I tried the limited-time menu "Toriten set meal" at Yayoiken. To put it simply, it's a dish that should be fried because it's dressed in tempura. You can enjoy the combination of crispy texture and juicy chicken thighs.
The price is 790 yen (tax included). This is one of the series that Yayoiken puts effort into making local dishes from all over Japan into a set meal, and this time we are focusing on Oita's specialties.
A dish of chicken thighs that have been thoroughly seasoned with brewed soy sauce, garlic, and ginger, and then battered and fried after receiving an order. The batter is made of tempura, so it's fluffy and you can enjoy the texture every time you chew, and it goes well with the soft and juicy chicken flavor.
Another feature of the Toriten set meal is the Oita style of eating, with the "ponzu" and "mustard" that come with it. The citrus aroma, refreshing acidity, and spicy spiciness combine to create a refreshing mouthfeel.
You can also change the taste by squeezing the grated radish and lemon that come with it. Anyway, I can feel the ingenuity of wanting to eat fried food absolutely refreshingly.
In addition, the toriten comes in a total of 5 pieces, and the volume is very large, so you can freely enjoy the combination with various seasonings.
We recommend ponzu and grated radish. At first, you can enjoy the orthodox "tempura" flavor, and later the garlic and ginger flavors that are familiar to chicken thighs stand out, and you can also enjoy the "karaage" flavor.
