Furisode (200 yen): chicken near the joint of chicken wing🍴
The pleasant aroma and juice oozing out of chicken spread through my mouth…
You can enjoy its different textures: some parts are elastic and soft and others are crunchy.
I visited Gosen to have Yakitori (grilled chicken skewers)
The appetizer was seasoned okara (soy pulp), gobo (burdock), and carrot.
The moist texture and rich flavor of lightly-seasoned okara paired well with gobo’s aroma.
Negima (150 yen): a combination of negi (spring onion) and chicken breast
The lightly-seasoned chicken breast had a soft and smooth texture and umami.
It went perfectly well with juicy spring onion.
Motuni (450 yen): chicken innards stew
The hot stew was simmered well so that all the ingredients had a well-balanced sweet-soy-sauce flavor.
It contained carrot, gobo, radish, etc. It was a very nourishing dish.
Tsukune (250 yen): minced chicken
Its sweet sauce paired well with aroma of charcoal. Very good.
I enjoyed a combination of different textures: juicy of chicken and crispy of finely chopped spring onion.
Pickled eggplant served with mustard (250 yen)
Eating juicy picked eggplant with mustard stung my nose. It went well with drinks.
Kinkan (200 yen): immature eggs
When biting stretched outer skin of an egg, its mild and rich yolk burst in my mouth.
I liked the different textures very much: thick and smooth yolk and crunchy skin.
Asparagus (150 yen)
The asparagus oozed out of juice as I bit it. It had a light flavor.
It is good as a palate cleanser.
Sasami (200 yen): chicken tenderloin & Kappa (200 yen): chicken gristle
Sasami: It was fluffy and juicy and lightly seasoned. It went well with mild-spicy wasabi (horseradish)
Kappa: It had a crunchy, moist, soft texture. Black pepper sprinkled around the meat enhanced its umami.
