Yakitori refers to meat and vegetables – mostly chicken – which are skewered and grilled over a charcoal fire.
Yakitori restaurants are usually cheap and cheerful places and very popular venues for after work drinking.
Due to its ease of preparation and portability, yakitori is a very popular street food, often sold from small carts and stalls known as yatai, which are also to be found during festivals.
Strictly speaking, anything skewered and grilled that isn’t poultry based falls under the banner of kushiyaki, although the terms are fairly interchangeable.
