You may have heard Momofuku’s David Chang wax poetic about convenience store fried chicken in Japan and I’d have to wholeheartedly agree. If you haven’t tried fried chicken at a convenience store in Japan, you’re seriously missing out. In this post, I’ll not only list my favorites, but I’ll have some info about when to go, along with some tips on selecting a good branch.
If you’re traveling to Japan and planning to eat ramen, Hong Kong to eat dim sum, or Taiwan to eat some beef noodle, don’t start your research with an English-language publication or review website (like Yelp). These article writers and travelers most likely had the regional food just a handful of times in their lifetime. Instead, crowdsource millions of people that eat that type of food every day by simply using their country’s version of ‘Yelp’.
