Bincho Yakitori Brighton
Bincho Yakitori is a tiny restaurant in Brighton that has been recognised for its authentic and cool atmosphere.
It’s located on “restaurant street” aka Preston Street, which makes it the perfect place to go if you’re looking for an experience different from your average meal out. It’s small, but it has a super cool vibe with second-hand furniture and industrial lighting that makes you feel like eating at an authentic Japanese place!
It is one of the best restaurants in Brighton.
This restaurant has a really interesting background. It is modelled on a Japanese Izakaya, which means it’s got food and drinks.
It started in London at OXO Tower before moving to Soho – then finally settling down here!
Bincho Yakitori Menu
The menu at Bincho is really exciting, and it’s mostly small plates that are meant to be shared with your friends.
You’ll get a chance to try some Japanese snacks like edamame or seaweed salads as well as dishes made with yakitori (grilled chicken) on the grill.
There will also be specials scribbled up onto the blackboard; these change every day!
One of my favourite parts about the restaurant was all the meat.
The pork belly yakitori was probably my favourite because they tasted so good and it’s one of those fatty cuts that people don’t usually eat outside restaurants, but yet you can easily go crazy on them here!
I also really like their crispy Japanese fried chicken as well as their sweet Korean wings – both got a second order for me.
And although there are plenty more dishes to try with other proteins, be sure not to miss out on any vegetable dish at this place either.
Their soft potatoes had miso butter brushed overtop which made them taste even better than usual while its seaweed salad is indeed delicious.
You can’t have a good dinner without the right drinks and Bincho’s got it figured out.
There are craft beers like Hitachino Nest White Ale, which is infused with coriander, nutmeg, orange peel and orange juice – or you could go for some standard Japanese favourites such as Asahi beer!
Drinks are for the more adventurous. There is a variety of sakes, plum wine, and picked wines from both reds to whites.
If you want something sweeter there’s also Prosecco or champers as well Japanese whiskies with shochu! To balance it out try hojicha tea which has a palate that smoky yet nutty flavour on your tongue.
I’m always looking for new places to enjoy great food, and I found a gem in this restaurant! The ambience is nice and laid-back – the perfect place when you want something different.
