I have been watching You-tube lately, found many videos introducing Japanese
yakiniku, one of the Japanese favorite way to eat meat. Among them I thought
theses two are nice and short enough so you don't get bored.
Though these restaurants introduced don't look reasonably priced, like the
place I introduced in this blog before. These following videos are nice to observe
how common yakiniku restaurants are serving their food, and how customers must
grill their meat at the table.
As I researched on the net, the omnibus meat plate he had was priced 7500 Yen,
which is about $80 (USD) as of today's exchange late. I think this price is not
including any side dish nor a drink. But looks like this restaurant is also serving
less priced meat plates as well, is indeed a very good deal around the Ginza area of
Wagyu (Japanese bland named beef) is usually too expensive for common people
to eat daily even in Japan. So we pick a special day, like the tenth anniversary of
our marriage, (9th anniversary is too early, lol) to have such luxurious meal.
As you look at this video, you may found that there is not much smoke coming out
from the grill. It is because there are fan inside of the table, sucking out the smoke
from those holes along the edge of each grills. This is a common style of
yakiniku table you can find all over Japan.
When your grill top get covered by burnt meat and sauce, you can ask the restaurant
staff to give you a new one. It is recommended to heat the new grill for few minutes
before you start grilling, then the food would not stick to the grill so much.
If you think it is too much work at a table before you gt to eat, I agree.
But I have heard there are some research that proved cooking by your self
makes the food taste better about 125% or so. I can agree with this research
as well, that watching the meat grilled and hearing them sizzle makes me
feel more starving.
