One of my favorite things to do on the weekends is having dinner with good friends at a Japanese izakaya or yakitori restaurant. The casual gastro-pub settings and the scrumptious fares offered at these restaurants have had me hooked since my first trip to Tokyo many years ago. I just love yakitori, which is Japanese grilled chicken skewers over charcoal fire, with a simple salt or tare (soy sauce) seasoning.
