[Yokohama] Honetsukidori at Ikkaku (一鶴 横浜西口店)

Kanagawa & Saitama

Honetsukidori is a local food of Takamatsu of Kagawa prefecture. Honetsukidori means “Chicken with bone”. It is Grilled chicken with bone with soy sauce, salt and pepper only. There’s a branch of popular honetsukidori restaurant named Ikkaku (一鶴) close to Yokohama station.

I heard they are very popular and always fully booked during dinner time. So, you’d better reserve in advance if you visit there at the middle of dinner time.

Menu. Honetsukidori (骨付鳥) is their specialty ! They accept to order to go.

I chose my drink squeezed grapefruits sour. They served sour and half of grapefruits separately. So, I squeezed grapefruits and then pour the juice into the sour. It’s fun ! And the flavor of fresh grapefruits was good.

Caesar chicken salad. It’s simple caesar salad. It didn’t have much chicken meat on the dish. But good.

Speaking of honetsuki-dori, there are two species. Elder bird and baby bird. Ikkaku have, too. This is Honetsuki-dori baby bird. We ordered one per one. It’s the perfect decision. Baby bird was so fatty and juicy. Can you see much fats ? But not greasy at all. Everyone ate it up soon like beasts.

We shared this Senior bird. The older bird was chewy. But we liked it, too. It was seasoned with salt and pepper strongly as well as baby birds. This tastes went with fresh grapefruits sour very well.

Chicken ham was soft and good. Basil sauce went with the ham well. But I don’t want chef to put small tomatoes on the ham.

Last, we ate rice. Chicken rice. Contrary to the strong flavor of honetsuki-dori, it had mild tastes. It have soup, too.

Shoyumame ice cream as dessert. Simply speaking, shoyumame is parched beans marinated with soy sauce and sugar. It’s also a local food in Kagawa prefecture . I think it’s not common flavor for ice cream. But it’s not salty and it didn’t have much tastes of soy sauce. It’s normal ice cream. Salty just a bit.

    That chicken thigh looks so juicy and delicious! I also like that they serve the lemon for you to squeeze yourself:)

      I recommend Honetsuki-dori when you have chance to go Takamatsu. Maybe at Takamatsu, you can eat it with more casual price and atmosphere.
