I had dinner at Suageya (素揚げや) in Koiwa the other day. They are long-established izakaya and serve deep fried baby bird chicken without coating.

There’s frozen lemon instead of ice. So, it don’t become weak 🙂 Suageya is proud of this lemon sour. Ganso Saikyo lemon sour. “Ganso (元祖)” means original. “Saikyo (最強)” means strongest. The alcoholic is strong. And it don’t have ice. It have much frozen sliced lemon instead. So, it never get weak. This is the reason they named it “Ganso Saikyo lemon sour”.

We were seated along the counter table surrounding the kitchen. So, we could enjoy good smell of chickens deeply fried in front of us.

Boiled chicken. It’s joint meat between heart and liver. This part of meat is also called ‘kokoronokori’. It was seasoned stronger and good. It must be good for rice ! Of course, lemon sour is good friend !

Wing. The staff broke it up like this. It was deeply fried and baby bird’s bone isn’t hard. So, we could eat narrow bones 🙂
