Yakitori Boy is Philadelphia's premier Izakaya. An Izakaya is a Japanese version of a pub serving a variety of small dishes for snacking while drinking. We specialize in Yakitori skewers of meat, seafood, and vegetables, seasoned and skillfully grilled to perfection. We also offer 'half sushi rolls.' We believe food is better shared; naturally, our menu is tapas style... which we affectionately refer to as Japanese Tapas or "Japas." We encourage you to order a variety of dishes so that you and all of your guests can sample, enjoy, and satisfy all your taste buds!
