Good Eats

Chidori-ashi 千鸟足 @ Shanghai (2021)

There are so many things one can have when dining alone, but only a few will become good eats. Yakitori is one of them.

I thought I have tried every yakitori izakayas around my office, until I chanced upon Chidori-ashi around Metro Town 玫瑰坊. I have not been there for almost two years, so I skipped my usual Niao-An and went there one night in the recent trip to Shanghai.

Afterwork crowd

The crowd just came off work from the numerous office building around Metro Town, and you have Japanese expats among them, you can be assured it must be quite good.

The owner came from Osaka, so you can be sure there okonomiyaki on the menu. And what else to wash everything down that a highball.

Braised cow’s tongue
Monk fish liver in ponzu sauce
Okinawan bitter gourd and span omelette

Everything was still as good as the 2019 visit, minus the hospitable owner-chef. He wasn’t around that evening. Also nobody was smoking outside the restaurant. But thankfully it still has it going inside those mysterious walls.
