KENGO will be a sushi and yakitori restaurant in downtown Toledo Ohio at 38 South Saint Clair St. We are currently building out the restaurant as we speak. To do real Yakitori we need a proper grill. We need your help to have a custom Yakitori grill built to provide the best product we can. Gas yakitori grills are not available to purchase in the United States and importing one from Japan is very expensive. We are lucky enough to know a local engineering company that builds ovens and furnaces that will build us a full custom (to our restaurant) yakitori grill! The money will cover the grill, the stainless steel cart it will stand on and the installation of the grill into the restaurant.

Risks and challenges

The restaurant is currently being built out right now. You can follow the process on twitter or instagram @kengotoledo. As you can imagine restaurants take time to get going, delays are inevitable.
