Yakitori In Japan

夫が出張の合間の土曜日の夜に日本に来てくれたので、日曜日の夜は家族5人で焼き鳥屋さんに行きました。高校野球や阪神タイガースで有名な甲子園球場の近くにある、小さなカウンターだけの焼き鳥屋さん。こういうお店は日本独特で、夫も大好きなのです。キビキビお仕事をされる様子も気持ちよく、食事も美味しく。あれこれ少しずつ、というのも良いです。5人でお腹いっぱいいただいて、ビールやチューハイもいただいて25000円。シンガポールなら3倍かな?

このお店では母がまだ時間をかけて食事をする体力があった頃、焼き鳥が大好きだった母と一緒に何度か食事をしました。母との思い出の場所に行くと、ほろ苦い気持ちになります。

As my husband arrived in Japan late on Saturday night, we all (5 of us) had dinner together on Sunday at a small yakitori restaurant near Koshien Stadium.  It’s a very small place with only about a dozen counter seats.  These sort of restaurants exist only in Japan and we love them.  It’s a pleasure to see the staff (chef) work efficiently while we eat delicious food.  We love eating a small quantity of many different items.  We were completely stuffed and all had beer or chuhai; the total bill was about 25,000 yen.  In Singapore it would probably have been about 3 times that.

We had been here a few times with my Mum when she had enough stamina to sit for a long time for a meal. She loved yakitori, so it was a good place to come on her memorial day. Bittersweet memories……
