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. The vol­cano sal­mon roll was miss­ing the heat, but we liked how the toasted rice bal­anced out the but­tery seared sal­mon.

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.

Open Mon-Sun noon-3pm, 6pm-mid­night. $$
