Yakyudori Ramen & Yakitori

It’s been a while since I’ve been to Yakyudori Ramen & Yakitori. The last time I went, the ramen was really salty, but I wanted to go back once they started serving Yakitori. I found out recently that they are now serving Yakitori, after reading mmm-yoso’s post.
I put it on my to-do list, but didn’t expect to get to it as soon as I did. But this weekend, BF and I found ourselves wanting a light dinner and decided to go check out Yakitori.
It was pretty late when we went, and I was worried about crowds. It was crowded, but we were able to be seated within 5 minutes. We were seated in the bar section, which was great because I was able to observe all the grilling action.
Despite how busy the place was, everything came out really fast. I was impressed with how fast our food arrived. The yakitori items came out as quickly as when we’ve ordered ramen in the past. As a result, our meal ended up being very quick, which is just what I was looking for.
Quail eggs (uzura)
The quail eggs were grilled and seasoned with a simple salt and pepper. I love quail eggs, but these weren’t very different from the ones I normally make except that they were grilled.
Overall, it was a nice, light dinner. I was happy we got our food quick and were out of the place in under an hour. The staff was also very friendly and happy. I’ll come back again to try more yakitori items.
