Robata Yaki simply means "By the Fire Side" in Japanese. The best seats in our restaurant are the counter seats where the art of grilling can be seen live. We at ISSIAN specialize in Ishiyaki meaning "Stone Grill."
Ishiyaki (Stone Grill) is a traditional way of cooking among fishermen on Tsushima Island. It began when a fisherman heated up a stone on the shoreline and broiled the seafood on it. Cooking on stone provides far-infrared radiation that cooks the meat very juicy and soft. By absorbing any extra oil contained in the meat, food is cooked without any smoke allowing the freshness and the sweetness of the dish to be maximized.
