Souvenirs and various food items from Miyazaki Prefecture in Kyushu are on sale here, including several types of charcoal-grilled chicken, a specialty of the area. Freshly prepared chicken is served in the small cafeteria corner, where you can enjoy it along with your choice of Miyazaki microbrew beers.
The chicken served here has an intense charcoal flavor and is less chewy than typical for this dish. It comes with a heap of shredded cabbage and a dollop of yuzu-kosho (a spicy citrus-flavored condiment) for Y550, or as part of a set meal with pickles, soup and rice for Y700. Other menu options include curry rice and obiten, a type of fish cake that incorporates tofu, miso paste and brown sugar.
Buy your food and drink tickets from the ticket machine and hand them to the lady at the counter; there's an English-language menu that explains the various dishes. Seating is at a communal table or at a counter facing the shop's front window.
