5th 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 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.

6th 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. It is seasoned with garlic and salt.

7th 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.

8th 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!

9th 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

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 slightly better than before.

About typical chicken namban:

10th 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!

11th 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!

I often put Japanese pepper (山椒 Sansho) and cayenne pepper (一味 Ichimi) on the meat.

Bar restaurant name

Website (in Japanese)

  • 10% consumption tax is not included in the prices.
  • No cover charge / No service fee
  • Open from evening through mid-night (No lunch)
  • Most of the branches accept smoking.
  • English picture menu is available.

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

At the other place, 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 from a different ordering mechanism.
