Travel Blogger's Review

Jason has masters in gastronomic tourism from Le Cordon Bleu.
In the beginning of August, 2017, he took a trip to Wakayama City.
His blog is “Sake Tours”. http://www.saketours.com/

Yakitori and sake is one of my favourite combinations. Tori Q has an impressive sake list, only two from Wakayama (KID and Kuroishi) but it boasts some Japan favourites such as Kariho, Masumi, Obata, Dassai 23, Juyondai, Suigin and a few others as well. I was impressed by the yakitori here, they even let you order single sticks.

“ Best Sake Spots in Wakayama City ”

The owner, Mr. Takeshita, uses Binchotan from Tosa because it is a little cheaper than the stuff from Wakayama. The menu consists of all your standard yakitori fare plus a few extras. The glass fridge case at the counter is great for checking out what you would like grilled on a stick, expect to pay about 4000 Yen or so per person with a couple of beers and a few good sake.

No English is spoken at Tori Q and they don’t have an English menu either – but Mr. Takeshita says he often has foreign tourists in for dinner and enjoys watching the staff dancing like chickens and using body language to communicate.
