(SPOT.ph) It’s tradition for the Japanese to pair their yakitori with beer. Nanbantei of Tokyo elevates this gustatory tradition by introducing new skewer-grilled selections and carefully concocted cocktails. The term "yakitori" has evolved to mean more than just grilled chicken, and the Japanese restaurant takes advantage of this by including more meat and vegetables in their new offers.

Gyu-tan

 

Shrimp with Bacon

 

Working with the current menu is the Shrimp with Bacon (P270), which features a balance of flavors, with the lightly seasoned shrimp enveloped in salty bacon. The Gyu-tan (P170), smoky and tender, is best consumed hot to really bring out the tenderness of ox tongue, while thin pork strips add a meaty kick to the fresh onion leeks in Buta Negi (P90).
