Torihei

EatLA-1472

WHY A near-perfect pairing of yakitori and oden.

WHAT Torihei splits its kitchen equally between yakitori and oden, a relatively rare but harmonious coupling. The yakitori is made from tender, flavorful Jidori chicken.Oden is the more unusual of the specialties, a homey dish that’s typically prepared as a one-pot stew. Here, however, items are parceled out and presented a la carte. The fresh fish cake is essential, a pillowy triangle that’s even airier than a marshmallow. But the ultimate oden item is the soft-boiled egg set afloat in a shallow pool of dashi and topped with little piles of brilliant orange cod roe. Like so many of Torihei’s dishes, it’s an ode to simple, precise flavor.
