25-36939

In order to eat yakitori in the most delicious way possible, you should start with the lightly seasoned varieties first. For example, start with sasami (chicken tenderloin), a refreshing cut of meat, then move on to the heart, otafuku and other dishes, slowly increasing the depth of flavor at a time. There are no rules, however–you can also just eat whichever types you like, in whatever order you like.

 

2. Bite into the Meat on the Skewer

It is said that the most delicious way to eat yakitori is to eat it while it is on the skewer. The workers toil endlessly away every day to put just the right amount of meat and seasoning on each and every skewer, and it is believed by many that this effort makes the yakitori itself taste even better, hence eating it on the skewer is best.

There is a container placed on every table where you can put your used skewers after eating the yakitori. If you aren’t sure which is the skewer container, ask the staff to point it out to you.

 

Manners When Eating Yakitori

There are also other seasonings available for your yakitori; cayenne pepper, shichimi togarashi (seven spices blend), sansho (powdered Japanese pepper), wasabi, black pepper and other condiments are usually on the table already.
