1st Momo Kizoku Yaki (Tare) もも貴族焼（たれ）
Grilled Chicken Thigh and White Leek (Barbecue Sauce)
Momo Kizoku Yaki-Spice もも貴族焼（スパイス）
I prefer sauce than spice.
Grilled Chicken Thigh Sprinkled Spice
2nd Yakitori Don 焼とり丼
Grilled Chicken Thigh on Rice
Rice Types Dishes
Torikizoku offers 4 types of rice dishes at the same price, such as grilled chicken bowl, simple white rice, seasoned rice and porridge of rice.
The simple white rice dish is a small amount, so I recommend the other rice dishes, which also have small amounts of rice, but contain many other ingredients, and cost effective!
3rd Mi-tare (Momo) みたれ（もも肉）
Grilled Chicken Thigh - Barbecue Sauce
* If you don't need the white leek, this one is better.
This is also my favorite one.
4th Tori Ten Served with Plum Sauce とり天 梅肉ソース添え
Chicken Tempura Served with Sweet Plum Sauce
I sometimes order this. I like it.
5th Seseri (Shio) せせり (塩)
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
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
It is like mini cheese hamburgers. Taste good!
8th 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.
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.
About typical chicken namban:
9th Oyadori Aburi Yaki (Shio Ponzu Taste) 親鶏炙り焼（塩ポン酢味）
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
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.
Looking at the flame of the solid fuel and steam from the pod on my table is fun!
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.

It is around sternum.
Hiza Nankotsu-Shio ひざなんこつ

If you want to try the cartilage skewers for the first time, I recommend Yagen Nankotsu やげんなんこつ, because Hiza Nankotsu ひざなんこつ is much more crispy and fatty than the other cartilage skewer Yagen Nankotsu やげんなんこつ.

My Favorite Drinks

This jug is very large. Taste good with smooth and light flavor!
Kinmugi is alcoholic beverage tastes like beer.

Premium Malt's is smaller than Kinmugi 金麦 beer at this bar, but much better flavor.
