Yakitori Key (やきとり キィー)| Grilled Chicken Izakaya Restaurant | Sapporo

If you want to eat delicious grilled chicken wings, you should go "Yakitori Key (やきとり キィー)" in Odori, Sapporo↓

This restaurant is very popular! Before it opens at 5:30 pm, several chicken lovers are already waiting in front of the restaurant all the time! Wow! Wow! Wow!

We took seats at the bar this time.

As the menu says, it takes at least 40 minutes to at longest two hours to grill chicken wings!! When we come here, we should first order this most popular item, and then wait until it comes, while drinking and eating some other dishes.

I love Sapporo Beer!

We ordered Korean laver seaweed. We have to save room in the stomach for a large amount of the juicy wings!

We also ordered squid salad! Can we eat up a lot of wings???? (I hope we can!!!)

10 minutes later the izakaya openes, it was already packed with customers like this↓ All of them are actually waiting for their chicken wings!

Here comes the second beer!
Cheers, again!

We were so hungry that we ordered yakitori, or char-grilled chicken (meat and gizzards), too♪ I know we should refrain from ordering it for chicken wings................

This yakitori made us thirsty and we decided to order Highball, or whiskey soda! But which Highball should I order??? There are several kinds on the list↓

Look at "sweets honey Highball", limited Highball available only in Hokkaido↓ As I wanted to try something new, we ordered this one with a "secret" gesture↑ We didn't know these gestures, but I showed this T sign with my hands to the izakaya staff. Amazing!!!!

This is the spacial Highball! Yummy x 2!!

Look at this character! It is very resemble to a famous politician! Do you have any idea who he is?
A. Mr. Richard Lee Armitage, a former Deputy Secretary of State in the United States. 
We enjoyed this kind of silly talks! Hahaha!

I love this plum wine with soda, too↓

Here come the delicious wings!!!! You must be surprised at this portion size!

The dish has 18 pieces of wings!!!

It's like a wing mountain!!!

The wing is so juicy, thick and perfectly seasoned that we were so excited!!! Suddenly we stopped talking with each other and concentrated on eating it! Hahaha!

This is how to eat wings↓

 The party was over!

We really enjoyed the chicken wings!

I know this place!!! Yes! Delicious, but you DO have to wait and wait for the wings...maybe they are flying in and the chef is catching them at the kitchen window with a big net?

I checked the kitchen while waiting for the wings at the bar. Actually one old lady (I guess the owner of this izakaya) was cooking all the wings without any help from other staff. She is the only person to know the secret recipe! That's why it takes a lot of time!!!!
