I'm totally into yakitori now that I'm planning on building a 3 feet long, all steel yakitori grill. Importing one from Japan is way too expensive as I have priced several. I can weld one up and already have a design thought in my head.
I've been doing yakitori lately using makeshift setups on charcoal grills and hibachis. Bit I need a dedicated grill where I can have people sit around and socialize while grilling and drinking as I play chef.

Roadfix, do you have a picture you could post of a yakitori grill? We're redoing our backyard and are always looking for ideas. Thanks.

What is the name of the cookbook? Sounds like fun

Here's one genuine grill from Japan on Ebay I've been looking at. Hope the link works:

I love shrimp shumai, sushi, seafood sukiyaki, tempura, steamed tile fish with ginger, etc.

Too many to count. My mother was a military wife, and seemed to wind up with Japanese girlfriends. As a child my favorite was suki yaki. Then, as an adult, I moved to Hawaii, and this non-fish-loving woman (also a military vet and wife) fell in love with sushi and sashimi. When I have a yen for fried food, tempura. Do not ask me why my mother's friends were all Japanese. Military life is funny -- all of my childhood friends had French mothers, with the exception of one, and she was French-Canadian.

that's a great idea! i've learned a lot of spanish from riding subways and sitting in pubs in nyc where many signs are side by side in spansh and english.

did you know no se apoye contra la puerta, or you could fall out.

or la via del tren subterraneo es peligrosa. you could get run over or electrocuted.

siga las instrucciones de la policia or del tren crew. or again, you might get arrested or hurt, respectively.

no fumar, please. i don't like second hand smoke.

and una mujer embarazada nunca toma sola. so don't buy a mommy to be a drink.

Ha, I do understand most of that and I haven't used my Spanish for many years.
