Nanban-Kan@Sawtelle ★★★

Best Yakitori in Town. Best paired with beer. The winner of the night is definitely Potato - cooked to surprisingly crispy perfection and served with sour cream and spring onions. Quality is great but not as consistent as Shin-Sen-Gumi. Sometimes it’s not grilled long enough and sometimes it could get a bit too burnt, like our Black Cod. Keep in mind that most skewers came in 2, so it could get you full quickly. Better to split in 2-3 orders to pace out the serving time. Super friendly service (but also slow due to staff shortage). It is impossible to book because they almost never pick up the phone due to staff shortage. Best to call around 4:30pm. I also showed up in person to book. That worked too. They will also seat you if they have table available when you arrive early. Best seating is at the bar. Wine corkage is $15. Sake corkage $30.
