Understanding of Yakitori
I think that "grilled chicken" is eaten all over the world including the United States, Europe and Asian countries, but in Japan there is a specialty store called "Yakitori shop". Only cooks who acquired a special sense grill chicken with special tools while fighting against smoke.
Fashionable yakitori shops have also appeared in the downtown area, but basically there are not many neat yakitori shops. Places with somewhat older appearance actually seem to be good.
You can order yakitori one by one after choosing what you want to eat from the menu. The menu names are basically made up of chicken parts, some of which are unfamiliar to you or you might not have eaten before. Many places are prepared not only for chicken but also for vegetables such as asparagus.
When you choose either salt or sauce as the seasoning, they will put them and grill. It is up to you to choose either salt or sauce, but one way is to leave it to the cook because some go well with salt and others with sauce, depending on which part you have.
For reference, the basic names of the Yakitori are a thigh, a breast, a skin, a chicken and green onions, a tail, and so on. If you do not understand any names of these yakitori at all, you can first order an assorted dish called "Moriawase" and order additional items you thought were delicious.
Not only the taste but also the atmosphere of the Yakitori shop is worth experiencing as one of the tastes of Japan. It is often in a semi-outdoor location, where many people have a good time in the evening in a good weather.
