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 (unless specified when you check out their menu) but you can’t mix and match. They also offer combinations for those who have a hard time choosing.We didn’t opt for the combination platters as we didn’t want some of the items included in those platters (e.g. corn in a stick).
With that, allow me to present to you our lunch for that day! I have split this into two; non-yakitori items and yakitori items.
We got a complimentary appetizer which would be veggie sticks that you can dip in their
soy miso paste. This was a good way to start our meal.
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. Fortunately, I was the only one who still had enough capacity to squeeze in the last sticks.
Till next time,
