Wanted to grab a quick snack on the way home and I happened to pass by Tori Q, a kiosk selling a range of Yakitori, or grilled skewered meat. Other than the standard skewered meat from chicken or pork, there are also others like Quail Eggs ($1.20), Deep Fried Prawn ($1.20), Chicken Karaage ($1.40) and Arabiki (Pork) Sausage ($1.60).I got the Chicken Yakitori, Chicken Balls and Mini Hashed Potato to try.Chicken ($1.10) - LeftMade from chicken thigh, the meat is quite tender although I find the sa
Made from chicken thigh, the meat is quite tender although I find the sauce to be a tad mild tasting. It is also not very sweet, and I'd have personally like it to be slightly more sweeter for more flavour.
Chicken Balls ($1.50) - Right
Also known as tsukune, these chicken balls are made from healthy minced meat with vegetables. The meat is very, very tender and the best part is the charred portion on the exterior which has a slight smoky flavour to it which I adore! Mini Hashed Potato ($0.80)
Basically four mini hash brown balls on a stick, these little hash brown are quite crispy with a lingering aroma from the oil. You can actually get a bag of this from supermarkets for more value and fry it yourself, but for the sake of convenience, this is good to have for eating on the go.
Out of the three, I like the Chicken Balls best, and the Hashed Potato second. Their grilled meat are quite tender and I'd recommend getting the meatballs! These yakitori are great for a snack and prices are quite reasonable too, although it can add up to quite a bit if you are buying more to fill the tummy. If you want a more filling meal, they also have bento sets with rice which you can consider getting to takeaway instead.
