Although I used to work in the Sawtelle area, I haven’t been able to try most of the new restaurants that have opened up recently (especially during or after Covid).
One Sawtelle restaurant that I recently got to try is called Tenkatori; apparently it is a chain, but this was the first time I had tried it. Tenkatori has a bunch of different types of fried chicken, but my favorites were the karaage and popcorn chicken (which just happen to be their top 2 sellers).
I was able to eat part of the karaage while I was at the restaurant, and then I took the rest of it home to eat as takeout. While it is still good as takeout, there is a significant difference being able to eat it fresh out of the fryer. The chicken is just more moist and the breading more crunchy, and I would highly recommend eating there if you have the chance.
Tenkatori is a great place to go if you are craving some fried chicken, and prices are quite reasonable as well (about $1/piece for the karaage).
Tenkatori Recommendation Rating: 4
1: Something worth checking out if you have time
2: Something that is a hit for some people, but not a must for everyone
3: Something worth prioritizing if interested
4: Something worth making time to check out
5: An absolute home run, worth going out of your way for
This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
