I had dinner with my high school era’s friend who lives in west Tokyo. He took me to a yakitori restaurant “Donn” in Nishi-Ogikubo along Chuo line.
The average yakitori is made from several bite-sized pieces of chicken meat, or chicken offal, skewered on a bamboo skewer and grilled, usually over charcoal.
Diners ordering yakitori usually have a choice of having it cooked with salt (shio) or with tare sauce, which is generally made up of mirin, sake, soy sauce and sugar. The sauce is applied to the skewered meat and is grilled until delicately cooked.
Quality of cuisine of this restaurant is excellent. The price is reasonable (around 3000yen per person). It really hits the spot!
