Flame Grilled Quail

I’ve got a quick one for you today, but something I want to write to start off my new “Food” section of this blog, something I’d intended to do for a while but I’ve never gotten around to it.

Now, this isn’t something I ate, unfortunately, but it something I saw earlier in the week that I wish I had bought to eat!

Near Fushimi Inari Taisha (Shrine) in South-East Kyoto, we walked past several stores with men standing outside with barbecues roaring. On each barbecue were several little quails, skewered onto kebab sticks, and were being flame grilled in the open air. Really basic but the smell was great. None of us stopped to by them for a few reasons, being in a rush, having already eaten, being very hungover and so on.

Perhaps if I go back to that area any time soon, and they still have them outside, then I might pick them up then. Or if I see them anywhere else in fact!




I couldn’t get a close up picture of the food, I didn’t want to be rude and take a photo without buying anything.

Next time, I won’t make the same mistake. No matter the circumstances, I’m going to try food like this!
