Tsukune Ichigo, River Valley Road
There are plenty of yakitori places around these days, but these guys are different (399 River Valley Road, 6736-1340). They specialize in tsukune, or the minced chicken meat variety of skewers. And you can get your tsukune dressed in any number of ways, be it with salt, pepper, sesame seeds, cheese, scallions, garlic, sour plum, fish eggs, or even some half-boiled chicken egg drizzled on top. Granted, it was only chicken, so it wasn't so mindblowing that I would get cravings for this. But it was tender enough that it edged onto the favorable side for me.
Besides, my conscience sure feels a lot better about eating something so healthy. This was only further underscored by the way that they finish your meal here: with a little cup of humble yet refreshing chicken soup that tastes just like mom used to make it (you could practically throw a matzo ball in it if the container were just a little bigger). Sure, they have other things like salads, carbs, and some grilled items too, but I prefer to focus on their tsukune.
