Just like its name, this ‘bar’ serves up every single, imaginable chicken part, spare part, edible part, unmentionable part… on skewers!
Which reminds me of this joke, called “The 3 legged Chicken”, ahem…
A man was driving along a free-way when he noticed a chicken running alongside his car. He was amazed to see the chicken keeping up with him, as he was doing 50 mph. He accelerated to 60, and the chicken stayed right next to him. He sped up to 75 mph, and the chicken passed him. The man noticed that the chicken had three legs. So he followed the chicken down a road and ended up at a farm. He got out of his car and saw that all the chickens had three legs. He asked the farmer, “What’s up with these chickens?” The farmer said “Well, everybody likes chicken legs, so I bred a three-legged bird. I’m going to be a millionaire.” The man asked him how they tasted. The farmer said, “Don’t know, haven’t caught one yet.”
ROFL! (funny or not?!)
Ass you say? Well don’t be chicken-s*** … ! what’s the point of walking into a chicken yakitori bar and not having the works. You’ve just got to try it all!
By the by, the bishop’s nose goes really well with sake. I think it washes away the S-fat and the S-grease really well! Which reminds me, someone once asked me “what does the bishop’s nose taste like” and I said, “well it tastes like chicken.”
Ri-Yakitori is an unusual restaurant because of the way it utilizes the entire chicken and because the bar concept is rather contemporary set against a traditional Japanese mood. Ri-Yakitori also has on the menu, many traditional Japanese cuisines apart from the normal grilled Yakitori, which means you can actually eat other Japanese dishes here too. I obviously love it because l am a big fan of most animal spare-parts whilst Cumi likes this place possibly only half as much as I do, as he prefers only chicken white meat (i.e. that’s pretty much half the chicken he won’t eat la, right?!)
So, remember to check out this cool little place tucked away on the 7th floor of the Gardens hotel the next time you swing by for a movie … and don’t forget to go watch Sell-Out!
