Yakitori Boy 10th Anniversary Party

Regular readers know I'm a fan of Yakitori Boy. Where else in Philly can you get your inner karaoke diva on, coupled with premium drinks, sushi, and yakitori skewers? This past Wednesday, Yakitori Boy celebrated their #EatDrinkSing mentality with a 10th Anniversary Party! 

Gregarious owner Jimmy Shen welcomed guests with traditional Lion Dancing, fire dancers, open karaoke rooms, live music, and dancers, Yakitori Boy's 2nd floor lounge was positively popping. A 10th Anniversary ice sculpture was surrounded by Effen Vodka, right by the open bar/

Reps from Suntory Whiskey, Avion Tequila, Johnnie Walker, and Jameson were on hand!

Beverage Manager Carlos Orellana organized various tasting rooms throughout the venue. Over the past few months, I've really taken to Japanese whiskies, with Suntory's offerings being an easy favorite. Harmony and Toki were being poured, as well as Hibiki 12 - smooth with great caramel notes. You've also got to have Johnnie if you're mustering up the courage for karaoke. And the boys from Avion Tequila and Jameson were also on hand to pour a nice Reposado and Caskmates, respectively.

Sushi, Dumplings, Marinated Ribeye, Sashimi, and Tuna Tartare were a few of the tastes available!

And this being Yakitori Boy, we had to indulge in tasty bites. Sushi and sashimi were beautifully presented, with plenty of passed dishes. Think pork dumplings, tuna tartare crisps, marinated ribeye, and takoyaki octopus balls, to name a few.

As usual, Jimmy & Carlos put out all the stops to celebrate a successful ten years in Philly. A stalwart contributor to the community and one of the city's top destinations for Happy Hour and karaoke, here's to another 10 years!
