Gather your loved ones for a new culinary experience
this Christmas at Yakitori#1, Mermaid Quay

Fed up of seeing ‘turkey and all the trimmings’ everywhere this festive period? Christmas is the time for family, friends and good food, but there’s only so much cranberry and stuffing a person can handle. So why not opt for trying food from a different culture this Christmas? 

Did you know that Japan goes cluckers for KFC at Christmas time? In fact, every Christmas an estimated 3.6 million Japanese families indulge in the now nation-wide tradition of Kentucky Fried Chicken for Christmas. While we all love a bargain bucket, instead of heading down to your local KFC why not sample some authentic Japanese food this festive period. Yakitori#1 in Cardiff Bay is the perfect spot for a work Christmas party, family meal or couples’ date night. The team at Yakitori#1 have curated a Japanese Christmas menu (that admittedly does include some fried chicken) and a vegetarian festive menu, served with a glass of prosecco - perfect for celebrating the festive season.

The set menu costs just £25 and features Tempura Prawn, Chicken Karaage and Mochi Ice Cream, and vegetarian alternatives Tempura Vegetables and Tofu Karaage. Crafted with the freshest ingredients, the Christmas menu is a great introduction to Japanese cuisine. Of course, there is a more extensive menu available ( featuring favourites such as Katsu curry, Ramen and a variety of hand-rolled sushi. 

Yakitori#1 is passionate about serving modern Japanese cuisine and promises more than just sushi! If you’re looking to taste Japanese food and celebrate Christmas with friends without crackers and mince pie overload, then head to Yakitori#1 located in Cardiff Bay’s Mermaid Quay.
