Keishoan/
Ikebukuro: Yakitori

€Data
Nagoya cochin, an
heirloom breed of
chicken prized for
its flavor, is the
main bird here, in
the form of yakito-
ri, fried chicken
wings, nabe-style
stews, and a fantas-
tic version of oyak-
odon (chicken and
egg over rice). They
also use a different
specialty breed
called Mikawadori,
which has a lower
fat content than
average, for their
very crunchy and
tasty deep-fried
karaage chicken.

Among Keishoan's
side dishes, the
root-vegetable salad
is highly recom-
mended. "Salad"
doesn't really de-
scribe this dish
adequately - it's
simply a collection
of steamed vegeta-
bles like cauliflow-
er and lotus root
and pumpkin served
with steamed
chicken-breast meat
and a spicy mentaiko
dip. Part of Lumine
department store's
Ikeresu restaurant
complex, Keishoan
has a pleasant de-
cor, with a few
tables that offer a
view of west Ikebu-
kuro. Budget around
Y2500 at dinnertime
for food and drink.
