Debuting in Ningyocho on August 20, chicken specialist Tori Daimyo (3-5-9 Ningyocho, Chuo-ku; 03-3662-8877) serves only free-range Okayama Momotaro birds, which were chosen over other high-quality breeds due to their strong taste, light flavor and tender texture. Menu items include bone-in Shikoku-style drumsticks, served with either Mongolian salt for a simple flavor or a special housemade teriyaki sauce (¥1,344 for 2-3 people). Other chicken dishes include yakitori (from ¥189 per skewer), yude tori (boiled chicken) with spicy miso (¥441), and sanuki udon noodles cooked in a chicken stock that’s simmered for more than seven hours (from ¥504). At lunchtime, diners can enjoy the udon with curry or tempura, or as part of a rice-bowl set that includes yakitori or chicken cutlets—a total of 15 lunches are available in all. Tori Daimyo’s interior was designed to recreate the feel of a traditional neighborhood izakaya, with red and white chochin to give a festive atmosphere. All the standard drinks are on offer, plus seven varieties of highball.
