The Club was invited to dine at the newly opened Yakitori Kitchen at Burgos Circle last Dec. 19, 2011. Given my penchant for all things Japanese, of course I was excited. Yakitori Kitchen is Ramen Bar's sister restaurant albeit they don't serve the same dishes.
Yakitori Kitchen is located along the same side as Sweet Bella Cafe which I had blogged about earlier this year. As the name suggests (yakitori actually means grilled chicken, but can refer to most skewered food), this restaurant is all about grilled and skewered food.
We started off the evening with some Momo (P100, pictured above) or skewered chicken leg meat. You get two sticks per order at Yakitori Kitchen so the above is the equivalent of four orders. I'm not fond of chicken at all but the Momo was very tender, lean, and tasty. I love the special yakitori sauce they baste the meat with -- sweet and savory but not as sweet as teriyaki. You can actually ask for extra sauce on the side to accompany your order.
Then there was Corn (P85, pictured above). The corn was amazing. Incredibly sweet Japanese corn is seasoned with Yakitori Kitchen's specially imported Himalayan pink salt and a bit of pepper for an unbelievable eating experience.
Momo Niniku (P120, pictured above) is chicken leg meat with garlic. Lovely, especially since I'm pretty addicted to garlic. The chicken is very juicy and flavorful too. We were actually served a lot more types of chicken skewers using neck meat, tail, keel bone... but I don't eat those so I didn't bother taking photos anymore.
Each table is furnished with a small red bin for putting your sticks in after you've consumed the yakitori. The bins are emptied by the servers on a regular basis. The yakitori taste real good when paired with icy cold Japanese beer like Kirin Beer. In short, yakitori are the perfect pulutan!
If you're hankering for some authentic Japanese skewers, do drop by Yakitori Kitchen at Burgos Circle.
