Restaurants in Japan often specialize in one kind of cooking, such as yakitori, soba, or tempura. Yakitori literally means "grilled chicken," but essentially a yakitori shop or stand will slow grill all sorts of skewered meats. These meats are flavored with salt, soy sauce-based brushing marinade, or even miso thinned with sake. I prefer the salt because it does not overpower the natural flavor of the chicken and leeks.
