Chicken Madness

Chicken wings                                              Yakitori

Chicken restaurant that specializes in yakitori and other chicken-oriented dishes at reasonable prices. Kind of fun to watch the hustling and bustling chefs grill the birds. A bite of yakitori with a sip of beer or sake−life’s good!

Udon s.u.k.i.

Inaniwa Udon is best served cold (i.m.o.) to keep the firmness and topped with chopped scallion and fried tempura bits.

There are different types of Udon in Japan. My favorite is this thin and smooth Inaniwa Udon, from Akita prefecture in Northern Japan.
