Hong Kong's Yardbird is known for their yakitori, but they also have some other items on the menu such as Sweet Corn Tempura, Garlic Fried Chicken with Kewpie, and the crowd-pleasing Korean Fried Cauliflower. The lightly battered, crisp vegetables are dressed in an addictive sweet-spicy glaze. Think of them as a healthy-ish alternative to spicy chicken wings.
