Hokkori-ya: Hinai Chicken

Hinaiji chicken is one of Japan's top three local chicken breeds. Fed a diet of mostly fruits and vegetables, the chickens are raised free range in a cool climate on wide lands, giving their meat a particular tenderness and richness of flavor. At Hikkori-ya, we serve Japanese cuisine with a focus on this special type of chicken. During lunch hours, we recommend our speciality chicken and egg rice bowl. While jazz music plays in our Japanese-styled restaurant, enjoy your Hinaiji chicken meals with Japanese sake or wine.
