TOKYO | Kirishima Jidori is a restaurant with a focus on regional chicken dishes from Kirishima. We visited on day after noticing that it seemed quite popular with locals, and were impressed with the meal that we enjoyed. There’s no English on the menu, and the speak little English. Thankfully one of our group spoke enough Japanese to convey that we were happy to eat whatever they recommended. Use the pictures on this post if you need help ordering.

The signature assorted Kirishima regional chicken sashimi is a must. The idea of eating raw chicken turns many off, but it’s common in Tokyo, and the places that know how to serve it do it properly and with care. The version here is a plate of breast, thigh, gizzard, skin, liver. It’s all very mild in flavour, the main difference coming from the textures. It’s served with a side of two dipping sauces – vinegar miso, and soy sauce.

If you’re not convinced with the raw chicken, you’ll be happy to know that there are many cooked options on the menu. Grilled chicken thigh with garlic is delicious, as is the always reliable option of kaarage (fried chicken. For a non-chicken dish, try the Kurobuta (Bekshire) pork, which is marinated in miso for 2-3 days before being grilled over charcoal. The taste is fantastic and the meat is melt in your mouth tender.

Kirishima Jidori also have an extensive selection of sochu and sake, both great accompaniments to the food. There’s also beer, wine, and non-alcoholic drinks if you’re so inclined.
