Served on a stick, yakitori consists of small pieces of mostly chicken skewered on a bamboo or metal skewer which are grilled over a charcoal fire. Its convenience and portability makes yakitori very popular on the streets of Japan and in Japanese pubs called izakaya. Along the busy street of Memory Lane (or Piss Alley) in Tokyo, you will find many tiny road side pubs and take-out restaurants where you can order some of the best yakitori in the country. Sit on one of their bar stools, inhale the enchanting aroma of mouth-watering yakitori and order yours with sauce or dry.
