    Muroran Yakitori

    I sat a counter seat, and read a menu. But I did not find letters of the Muroran Yakitori. I wonder if I made a mistake with different restaurant, and got impatient. So I asked a waiter, and he replied me "Grilled pork is the Muroran Yakitori". I asked him about recommendation successively. Furthermore, He said "We recommend Grilled Toro Pork and Tsukune (pork meatloaf made with egg)". I ordered those. By the way, the Muroran Yakitori is one of the 7 most famous yakitori in Japan together with Bibai Yakitori (美唄焼き鳥) in Hokkaido, Fukushima Yakitori (ふくしま焼き鳥) in Fukushima, Higashi-mastuyama Yakitori (東松山やきとり) in Saitama, Imabari Yakitori (今治焼き鳥) in Ehime, Nagato Yakitori (長門やきとり) in Yamagushi and Kuruma Yakitori (久留米やきとり) in Fukuoka.

    Muroran Yakitori (Grilled Pork with Sauce on Skewer)
    Muroran Yakitori -Yakitori no Ippei-

    The Muroran Yakitori is grilled pork with onions on a skewer. Customers put mustard on it, and eat it. Originally, chicken and green oinons were expensive in old days, so the pork and the onions were substituted for the chicken and the green oinons. A pair of the pork and the onions was loved by Muroran people, so The Muroran Yakitori spread out the Muroran. Secret sauce pouring the Muroran Yakitori was served at this restaurant. The salty-sweet pork juice spread in my mouth when I ate it. The Grilled Toro Pork and the Tsukune also were tasty! Finally a butter soaked into roasted rice ball (焼きおにぎり) was ordered, and it was tasty, too. Thanks for the tasty meals!
