Toridokoro Raku

We all love Raku but Chef Endo opened up another robata grill last year, Toridokoro Raku, at the height of the pandemic that’s focused on chicken about a mile down Raku on W Flamingo Rd.

And yes…this restaurant uses 100% organic chicken that’s raised until six months old from LA so I drove to Las Vegas to eat LA chicken.

With the exception of a few items that I didn’t care for like the appetizer set, foie with duck, wings, juicy chicken, and beyond onion…everything was cooked well. But I do prefer the OG Raku more for its variety of items offered on the menu and their nightly specials like sashimi that this restaurant lacks. With that said, I thoroughly enjoyed the range of flavor and texture coaxed from chicken tonight.

Highlights :heart: :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: :heart::

  • Anything that’s chicken off of the robata grill menu except for wings
  • mango pudding
  • popcorn chicken cartilage
  • grilled mochi

juicy chicken - these breasts can be more juicy for sure but nice nutty flavor with a bit of mala spice

chicken wing - a bit dry and rubbery

foie gras and duck - duck is chewy and also a bit dry…the buttery foie couldn’t save it

beyond onion - sweet, salty, and soft but still got a bit of meatiness to it…it’s onion that’s baked for 14 hours in the oven and finished on the grill. it’s interest but i’m not crazy about it.

“mango pudding” - it’s actually a multilayered dessert with sweet mango jelly atop a creamy layer of panna cotta and mango mousse at the bottom


Great photos. The chicken oysters look :yum:
