What they say:
The fine fella behind behind The Richmond pub in Hackney and Elliot's Cafe in Borough Market is bringing a taste of the orient to Dalston's high street with the venture Jidori. Serving up a traditional spread of Japanese street food favourites, Jidori operates an open kitchen interior with a specialty Kama-Asa Shoten grill as the main feature for all of the cooking.
What we say:
Jidori is all about a taste of Tokyo. If you're a sucker for that charcoal grilled flavour of a Yakitori skewer or even are just partial to the Asian exports of Japanese cuisine, then Jidori is East London's latest international eatery. From the bar to the kitchen, everything is built with authentic Japanese tastes in mind: sake, craft beers, traditional spirits and small plate dishes.
