TRUNK(KUSHI)

By Weekender Editor

The idea behind this classic contemporary restaurant located at TRUNK(HOTEL) was inspired by the local food culture of kushi (grilled skewers). Known as Shibuya’s soul food, grilled skewers became popular during the postwar period when food stalls were abundant in the neighborhood and this tasty street snack – typically made with chicken – was a source of comfort for those living in difficult times.

Traditional grilled skewer eateries are abound in Tokyo today, and TRUNK(KUSHI) hopes to continue offering this tasty soul food to both locals and visitors. To ensure the best quality, TRUNK(KUSHI) prepares its dishes under the guidance of chefs from the long-established restaurant Yakiniku Yuji. The restaurant pays a great deal of attention to preparation and grilling, as techniques vary depending on the ingredients served on each skewer.

Address: 5-31 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku
