Eating Raw Chicken in Tokyo
Japan has many bizarre cuisines but raw chicken is definitely taking it to the next level. At Yakitori Akira you can try many strange chicken dishes ranging from chicken sashimi to chicken knee cartilage.
Yakitori Akira is located in the Nakameguro district on the westend of Tokyo and offers a cozy ancient dining setting.
Since the chicken sashimi was sold out that day we had to settle for chicken tartare with fermented soybeans (natto) which was one of the most bizarre flavours I ever encountered.
Next was the chicken knee cartilage (soccerball), really crunchy and not edible unless charboiled the hell out of. The chicken necks were juicy and awkward since it didn't taste remote like regular chicken breast.
Make sure to call ahead to confirm if they have chicken sashimi in stock before reserving a table, please call: +81 3-3793-0051 (English is spoken)
