Grilled meat on a stick over an open fire pit and lots of free-flowing sake: this is how one dines at Kokekko, a longtime fixture in Little Tokyo and go-to spot for Angelinos craving authentic Japanese yakitori. Named for the sound a rooster makes when crowing, Kokekokko has an exposed grill pit in which old-school Chef Tomo-San transforms fresh chicken breasts, hearts and gizzards nightly into steaming succulent skewers. If chicken is not your bird of choice, duck is also available. Add a flavor punch with one of the two condiments—karashi (Japanese mustard) or a ginger and green onion dip—and the provided spices. 

Insider Tip:

A secret VIP menu exists that only members of this exclusive club—regulars and lucky favorites of the chef—may order from.
