THINGS TO DO > EAT & DRINK Yakitori (Skewered Grilled Chicken)

Yakitori (skewered grilled chicken) is a famous izakaya (bar) dish. Yakitori menus are often expansive and customers can order skewers with bite-sized chunks of chicken thigh, breast meat, or chicken liver and cartilage, or a variety of offerings. The most common seasonings to choose from are salt and tare, a type of soy basting sauce usually used for grilling meats in Japanese cuisine. But in Fukuoka, torikawa steals the yakitori spotlight. These juicy yet crispy grilled chicken skin skewers go great with a pint of beer and are a local specialty.
