Iku Yakitori Bar

Iku Yakitori Bar is a traditional Japanese-style eatery and bar, serving authentic Japanese yakitori. Now, Yakitori basically means skewered chicken – so, the humble chook is the unique hero of the menu. The philosophy here is to use all of the (free-range) chicken so there is minimal wastage. With sustainability a driver, the menu sees everything from chicken wings, skin, hearts, tail and cartilage all delicately placed onto skewers and grilled to perfection. There are also bigger share plates like the wagyu rump cap, the kingfish collar, and the shio koji fried chicken with pepper aioli. There are more than 85 Japanese whiskies on offer (that’s the biggest collection in the region), ranging from affordable drops to $420-a-nip whiskies (treat yo’self). The cocktail list shines bright with seven different offerings, which will change every single week. Oh, and there’s sake – lots and lots of sake.
