A NEW Japanese Fried Chicken 
place just opened in Little Tokyo
at Central Ave and 2nd St.
(Next door to Starbucks)

Restaurant is now CLOSED!

from Japan, opened their 
1st US location in Los Angeles.

Grand Opening
Friday, August 17, 2018

LOTS to choose from on the menu.

See What Jay Eats...

Known for their Karaage Chicken,
I had to check it out for myself.
(I saw they had wings)

The chicken is marinated in their 
secret sauce and dusted in potato
starch to give that crispy crunch.

Special Karayama Sauces

Goku-Dare Sauce (Left)
Extreme Umami 
Garlic Sesame

Shio-Goku-Dare Sauce (Right)
Extreme Umami
Sweet & Salty

There are 4 other seasonings 
to choose from also...

I loved the Goku-Dare Sauce,
garlic sesame flavor.

Karayama Set

With 4 pieces of their signature 
kara-age chicken and shredded 
cabbage, rice and miso soup.
Comes with choice of two sauces.

Goku-Dare Fried Chicken Sandwich Set

With a crispy fried chicken thigh
served on Japanese white bread
with lettuce, shredded cabbage, 
and garlic sesame sauce.
Comes with fries and salad.

You can just order the sandwich too

They also have a Red Hot Fried
Chicken Sandwich dredged in a
Spicy Chili Sauce.

Now that’s a Huge piece
of chicken thigh!

Why use a thigh?
It’s juicer and has more flavor
than white meat.

Kara-age Curry Set

Japanese Fried Chicken and
fresh vegetables in a rich
Japanese curry sauce.
Comes with rice and salad.

What’s a Japanese restaurant 
without Curry, right?

Not that I want to know,
but asking for a friend...

Yup, it’s a chicken place!

Note:  additional sauces (ketchup, 
Sriracha, etc.) and salad dressings 
are to the Right of the soda fountain.

This is a great place for lunch,
not too expensive...

I already know what I’m going
to order on my next visit,
Kara-age Chicken
with Black Vinegar Sauce.

I was impressed with how long
the chicken stayed crispy,
taking pictures took a long time.

The best thing here is the price,
it’s very reasonable for the
quality you get.

I’ll be back again!
