Yakitori Do (焼き鳥道)
Posted by: Wen Ching In: Japanese Food
One of the good Japanese food places which opened until late in KL is Yakitori Do, a place where me and my colleagues frequent after work.
As the name of the restaurant suggests, Yakitori Do serves Yakitori, Japanese skewered food. Priced at RM4.90 per stick, the Negima (ねぎま) and Sunagimo (砂肝) was delicious. The Negima, chicken and leek skewer, in my opinion, is not to be missed, it was grilled to perfection coupled with crunchy skin, a must try in Yakitori Do!
Their pork skewer is also worth trying out if you’re a pork lover. Also priced at RM4.90 per stick, the Butakushi Muroran Yakitori (豚串室蘭風焼き鳥タレ) was absolutely delicious. The sweet sauce complemented the juicy pork very well, I loved it!
Also one of my favourites, the Tsukimi Tsukune (月見つくね) was highly recommended. Priced at RM5.90, the chicken meatball was served with a half boiled egg. The egg gave the meatball a smoother texture, very tasty indeed.
Also worth mentioning was the Grilled Potato with Mentaiko (ジャガイモ明太子焼き) which was priced at RM3.90. The potato was nicely grilled, extremely tasty when eaten with their Mentaiko (cod fish roe) sauce. I would highly recommend my readers to try this out!
By now I’m pretty sure my readers would know that I am a big eater. Since the skewers can’t fill my tummy up, I ordered a Mentaiko Cream Udon (明太子クリームうどん) to share. The pasta sauce was similar to the one used in the Grilled Potato with Mentaiko above, very rich and creamy, every bite was so sinful but delicious, best eaten when it was served warm!
I tried their Omusubi (おむすび) as well. Priced at RM4.90, there were three selections for the filling of this rice ball wrapped in Nori – Salmon, Mentaiko and Japanese Plum. I had the Mentaiko Omusubi. Yup, there’s no mistake that I like Mentaiko a lot. The Mentaiko Omusubi was simple and nice and it was what I called comfort food.
I really enjoy dining in this place, it’s an extra advantage that it opens until late everyday. As for drinks, Yakitori Do serves a variety of Sake, Shochu and Japanese beers. One of my favourite beers would be their Sapporo beer. Look out for their seasonal menu for more good food. For more information, please check out their Facebook page here!
