Another polished Japanese yakitori spot has found a home in Shanghai, this one on the ground floor of the Jingan Kerry Centre. Unsurprisingly, grilled meats are the star attraction with all parts of the feature bird (chicken) on offer – breast, thigh and wings, alongside ovaries and throat for the daring. The cocktail list also plays a strong supporting role featuring signatures designed by bar awards magnet Speak Low – think Yakult and lychee martinis or a Paloma with yuzu and shiso tequila.
