A Century-Old Tokyo Yakitori Restaurant Reborn in San Francisco’s Japantown. 
An iconic culinary treasure hailing from Tokyo's vibrant food scene is set to rekindle its legacy in San Francisco’s Japantown. Edomasa, renowned for its meticulously grilled skewered chicken known as yakitori, is making a triumphant return after nearly a century. Established in 1924 in Tokyo, this esteemed eatery became synonymous with artful preparation and grilling of chicken over charcoal fires. Despite closing its doors in 2022, Edomasa's legacy is finding new life in California.

Bringing this revival to fruition is EK Food Services, a Bay Area-based Japanese American food company. Director Yuki Sakakibara shared their mission to recreate Edomasa's essence and flavors in a fresh locale. The restaurant will proudly feature a century-old counter from the original Tokyo stall, serving as a historical link and an ode to Edomasa's enduring charm.

Anticipation is high as the new Edomasa prepares for its late September opening. EK Food Services, experienced in managing popular Bay Area restaurants, aims to honor Edomasa's legacy while creating a cherished local establishment. The heart of Edomasa's experience lies in yakitori, where chicken is skewered and expertly grilled over charcoal, boasting a nuanced salty or salty-sweet flavor profile. The forthcoming San Francisco branch aims to capture this culinary artistry while accommodating local tastes.

Edomasa's relocation to San Francisco seeks to forge a beloved community restaurant, blending its rich heritage with the city's diverse culinary tapestry. Addressing concerns that led to its Tokyo closure, Sakakibara clarified that the San Francisco menu will omit the controversial raw chicken dish. Edomasa's return stands as a testament to the enduring charm of a century-old dining tradition, promising a harmonious union of culinary legacies and cultural exchange.
