Bite-Size Review: Chikayaki - Causeway Bay

It's always a joy to find a good robatayaki restaurant...anywhere.  This one is called Chikayaki (which I confess I'd a bit of trouble remembering....Chikuyaki? Chikiyaku?)  Highly recommended by an amateur gourmand (whose taste I trust) and sometime dinner friend.

The chicken wings were great - grilling was just right, the sashimi was fresh, and best of all, they served my current favourite dish of salmon flakes on rice in hot soup.  Service was downright awful, by the way - the servers were totally indifferent...orders had to be reminded and came late anyway - but it was more amusing than annoying (THAT's how good the food was.)

Comparisons are going to be inevitable so I gotta say the Chikayaki dishes are way better than Yardbird's; the place is also quieter so conversations are not peppered with hollers of "what's that, you say?" and "sorry, can you repeat that?"

Going back for the noodles next week. And the sushi.  And God yes, the chicken wings.

Chikayaki - 7/F, Bartlock Centre, 3 Yiu Wa Street, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong.  +852 2156 0503
