The Most Popular Cuisine in Japan!!
“Yaki” means Grilled and “Tori” means Bird(Chichen), those together “Yakitori” is a Japanese style Grilled chicken skewers.
Yakitori is very popular among Japanese people of all age group. Not only because it’s so tasty but also it is inexpensive casual dining style.
Yakitori, the Grilled chicken may appear to be simple but in fact its deep, the quality and freshness of the meat, how its grilled(By gas or coral), the skills of the chef, the taste of the sauce(tare), and atmosphere of the restaurant.
I recommend you to go to the typical specialized Yakitori restaurant called Yakitori-ya to experience our food culture. However, it may be challenging for foreigners to enter and make orders because they are commonly sold by the stick or a set of two sticks. You need to know the name of the parts of meat you want to eat and how you want it to be seasoned, salted or Yakitori source(Teriyaki taste). It is best to order them in small batches rather than in a single large order to eat while fresh off the grill.
For families especially with kids, I recommend you to visit a Yakitori Restaurant that offers set meals comes with a bowl of rice, multiple types of Yakitori and miso soup.
I like the Yakitori restaurant called Masakiya because the restaurants are spacier, kids friendly, and they have much variety of chicken dishes other than Yakitori. There have 14 restaurants all around Kansai Area(Osaka, Kyoto, Kyobe, Nagoya, Okayama). They even have Take out Bentos!!
Yakitori is meant to be eaten with your hands, it is not a bad manner to eat directly off the skewer but you can use your chopsticks to remove the meat from the skewer before consuming it if you prefer. A small cup may be provided on the table to discard used skewers into.
