    Gunma Pref. Maebashishi Kudenmachi 666-7
    This chicken dish specialty restaurant is located in Kuden-machi, Maebashi City. It is a long-established store, established in 1953, and its signature Chicken Dish, which is made with a secret sauce has long been loved by many people. The store's famous tender chicken is complemented by the gently fragrance of the sauce which soaks into the freshly cooked rice. We also recommend the set menu, which has a variety of dishes, such as the fluffy omelet paired excellently with Oyakodon, the udon and the soba dishes.

    なかなか忘年会も出来ないので、せめても美味しいランチをという事で、少々高いのですが、登利平で国産うなぎと鳥の弁当2100円をみんなで頂きました。 濃いめの味で美味しく頂きました。

    Tokyo Chuou-ku Shinkawa 2-26-111/2F
    This yakitori shop opened in 2016 and its yakitori made with fresh jiyodori chicken that is full of umami are carefully grilled over Tosa binchotan (high-grade charcoal produced from ubame oak) for outstanding consistency and juiciness. They also offer various other items on the menu such as their specialty 100% soba (buckwheat flour) noodles served on a basket steamer, mizutaki (chicken and vegetables boiled in plain water or dashi and served with dipping sauce) and shabu-shabu. Their popular skewers are “toridoki”—jiyodori chicken thigh and breast meat wrapped in skin. The relaxed ambience of an old Japanese-style house is also appealing.

    There are only two stores in Japan. A famous restaurant of Yakitori. It provides fresh chickens.My recommendation is Tukune. Chicken and duck minced taste sweet soy sauce. This is intertwined with...

    Hokkaido Asahikawashi Gojoudori 7 - Right on the 65th and 7th street
    This yakitori chicken skewer store is located in the 5-7 Alley Furarito entertainment district in Asahikawa City, Hokkaido.

    Hiroshima Pref. Kureshi Nakadori 3-2-3
    This well established chicken restaurant on Nakadori Street, Kure City, Hiroshima Prefecture was founded in 1951. It is said to be where the Kure specialty of miso-daki, carefully prepared chicken skin simmered in lots of miso, originated from. The slowly simmered chicken skin has a soft, melty texture which goes really well with a glass of sake. As well as yakitori (grilled chicken), guests can also taste seasonal local foods such as seafood from Setouchi and oysters, another classic dish. Managed by a husband and wife couple, the restaurant has a cozy feel with seating at the counter or on tatami mats.

    JR呉線呉駅から徒歩10分位、川沿いにある焼き鳥店です。 開店直後に入店しましたが、カウンターには予約席の札が並んでいました。 吉田類さんも訪問したとのことで、期待して訪問しましたが、焼き鳥の鶏肉には旨味が一切感じられませんでした。冷凍で、解凍時に旨味が抜けたのかな。がっかりでした。
