There are plenty of Japanese yakitori joints in Hong Kong, but only a few real specialists worth the time of the city’s many deeply-invested foodies. BON Japanese Yakitori is one place that demands a reservation, specialising as it does in Kyushu-style barbecue at its headquarters along Tsim Sha Tsui’s Hau Fook Street, a site that boasts incredible views of the harbour. With an interior accented by black marble and mood-lighting – allowing the prospect over the water to remain in play – BON Japanese Yakitori has the appearance of a fine dining establishment, but in fact is one of the better value for money yakitori bars in the city. Book a perch up on the 22nd floor now!
Depending on your proclivities, Japanese yakitori means either drinks or grilled skewers first and foremost. Let’s presume that you’re a Hong Kong gastronome after some esoteric spirits. BON Japanese Yakitori is well-stocked with a range of traditional and contemporary tipples, with a list pushing wine and beer to one side – though these remain available in abundance – in favour of premium shochu, sake, and umeshu. The sake selection is impressive, and carefully annotated according to the prefecture of origin and grade (junmai, junmai ginjo etc.). It’s one of the most considered lists in Tsim Sha Tsui’s crowded yakitori scene, providing ample evidence that BON Japanese Yakitori is passionate about what it offers.
BON Japanese Yakitori is careful to emphasise the authentic nature of what boils down, in essence, to a Japanese celebration of barbecue and booze. Bringing a specific Kyushu influence to bear up on the 22nd floor of the H8 building along Hau Fook Street, you can grab some of the most sublime charcoal-grilled skewers in Tsim Sha Tsui, or perhaps in Hong Kong. As with the drinks list, every morsel on the menu is carefully annotated with the origin of the ingredients used. This way you can order chicken breast from Kagoshima with special citrus pepper, a special Kyushu-style minced chicken stick from Miyazaki prefecture, chicken hearts from Hyogo, or Wagyu beef sirloin from Iwate. A special note for death-defying foodies: BON Japanese Yakitori have the expertise to plate up grilled dried fugu with preserved Mirin sauce!
