Yakitori. G/F, Coin Organize Centre, 13 Pennington St., Causeway Bay, 2386-5218. chicken meatball was by far our favorite, with a sticky broiled soy glaze coating ground chicken seasoned with scallions and spices.

MISS For a yakitori joint, the chicken didn’t really blow us away. Out of the two options, salt or soy, go for the soy: The flavor and texture of the grilled meat—especially in the chicken breast—just isn’t enough to stand out on its own with only a sprinkling of salt to help it along.
BOTTOM LINE Chicken is cooked to varying degrees of success, but affordable dishes and plenty of variety will have us coming back for more.
