Yakitori restaurant in Yokohama
Yesterday we ate out at our favorite yakitori (grilled chicken) restaurant.
We like sitting at the counter to see the chef's cooking.
At first, we ordered drink. I usually drink beers, and my boyfriend likes sweet drink. Today he ordered fresh orange and litchee taste cocktail with soda. So sometimes, the waiter brings me the sweet one and beer to my boyfriend. (* v *)
And the small dish is antipasto. When you go to the izakaya(pub? bar?) style restaurant in Japan, they usually serve small dish at first and it costs 4-5 dollars usually.
In this restaurant, they serve grated radish usually and it's very delicious.
Then, we made orders of food. My boyfriend lacks decision and I choose very quickly always, so I decide where we go to eat, and what we eat. I cannot wait him...
This Torikawa (the skin of chicken) is the most popular menu in this restaurant. They grilled them five times in three days. They are very crisply and spicy.
And tomato rolled in sliced pork.
We always order this dish of vegetables. It makes us fresh!
My boyfriend use these seasonings with vegetables, but I don't need any.
I like to enjoy its own fresh taste.
But the miso seasoning was with garlic flavor, and it tastes pretty good. So I put the miso on the gohan what I ordered at the last.
My boyfriend's favorite yakitori, tsukune(ground chicken). I know he likes it, so I order it always.
And my favorite Karaage, fried chicken with special sauce of this restaurant.
When we finished all of dishes above, our stomach were almost full. But I cannot stop eating without rice..
So I ordered gohan at the last.
It's delicious as always.
I ordered one more drink, and actually, we ate two more yakitori.
And the cost of this dinner was about 50 dollars.
I think this is usual price for Japanese izakaya restaurant. If we drink more, it should cost more.
So when we went for a drink with my friend from Germany, he got and drank some cans of beer before go to the restaurant to reduce the cost.
In Japan, it's not prohibited to drink outside. But of course, we don't drink while walking.
When you come to Japan, I'd like to tell you some good restaurants! Please ask me (* v *)!!!!
