori Jiro's locations. We are the first restaurant to bring chicken-based ramen to New England. Our experts in Japan created this distinguished taste unique from the usual pork-based ramen. We serve the original ramen base along with a few optional toppings that are specific to our restaurant here in Watertown.
Along with our suppliers and certifed sake advisors, we have carefully curated our sake menu to pair up with japanese tapas, bringing a new and innovative dining experience to you. With our selection of over 20 sakes, we are sure you will find your favorite.
