From the 4500yen yakitori dinner course.
Sasami(breast). Grilled with salt. Raw inside. Very good!
Momo(thigh). Grilled with “tare” sauce.
Edamame. What is with all that salt?!
Aigamo(duck). With salt.
Cucumber with miso. Quail egg with salt.
Tsukune with tare sauce. Negima(thigh and leek) with salt.
Teba(wing) with salt. Very good!
Sunagimo(gizzard) with salt.
Instead of liver, which is included in the course but one of us can’t eat, we had chicken skin, again either with tare sauce or with salt.
The quality of chicken is good and everything is grilled perfectly. You get so much food for 4500 yen – each yakitori skewer is quite big and there are 9 of them in the course excluding the veggy. Though I really think they make everything too salty, especially for people like me who can’t drink that much. Also the course is really just yakitori after yakitori and I did get a bit tired towards the end. I wish there were some rice/noodles at the end. In retrospect, we really should’ve ordered plain rice to eat with the yakitori. Having said that I do like the food here.
Dinner menu(J) here.

Came back for lunch. Yakitori rice bowl, Y1050. It is nice too but I think for lunch, Isehiro(which is right next door to Eiichi) is better.

OOOOO I love yakitori. You certainly eat at so many beautiful places. Are you nihonjin? Are you also a food or travel writer? I enjoy your blog very much.
Thanks! I’m not Japanese and I certainly am no writer! XD!!
Wow the sashimi one looks good! Is the surface slightly grilled? And you just eat that cucumber (plain?) with miso paste?
I just had yakitori over the weekend, the chicken skin was sooo delicious!
Oy, you aren’t Japanese? Wow. You have fantastic taste in food. Doko ni sunderu? Tokyo? I lived there for seven years so I miss it very much. Especially izakaya!
The first one is Sasami(chicken breast), not the same as sashimi. Yeah the surface is slightly grilled. The cucumber is eaten raw with miso only. It is quite refreshing after all that meat.
Yes I’m living in Tokyo. If I had better tolerence for alcohol, I’d definitely visit izakaya more often. XD!
