Ganso Yaki Is Serving Japanese Street Food in Downtown Brooklyn

March 18, 2015 Updated: July 18, 2015

Satisfy your Japanese street food cravings at Harris Salat and Tadashi Ono’s second restaurant, Ganso Yaki, in downtown Brooklyn.

If your taste buds are feeling extra adventurous, try the yakitori with minced chicken, quail egg, and a “10,000-year glaze;” or the Tokyo-style soy-braised pork intestines. Of course, the extensive menu also offers more basic dishes like crab croquettes, Japanese-style fried chicken, and miso-cured hanger steak. There’s also a plethora of vegetables dishes, tempura, and three different takes on soba.

The concept of Ganso Yaki takes inspiration from alleyway shops, backstreet restaurants, pushcart vendors, and under-the-train-track mom-and-pop joints of the old and rough Shitamachi neighborhood of Tokyo—where Ono grew up and discovered his love of street food.
