What is Japanese Barbecue?
Yakiniku, or literally grilled meat, is a must-experience restaurant style in Japan. Unlike steak in Western cuisine, the meat and the offal are cut into bite-sized slices beforehand, and each slice is placed individually on a grill net or hot plate.
How is yakiniku made?
For Yakiniku, bite-sized meat (usually beef and offal) and vegetables are grilled over gas/electric grill or charcoals. Whether you are enjoying the Yakiniku meal at home or in a restaurant, everyone sits around the BBQ grill and cooks the meat throughout the meal.
