Well this is darn exciting. A treasured tipster spotted a sign posted at 7420 Clairemont Mesa Boulevard, Suite 104, that indicates the owners of Yakitori Taisho, as well as Kearny Mesa's Yakitori Yakyudori & Ramen and Hinotez, will be expanding further and opening Yakitori Hino in the space.
Yakitori Taisho debuted in Fall 2014 and has become part of the regular rotation for the city's food-obsessed folks, earning a berth on Eater's 38 Essential Restaurants in San Diego. The intimate spot is known for its highly-skilled chef and menu of carefully grilled specialty skewers.
Reps at the restaurant told Eater that Yakitori Hino will be more similar to the cozy and higher-end Yakitori Taisho than their other locations. It's expected to open in late summer or fall.
