After hearing about Jap's Table and it having the best yakitori in Sydney, I had to pay a visit. Located in Darlington, it's a little out of the way, but well worth it to be greeted by a bustling shopfront and a menu bursting with all the regular Japanese delights, in particular yakitori and ramen.
Hand written menu
Specials of the day
The menu is filled with lots of smaller sized dishes, which I love the idea of, as it means we can order and try more things.
Complimentary starter of chicken skin
This is an interesting way to start the meal, with a small bowl of chicken skin. Not quite the crispy variety, I'm afraid, it has more of a rubbery texture which takes some getting used to.
Wagyu beef yakitori
The wagyu beef yakitori, on the other hand, is a pleasure to eat with a wonderfully smoky flavour.
Jap's Table zensai
which is basically an entree with a bit of everything include sliced pork, egg and some vegetables
The aptly named mushroom lover is a lovely mixture of oyster, button, chinese and enoki mushrooms in a clear broth.
Half serve Yokohama ramen
The ramen broth was quite light in flavour with the noodles a tad too soft. I like how you can order half serves of the ramen dishes as I can't usually finish a whole one.
Celery and chicken thigh skewer
So tender and with a deliciously smoky flavour from the charcoal. Definitely one of the best yakitori I've had in Sydney!
