“a yakitori bar”
Japanese style BBQ yakitori
Yakitori, as we know it today, started to appear during the middle of the Meiji Era (1868 to 1912) — a time when chicken were bred in larger numbers for food. In urban areas across Japan, yatai (street stalls) began serving skewered chicken grilled over charcoal.
The humble yakitori chicken is continued to be enjoyed by people young and old in Japan and around the world. At traditional yatai street stalls, restaurants, home kitchens and outdoor barbecues.
