This tiny specialty stand serves very juicy and delicious fried chicken, Spanish rather than karaage in style, with mild garlicky flavoring and quite ample volume. They claim the chicken tastes better when you eat it with your hands, and who are we to argue? Three pieces of chicken will set you back Y1,130, and it's really quite a lot of meat, definitely enough to share if you can get them to cut the pieces in half for you.

Other dishes on the very compact menu are chicken wings, fried-chicken sandwiches, steamed-chicken sandwiches, and Spanish Serano ham and cheese sandwiches, with the sandwiches served on hot-dog buns. Fries, cole slaw and pickles are the side dishes.

Since it's part of the very cooperative Toranomon Yokocho complex, you can accompany your chicken with craft beer from the stand next door or wines from the wine bar across the aisle. The limited menu fits in well with the Yokocho's "hashigo plan" where you can have small snacks and drinks at multiple bars and restaurants during the course of an evening. They also have take-out service.
