Lessons about Ordering and Payment
Lesson 1: Understanding how to enjoy yakitori
If you would like to be a yakitori chef, you should come here as soon as possible in the evening, because the amount of yakitori is small. Yakitori is sold out soon, here. This bar want a customer to buy four skewers or less if possible. Yakitori that hasn’t grilled yet is displayed at the cashier desk.
つくね tsukune (chicken balls), 焼鳥 yakitori (chicken meat and green onion) 100 yen each
Move to the charcoal stove, and start grilling. Which flavor do you prefer salt and yakitori sauce?
When you cook with salt flavor, put a touch of salt and black pepper on the meat at the beginning of cooking.
If you like the sauce flavor, you shouldn't put sauce on it at the beginning of cooking, because the sauce is sweet and easy to burn.
Salt, black pepper and chili pepper are available.
After grilling for a few minutes, you can dip the meat into the sauce stockpot, and grill again. Repeat two or three times.
When you finish cooking and its crowded, it would be polite to leave the yakitori table to a normal table, and let the next person in, so that they can grill too.
After you begin eating your yakitori, you must not repeatedly dip it into the sauce stockpot because this is considered impolite. Put the skewers in this cup after eating.
