Birdsnest Yakitori & Bar

The girls and I went to Birdsnest Yakitori & Bar in West End for our latest catch up. Yakitori means chicken skewers in Japanese...which would have been handy to know beforehand cause, you know, vegetarian.

Normally we would all google the menu well in advance but for some unknown reason not a single one of us did and as we perused the menu the conversation was peppered with stupid comments like, "there's a lot of chicken on this menu" and "is this a chicken restaurant"? Never mind the fact that it was called BIRDSNEST or that the logo has a giant CHICKEN on's September...we're all slowing down.

All good, I had the tofu skewers and okra skewers (which were teeny and a bit slimy, but interesting) and shitake mushrooms while the girls chowed down on the various chicken offerings and pork belly. They said it was amazing and so was mine. Especially with the fancy schmancy Himalayan pink salt.

I really want to bring Jansen here, but I think we'd run up a huge bill because the portions are tiny. We ended up going to The Three Monkeys for dessert afterwards.
