Zakkushi on Carleton
With their handmade décor inside, they try their best to show Japanese Izakaya atmosphere. Their signature dish is the charcoal grill skewers, which they have over 30 different kinds, including meats, seafood, and vegetables. By using real **Japanese charcoal**, they prepare each skewer with pride. Other than Yakitori skewers, they have a variety of menu items from a small dish appetizer to some main dishes. During the summer season, their patio is open to enjoy the sun!! (May to October)
**Japanese charcoal, particularly Binchotan, is prized for its superior quality of burning in addition to the excellent heat retention at high temperatures. Most fine quality charcoal contains 80% of carbon component, which produces minimal odour associated with the impurities and volatile components. However, in binchotan charcoal, the carbon component is 93% to 95%, meaning food grilled with it retains its own natural flavours at the most purest state. Since Binchotan charcoal is nearly pure carbon, it momentarily reaches temperatures of 1000°C yet produces no flame or odour. This flameless and therefore gentle technique of grilling is cherished by barbeque connoisseurs worldwide.

You will be delighted by the Japanese ambience, the amazing service so much at the Japanese style. The food of the highest quality, fresh and perfectly cooked. For a moment you feel you are actually in Japan. The speciality is skewers, a different type of food from other Japanese restaurants in Toronto of sushi and Ramen. The only downside is that it is pricy, expect to pay more than average, but you’ll get what you pay.
Amazing food, amazing service, and a fun and unique atmosphere. I couldn’t recommend this place more. It’s both mine and my significant other’s favourite restaurant. I would highly, highly recommend the cheese chicken, it is to die for.
