I think it was reader Alan who asked me about negiyaki.
Negi is green onion and yaki means to grill/cook.
Negiyaki Yamamoto was started over 40 years ago. The owner used to feed negiyaki to children on their way home from school as a snack.
The adults saw this and wanted to try his negiyaki too and the rest was history.
I had told Alan to try Negiyaki Yamamoto and luckily he said they were good.
Since I hadn't tried them before recommending them to Alan, we checked them out recently.
How cute are their cups?! Negi singing.
We tried their yakisoba (fried noodles)...650 yen
Their "sauce" isn't goopy nor sweet.
I particularly enjoyed the noodles, they are a little on the thick side.
We also shared a deluxe negiyaki, this was topped with beef, pork & ika (squid)....1360 yen
Their "sauce" is lemon and shoyu, that is it.
Simple, delicious and lots of green onion.
I loved how crispy the pork (belly) got too.
We'll be back.
