Chicken from Miyazaki prefecture is the theme of this casual izakaya chain called Tsukada Nōjō. Each meal starts with fresh vegetables and a miso dipping sauce – free refills of the miso! Woo hoo.
Potato salad, charcoal-grilled chicken with a salty yuzu koshō, spring rolls, gyōza pot stickers stuffed into chicken wings, and fried chicken with a tartar sauce. What’s not to love?
My only disappointment is this new trend of having to order your food from your cell phone. It took a long time for the menu to upload. Until now I could always say that I prefer to order from a printed menu but that was not even an option here. Staffing is short throughout Japan, especially in the hospitality industry. There was only a skeleton crew here.
Tsukada Nōjō has branches throughout Japan. This one was in Kōriyama in Fukushima just in front of the station.
