Tori Ichi is a Japanese restaurant offering a wide variety of authentic Japanese yakitoris grilled with the use of Japanese Binchotan. It’s for people who are craving some grilled Japanese goodness.

Elait, which came from the word “lait” (milk in French) and “elate” (to fill with joy or pride), offers artisanal rolled ice cream and yogurt.
