What Is Yakitori?
Yakitori is every edible part of the chicken that is cut into bite size pieces, then skewered with bamboo sticks and charboiled with radiant heat from charcoaled wood . Besides chicken, you will also see on our menu that we serve skewered beef, pork, various vegetables and seafood which we also refer to as yakitori. Our yakitori comes with a choice of salt or teriyaki sauce flavor and are cooked using high-grade charcoaled wood to enhance the flavor. Yakitori with ponzu (citrus seasoned vinegar) and yuzu kosho along side chopped cabbage lightly sprinkled with ponzu , is the real Hakata style yakitori .
Why Does Food Taste Good, When It's Cooked With Charcoaled Wood?
When you cook with the heat too high you burn the outside while the inside remains uncooked. When you cook with the heat too low, the food keeps it's raw odor. When you use a charcoaled wood, the intensity of the heat can easily be controlled with the use of a hand fan, and cooking the food can be kept at a constant temperature giving the food a delicious taste while avoiding the raw odor. The ash on the burning charcoaled wood radiates infrared rays that are used for cooking. The infrared rays cook through the food, cooking the inside and outside evenly, thus sealing in the flavor.
