Recently I went to Kokekokko yakitori house. I always avoid hearts, liver, gizzard, and some other weird parts but I just decided to try it because you don't know if you like it or not until you try it.
I ordered their half course $16.50, which comes with 5 yakitori skewers, oto-shi, soup, and salad. I also ordered quail egg. Because they serve skewers one at a time, we were here for one hour, just to eat 5 skewers.
First, this oto-shi was served.
Then the waiter brought me salad
It's white meat, and please don't freak out when you see the chicken meat that looks like rare and not cooked enough, because that's how they cook these sasami. I liked it a lot.
My first time trying liver, I don't think I like it. But if you like liver, you'll like it.
sunagimo (chicken gizzard)
Also my first time gizzard. I think it had a tough texture.
hatsu (chicken heart)
And again, my first time heart. Actually it was tasty.
momo niku (chicken thigh)
Uzura (quail eggs) $2.50
soup - tastes like chicken stock. greasy.
