Raw Chicken @ Birdland

Birdland. The one Michelin star yakitori that allows online booking in english. This is a god send because trust me, making reservations at some of these resturants can be very tough. Jiro’s especially after him being famous in the documentary and President Obama eating his sushi during his visit in Japan. Birdland is just opposite Jiro’s..so it aren’t too hard to find.

How can you resist chicken skin?? It smooths clogged arteries. I bet i can have a few more sticks of this heaven…maybe a lot more sticks. This wasn’t in the set menu. This was an extra.

Actually by then our course would have finished…but just like hungry ghosts, i ordered a portion of grill quail. Big mistake..you will know why later..

This hungry ghost forgot that there is a rice with egg dish to finish off before desserts. Ok. we are in big trouble. Mrs is very full now..me?? i can feel that chicken crawling up my throat…but we looked at that watery/fluffy egg on rice…we just push every down our throat…so please remember, don’t over order because you will be really stuffed at the end. We didn’t regret finishing the bowl of egged rice each. Yeah. You know just how good it is.

It took about slightly less than 2 hours to finish the course. What a great experience it was. Eating raw chicken, eating bits of chicken we don’t usually eat..and in a Michelin restaurant. Oh heaven. The start of our gastronomical experience in Japan!

Next Up. Nakamura. An out of this world dining experience.
