Hinai Komachi – Chicken Yakitori From Akita

I often bring my guests to an izakaya called Hinai Komachi, located conveniently in Shibuya. They specialize in chicken, so if you’re a chicken lover, you’re going to love this! It could also be a really great opportunity for you to eat chicken raw. Yup, raw! You might never have wanted to eat raw chicken, but hey, just try it out. One of the great things about Japan is that you can be so sure of their food cleanliness that you never need to worry about whether it’s safe or not.

Here’s what entered our stomachs one night in Shibuya!

Chicken skewers – they alternated cooked chicken and raw chicken. Yes, raw chicken! It tastes good, even though the thought of it might creep you out!
Tofu salad.
Minced chicken skewers.
Minced chicken skewer with a nice bouncy egg by the side.
Because things were getting a little bit too chickeny, we ordered some sashimi.
Chicken wings. GOD DAMN. These were SO tasty. You MUST ORDER this!
Chicken skin and more chicken wings.
Tamagoyaki- rolled omelette.

They have English menus, which is always a wonderful thing for lousy people like me who have lived in Japan a while but still cannot read or speak Japanese. Staff are also very friendly and nice, so expect great service and ambience there.
