This is also my favorite one.

4th Tori Ten Served with Plum Sauce とり天 梅肉ソース添え

Torikizoku 鳥貴族 Chicken Tempura Served with Plum Sauce とり天 梅肉ソース添え

Chicken Tempura Served with Sweet Plum Sauce

Torikizoku 鳥貴族 Chicken Tempura Served with Plum Sauce とり天 梅肉ソース添え

I sometimes order this. I like it.

Torikizoku 鳥貴族 Chicken Tempura Served with Plum Sauce とり天 梅肉ソース添え

This tempura is different from typical tempura offered by other restaurants, in terms of texture. The batter of this one is crispier than most tempura.

Another unique feature of this food is that they use plum paste sauce instead of normal tempura sauce. This sauce is sour and tastes fruity, but it matches the crispy tempura very well.

5th Seseri (Shio) せせり (塩)

Torikizoku 鳥貴族 せせり

Grilled Chicken Neck (Salt)
Neck meat is a bit chewier than thigh, but richer taste. It is seasoned with garlic and salt.

6th Chicken Heart ハートたれ

Torikizoku 鳥貴族 Chicken Heart ハートたれ ハツ

The texture is a little bit tougher than chicken breast. I think that It is similar to mini beef steak in texture.

7th Chicken Meatballs with Cheese つくねチーズ焼

Torikizoku 鳥貴族 Chicken Meatballs with Cheese つくねチーズ焼

It is like mini cheese hamburgers. Taste good!

Torikizoku 鳥貴族 Chicken Meatballs with Cheese つくねチーズ焼

8th Chicken Namban チキン南蛮

Torikizoku 鳥貴族 Chicken Namban チキン南蛮

I think this is not typical chicken namban.
Actually, this is deep-fried breaded chicken cutlet topped with tartar sauce, and it is put sweet vinegar sauce on it only a little bit, so the batter stays crispy.

This restaurant has a new chicken namban recipe from October 2019. Instead of being crispy, the outside texture is softer like tempura. Some vegetables are added in the topping sauce.
Next time, I will take the photo of new one.

Torikizoku 鳥貴族 Chicken Namban チキン南蛮
Torikizoku 鳥貴族 Chicken Namban チキン南蛮

I took photos of new chicken namban.
Before, it was chicken cutlet, but now, it is chicken thigh tempura topped with tartar sauce, sliced onion, chopped leek and sweet vinegar sauce.

I think tasty chicken namban should be soaked in vinegar sauce for several seconds, but this one is put a bit of vinegar sauce. However, it tastes much better than before.

Torikizoku 鳥貴族 Chicken Namban チキン南蛮

About typical chicken namban:

Do you know Chicken Namban? チキン南蛮・チキンナンバン - Torishin 鳥心(高知)、Torisyo 鶏笑、Yayoiken やよい軒
Chicken Namban is deep-fried chicken that is then soaked for several seconds (or slightly boiled) in a special sauce after frying, made with sugar, soy sauce, vinegar and so on. It is usually served with tartar sauce or, in some restaurants, with ketc...

9th Oyadori Aburi Yaki (Shio Ponzu Taste) 親鶏炙り焼(塩ポン酢味)

Torikizoku 鳥貴族 Chicken

Grilled and Sliced Adult Chicken (Salt and Citrus-flavored Soy Sauce)
Adult chickens usually have tough meat, but it has a stronger / better taste than younger chicken meat.
This restaurant grills and thinly slices the meat to soften it, and then adds salt and citrus-flavored soy sauce instead of strong-tasting barbecue sauce. Good!

10th Tori Kamameshi とり釜飯

Torikizoku 鳥貴族 Chicken

This dish has rice, a bit of chicken and other things. It is cooked in a small traditional pot. It will be served with a portable stove with a piece of solid fuel, while it's still boiling. It will take 30 minutes, do not open the lid during this process.
After the solid fuel runs out, then steam it for a few minutes and finally you can eat it.

Torikizoku 鳥貴族 Chicken
Since it takes a long time (30 min), I recommend you to order this first before other dishes.
Hot and fresh rice is tasty!

Torikizoku 鳥貴族 Chicken Collarbone Meat 骨付まつばのスパイス焼き

It's hard for me to eat this small part of chicken since the meat and bone are stuck together well. I took a few more minutes to chew the meat off of the bone.

If you are on a date, I don't recommend this food because your fingers and mouth get oily and your face, while eating is not so cool. 😁

TORIKIZOKU 鳥貴族 has two types of places. One of them uses tablet devices instead of laminated menu books, and a well English translated menu.

At the other place, there is no tablet devices and the menus are poorly translated English menu books. I wonder why they didn't redesign the menus books to have a better translated English version, which is already available on the tablet devices.
