Must try dishes at Toronto’s Zakkushi on Carlton

Zakkushi on Carlton is a Japanese izakaya restaurant in Toronto’s Cabbagetown area. It specializes in Japanese bar food kushiyaki (skewered meat). It opened in late December 2012 and is part of a Vancouver based chain. The restaurant has a traditional Japanese design and decor. Unlike other izakayas (Guu), each party gets their own spacious table (no shared tables). Diners sit on hollow stools which provides a compartment to stow away your jackets and belongings while they eat.
