Introduced on some TV programs, this dish became popular and famous among turists. It goes without saying that it has been loved by local people.
The photo above shows what yakitoribento is like. Left is Shio（塩）flavored with salt and pepper and right is Tare（たれ）flavored with sweet soy sauce. There are 3 different sizes; small, medium and large. The left is medium and the right is large.
There is a knack before eating this dish. There is a good way to pull all the skewers away easily. Opening the lid, you will find dents on the edge of a plastic container. Place skewers on each dent.
Then, use the lid to pull away skewers.
Additional information for Yakitori-bento
Yakitori usually means grilled chicken in other parts of Japan. But here in Hakodate, the word Yakitori refers to skewered chunks of meat and use of pork is prevalent. Watch at a picture of the container. A pig is cooking yakitori. So if your religion forbids you to eat pork, I can’t recommend this dish to you.
I ordered a Chinese Tea Set of 550yen. The set consists of a glass of chinese tea and a plate of chinese buns. You can choose a tea from wide range of selections.
As for the buns, you can choose one from three; 1. two buns which have sweetbean paste inside, 2. two buns which have vegetable inside, 3. a sweetbean paste bun and a vegetable bun. My choice was 3.
I'm sure they use home-made dough and it was really delicious. The vegetable bun had thinly sliced carrot and raisins inside. As respects tea, you can add boiled water as many as you like.
My friend ordered a "Suigyo-za set" with 700yen. A glass of tea and boiled meat dumplings were offered. The meat dumplings were also tasty and I'm sure I'll order it next time.
There is a parking lot in front of the cafe.
