Kushikura Kyoto 串くら is inside a machiya (traditional style house) and has a reputation of being the best tasting yakitori in Kyoto and I hear they regularly sells out before closing. They charbroil the skewers using coal which creates that amazing mouth-watering aroma you smell as you’re inside the restaurant.
Yakitori is essentially a Japanese-style shish kabob. Minimalism at its best, bite-sized pieces of chicken and onions are pierced by skewers, flavored with sauces, salt or other mouth watering spices and grilled over a charcoal fire. A perfect match with Japanese sake and beer
