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)
Shio-Goku-Dare Sauce (Right)
Sweet & Salty
There are 4 other seasonings
to choose from also...
I loved the Goku-Dare Sauce,
garlic sesame flavor.
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,
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!
