Since skewers are small bite-sized pieces of meat grilled over an open flame, they require more concentration than ever before. The chef of a yakitori restaurant is flabbergasted at the skewers on the fire without a second sight. Furthermore, the optimal flavor time and intensity of the fire vary depending on ingredients such as chicken, pork, green onions, and garlic. It really is a dish that requires expert “cooking.” This week, we'll introduce 5 of the best yakitori restaurants, the best flavors created with just time and human effort.

This is a place that is popular for skewers centered around pork in the skewer scene where yakitori is popular. You can enjoy skewers with a great flavor made by a veteran chef with 30 years of experience using bijangtan. Only fresh meat that was slaughtered and delivered at dawn on the same day is used. It is characterized by the fact that only 60 to 80% of each part of the meat is cooked to preserve the juiciness, so the outside is crispy and the inside is slightly rare.

The modern interior, with a focus on white, breaks away from the image of a yakitori restaurant and gives a fresh feel. Tezukuri salt, which has been painstakingly made for over a week, is used, and the amount of salt is finely adjusted by sprinkling salt on the skewers directly by hand on a hot charcoal grill and grilling them. The omakase course includes 5 types of grilled skewers and 1 à la carte dish. Lamb marinated in herbs wrapped in pork and grilled yangcho-yaki is popular.

It consists of counter seats and tables, and you can watch the skewers being grilled continuously from the counter seats, so you won't get bored. In summer, there are also tasteful outdoor seats where you can sit at a simple table in the window.

Due to its popularity, it operates on a 2-part system with advance reservations. The low-light space and spacious counter seats create an atmosphere where you can focus more on food. The rare-grilled chicken tenderloin and mintong baked in a barrel have an appealing texture that seems to pop out of your mouth. Omakase consists of steamed egg custard followed by yakitori course, noodles, and dessert, which is well-balanced. Please note that ordering alcohol is mandatory.
