Yakiniku – 焼き肉

Yakiniku (焼き肉: “bake, grill”, “meat”) is a Japanese “dish” where the main ingredient is grilled meat. It’s original from Korea, but it’s been a long time since it was introduced in Japan. Nowadays there are many differences between the Japanese “yakiniku” and the Korean “yakiniku”. Korean “yakiniku” is called bulgogi and the meat is marinated with soy sauce and sugar, it’s usually eaten with kimchi. On the other hand, in the Japanese version the meat is not marinated and it’s usually dressed with tare sauce.

The most common “yakiniku” is served with beef, if you like loin you should as for “rōsu” ( ロース), if you like ribs then ask for “karubi” (カルビ). The meat is cut in little pieces and bones are removed before serving, this way it’s easier to eat it with chopsticks.

  1. Hehe that’s the downside to it. People get impatient and do nothing but stare at the meat… or steal the meat other’s put down.

  2. mmmmm…yakiniku. My favourite as well. Used to like karubi, but nowadays I’m beginning to find it a little too fatty for me, so I’ve been ordering rosu. Tarantino’s staring at the niku like how he looked at Juliette Lewis in From Dusk Till Dawn.
