asuparabēkon (アスパラベーコン), asparagus with bacon
Yakitori is a Japanese specialty. Little pieces of meat or seafood are skewered and grilled over charcoal or searing cast iron.
The Mongolian Mutton grill pan is essential, so of course I had to have one. The fat drains down the curved sides yielding a crisp delicacy everytime.
We shopped the Toyko commercial kitchen district...
...until I found this cast iron beauty on the dusty shelves.
At twenty six hundred and four yen it cost just under $26.00.
Amazon offers them for a few dollars more.
But nothing beats one you found and lugged all the way home, yourself.
