EAT: Yardbird, Hong Kong

Yardbird. An ode in haikus.

More than just bird bits
No reservations; rock up
Drink loads while waiting.

Sweet, creamy uni
Crisp pinpricks of panko, oh…
Nori completes it.


Shards of chicken skin.
I much prefer the squelch of
crumpled, crisp fat

Flurry of negi
blankets chicken hearts
Freshness and iron

Chicken and egg rice
Like risotto meets claypot
Fried skin for texture

May be a bit dear:
One drink is never enough.
Save up, eat happy.


Yardbird /
