Gokumi@Santa Ana ★★★

Fantastic First Yakitori Omakase w/ Sake Pairing Pop-Up Event. Over 20 courses with super generous portion that included various appetizers, yakitori course, A5 Miyazaki beef, fried dishes, ramen, and even dessert. Vegetables would be nice to balance the meat. Guest count was limited to 14 people and was very well under control. Ryo-san is an amazing Yakitori Chef. Sake presented by Fifth Taste. $150 per person includes sake pairing. Great deal. Our go-to Yakitori place after visiting Disneyland. Cold UCC Green tea $3.50. Free limited parking in lot.

Shin-Sen-Gumi Yakitori@Gardena ★★

My Go-To Restaurant for Yakitori. Authentic Food and Reasonable Price. Tried their Agedashi Eggplant and loved it. Yakitori quality could be a bit inconsistent, depending on the Yakitori Chef on duty. Don't forget to ask for their cabbage – $1 during lunch and free w/ unlimited refill during dinner. Best to pair the Yakitori with Draft Beer to balance out the heat and dryness. $3 reward for every $50 spent plus $5 birthday reward if you join their loyalty program. Walk in only. Arrive early to write down your name on the list. No wait around 3-5pm on a Saturday or 3pm on a Sunday. Best seating is at the bar, where the food comes out right fresh from the grill to your plate. Hot Tea $1. Free parking in lot.
