Shobosho Opens A Yakitori Bar You Gotta Try Fo’ Sho


Adelaide foodies listen up! Through a blend of smoke, steam, and fire came Shobosho—a must try restaurant located on Leigh Street. Now, they bring you an intimate eight seater setting that is Sho.

This Japanese grill restaurant specialises in yakitori, using raw, cured, pickled and fermented ingredients. Fire is the key word when describing Shobosho. Customers can choose from different cooking styles such as wood oven, hydraulic grill, rotisserie and a customized yakitori pit. What previously were booths downstairs has been renovated into an exclusive situation specifically for those who want yakitori.

The name behind this mouth-watering venue is Simon Kardachi, who has already created many of Adelaide’s best eateries, including Press* Food & Wine, Osteria Oggi, and Melt. Kardachi knows what he’s doing, so Sho will definitely not disappoint.

Even Gary Mehighan from Master Chef named Shobosho as one of his go-to restaurants when dining in the Adelaide CBD!
