Yummy Yakitori




In our efforts to have a healthier lifestyle, we checked out a new yakitori restaurant in the village. We can't stop ourselves from eating out, so why not discover restaurants which offer healthy options? Tucked away in an unassuming space near the public market, it is definitely a hole in the wall waiting to surprise your tastebuds. The fact that the Japanese owner entertains his Jap buddies here adds to the charm and authenticity of the place.




We tried 5 different kinds of yakitori and enjoyed every bit of it! Yakitori is Japanese for grilled meat on skewers. It's very tasty especially when you sprinkle some Japanese chili powder before taking a bite. It really was good...definitely going back for more!

grilled on rice

This week was a blur...hope you all have a great weekend! ;)



Ookini Yakitori Restaurant is located near the public market of BF Homes phase 1.
