AKA Yakiniku 赤
Two places I don’t like to go are discos and BBQ restaurants esp. bulgogi (Korean barbecue) and yakiniku (Japanese barbecue) that cook in front of us with open fire, because of the smoke.
I always praise on BBQ restaurants with the installation of smokeless barbecue table, but unfortunately too hard to locate one in
AKA is another brand developed by the long established local standard ZEN Japanese Restaurants without my attention as a favorite Japanese restaurant to entertain my friends, or even just by myself.
On our lunch table there were choices of seafood, beef, pork, and chicken to fulfill our yakiniku meal. Raw meat for an authentic yakiniku serves without the meat being marinated; we grill them fresh and dip the meat when it was done before eating. In AKA, house sauce was put on the raw meat, so I had to get rid of the sauce before putting them over the charcoal griller. The meat was good enough for the price although it is lack of outstanding, perhaps better score to them if unwelcome sauce wasn’t put on the raw meat. However, I will not refrain from return for more yakiniku due to its smokeless facility and the convenience location.
AKA also serves shabu-shabu, and traditional dishes such as sushi (raw fish fillet on a bed of rice cube), tempura (deep-fried breaded prawn), tonkatsu (deep-fried breaded pork cutlet) and more.
