    I’ve heard of yakitori, but could you tell me what it means? Those eggs look really good, as well as the sticks with beef on them. I could imagine hanging out there on a Friday right after work. I bet I’d look forward to it.

      Traditionally, I think it’s chicken skewered onto bamboo and then cooked on a grill in front of you. These days, almost anything can go on the skewer: beef, beans, eggs and plenty of things I couldn’t really identify…

      Oh, I’m so hungry again now!

    The food looks absolutely delicious! My boyfriend and I are starting our backpacking trip in Japan this fall and I’m incredibly excited for the food!

      I’m a huge, H-U-G-E fan of Japanese food – from the Yaketori to the pickles to the noodles to the cook your own testicle over a bunsen burner delicacies (well, OK, the last one entered the “meh” category.)

      I think I’d tie Japanese food with Thai as the most enjoyable in the world. Have fun!

      I’m not sure, I’m afraid. I arrived drugged with jet lag and my friend just took me there…
