Nanbantei of Tokyo – Learning about Yakitori

Nanbantei of Tokyo – Learning about Yakitori

 

 

Writing about food has been a wonderful experience for me! Aside from getting my tummy filled (I can’t talk about what I didn’t eat); I also learn more about difference cuisines.

For example; when you say Japanese Cuisine; what comes into mind would be sushi/sashimi, ramen, and katsu. However, recently I learned about another one which would be Yakitori during our visit to Nanbantei of Tokyo. Nanbantei of Tokyo is a restaurant that specializes in Yakitori (skewered food). They also offer other Japanese dishes to add to your meal.

Browsing through their menu reminds me of our own street BBQ stalls where we would just point at what we want and they would cook it. Most of the orders have two sticks each but you can’t mix and match. They also offer combinations for those who have a hard time choosing.

Allow me to present to you our lunch for that day!

You shouldn’t miss this one as it is a great deal for its price. The breading wasn’t thick so I enjoyed eating it without the need to remove the breading.

My favorite would be the pork garlic yaki and the enoki maki (I know; I’m biased to pork). Initially I thought that it was easy to finish all of these and we would need to order more. However, I was mistaken because at the end we were pointing at each other on who will finish the rest.

Till next time,
