The other day, AH and I had dinner out in OC. After a good half hour wait (damn, this place gets crowded!), we were given bar seats towards the back of the restaurant, in front of the Yakitori master. It was pretty cool watching him grill stuff up. I was particularly intrigued by how they cooked and prepared the lamb chops. Specifically, I now know why they wrap the bone in aluminum foil – it not only allows the eater to eat with his/her hands, but it also covers the dripping marrow coming out the end of the bone).
Of course, we ordered a few sticks of meat for ourselves.
Also tried this spicy tuna cracker thing….
I also ordered some sea urchin. yum.
and of course, agedashi tofu and some takoyaki!
We also had some ten zaru soba……. I love Japanese food.
