With numerous branches all over Tokyo, this Nagoya-based fried-chicken chain must be doing something right. Their chicken tends to be on the oily end of the spectrum, juicy rather than crisp, fried up fresh with each order. You can choose from six different cuts of meat, with options like neck meat, wings, and "yagen" (chicken breast with cartilage), along with several different optional dipping sauces like yuzu-kosho and ume (plum).

There's an inexpensive wine list in addition to the usual cocktails and beer, and overall the atmosphere tends to be lively and festive. Budget around Y1500-2000 for dinner with drinks.
