Eating strange parts of pigs

A friend of mine wanted to eat yakitori (skewers). We went to a place she likes that serves lots of different parts of pigs (though "tori" in yakitori means "bird" or in this case chicken). I learned many new Japanese words from their menu. They served mainly weird parts of the pig. Like forehead, and some part of the throat. The photo above is sliced pig ear, which is pretty common, though.


  1. När jag var barn åt vi ofta grisfötter och knorr.. Jättegott faktiskt.. tror att det är ganska sällsynt numera..

    1. Grisfötter är ganska vanligt i Japan. Men det är väl lite regionalt, om jag förstått rätt.

  2. Min mamma var från Skåne, så det var nog regionalt i Sverige också! :-)
