Yaki Quan: Life on a Skewer

 Dinner at Yaki Quan @ 40 Nguyen Huy Luong, Binh Thanh District, HCMC.

Yakitori, the Japanese art of skewering and grilling various meats and veggies, is alive and well in this corner of Saigon.

The wings of a chicken.

When dining with five ravenous guys, it's quite difficult to take a proper photograph before the plate is empty.  Notice the chopsticks hovering like vultures and striking at will. 

Cheese wrapped bacon, bacon wrapped cheese, bacon wrapped okra... join in and chant the yaki carnivore mantra.

Involved storytelling as only the French can do.  Oscillate wildly.

Quan Yaki is an a la carte establishment.  Individual skewers generally cost around 10,000 VND.
