We’re going behind the counter at a local family-owned Japanese chicken speciality shop in Tokyo Japan. This is tour from inside of their kitchen from their morning open time of 5:00AM. This Tokyo hidden gem chicken shop receives farm fresh chicken deliveries daily, refrigerating them overnight to bring out the natural umami from their bones, and finally dressing them first thing the next morning, which produces an unmatched level of freshness and flavor when compared to machine processed chickens sold at the supermarket. This hidden Japanese chicken in Gotanda, is known for its umami-rich, juicy and tender meat selectively sourcing domestic free-range chickens called daisen-dori and shingen-dori from Totori and Yamanashi prefectures, which has remained unchanged since the shop was first opened. It’s one of the reasons why many of it’s customers often say, they won’t shop anywhere else. It’s also perfect to get some Tokyo Street Food or Japanese Street Food if you are in the neighborhood. Shinanoya, opened in 1949 going back 3 generations and located just a 3 minute walk from Gotanda station. They uniquely dress their chickens from the start of each morning to deliver the freshest chicken meat and dishes to their customers as possible. One of my favorites is the Karaage Fried Chicken but they server all sorts of Japanese sozai dishes such as yakitori, korroke and chicken menchi.
