With its bite-sized pieces of chicken that are skewered and roasted to perfection over a hot grill, it’s no wonder that a lot of people – locals and tourists alike – love yakitori. Made conveniently over a hot grill, yakitori is a simple dish that is packed with so many flavors. Seasoned perfectly every time, either sweet or salty-sweet, yakitori is best paired with condiments such as shichimi togarashi, wasabi, and yuzukosho. You can eat yakitori as a whole meal with rice and miso soup, or have it with a serving or two of sake, or simply enjoy its delicious grandeur on its own. You can also make other variations of yakitori at home by using other ingredients such as shiitake mushrooms, shishito (small green peppers), and other tasty produce.
