Yakitori, literally grilled bird, is a Japanese type of kebab made from several bite-sized pieces of chicken meat skewered on a bamboo stick and barbecued, usually over charcoal. Diners ordering yakitori usually have a choice of having it served with simply salt or miso paste. The sauce is applied on the skewered meat and is grilled until delicately cooked. Yakitori is a very popular dish in Japan, many working people grab a yakitori and a beer from yakitori stalls on the way home from work with a beer.
