Fukui Kidoriya

Fluffy Miyazaki's famous broiled chicken in Fukui

By Takako Sakamoto    - 1 min read

I'm not a big fan of Miyazaki chicken as I once had a terrible experience where the chicken was as hard as charcoal. But when I arrived at this place and then hesitantly tried just one piece...Wow! What's this? Is this really from Miyazaki!? The chicken they serve here is unbelievably fluffy. The combination of its salty taste and savory charcoal scents is just amazing. The restaurant, 'Kidoriya', brings in fresh chicken everyday from Miyazaki, stocks various kinds of Sake/Shochu from Kyushu, and offers a wonderfully varied food menu. The price is about 3,000 yen/person. Although Fukui is famous for its fresh fish and crabs, if you'd prefer eating meat, this is THE place to go!

I was born in and grew up in Tokushima prefecture, and have lived in many places since then: Nishinomiya, Kyoto, Nara, Mie, Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, Chiba, Fukuoka and Fukui. I am currently living in Yokohama City. All the places I lived, all the places I visited, I have loved dearly. The historical places where people lived, loved, suffered, and fought - places where I can still hear their heartbeats - mesmerize me. I'd like to retrace the footsteps of the people who lived in Japan a long long time ago, and introduce to you what they left behind on this soil.
