14 course



"I'm cooking up a 14 course omakase pop-up dinner at Kensho Ryokan, an upcoming Japanese inn inspired hotel and restaurant in Downtown LA Arts District. During the 2.5 hour intimate 10 person dinner, you will experience a variety of Yakitori grilled chicken skewers along with vegetable, seafood, and meat dishes. Each Yakitori is made using whole organic chicken broken down and skewered freshly the day of the dinner. The skewers are meticulously grilled over imported Binchotan charcoal. I will explain each dish as they are served to provide an informational Yakitori full bird experience. Sake to pair with Yakitori by Kanpai Kerry of world sake imports is available. Dinner concludes with a Yakionigiri chicken soup shime and dessert by Gemma Matsuyama Yamada. I'm looking forward to seeing the LA Yakigang there! - Yakitoriguy
