One of the most well hidden restaurants in Shinjuku Kabukicho where it serves exceptional fresh grilled chicken.  In fact, we were stunned how such a small restaurant with few counter seats in a hidden street could serve such higher standard yakitoris that wows customers with every bite. In this restaurant, you must order their delicious juicy white liver (shiro rebar), half raw chicken breast with wasabi (mune wasabi), and tsukune (chicken meatloaf) that makes you completely speechless without compliment.  The owner of this restaurant is a young fellow who surely has a high technique to skewer the meat.  The quality of the chicken meat on the other hand probably is one of the best around this town which is why people continuously come and go even after straying around a while to get here.  Torimitsu is a small yakitori shop located at an extremely narrow street just around the corner of Toho Cinemas that may be hard to find without a direction guide, but it is absolutely a hidden gem.
