From here, I will listen to Mr. Nomoto. First of all, please tell us about your encounter with grilled chicken and its appeal.

Nomoto:It's been about 8 years since I moved to Matsusaka, so I don't remember exactly, but I think Wakitaya was the first place I ate chicken yakiniku.

Now that it has been picked up by the media and has become more famous after participating in the B-1 Grand Prix, there are other restaurants in Tokyo where you can eat Matsuzaka chicken yakiniku.

But in the past, beef was the main dish, and chicken was casually part of the menu.

Also, I think that it is a feature of Matsusaka that it is grilled with miso sauce instead of salt or soy sauce sauce.

Besides, Matsusaka used to have an image of Matsusaka beef.

In particular, I ate Seseri for the first time since I came to Matsusaka, but it was so delicious that I was shocked to think, "Is there something like this?!"

If you have never eaten Seseri, I would like you to eat it when you come to Matsusaka and eat chicken grilled meat.

Seseri is the meat on the back of the neck, and is characterized by its chewy texture and plump juiciness.
The long meat in the front of the photo is the neck.
It looks very delicious, doesn't it? I also love sex.

How to enjoy delicious grilled chicken

Mr. Nomoto, please tell us how you enjoy eating grilled chicken.

Nomoto:First of all, when it comes to salt or sauce, the only choice is miso sauce.

However, as for the seseri itself, it is recommended to grill it with salt and pepper, squeeze lemon and eat it with beer.

But, after allBasically miso sauceis not it.

Depending on the store, if you choose a sauce, you will be asked if you want to add garlic or not, so in that case, I will add garlic.

When the meat is cooked, dip it in the sauce again and eat it with white rice.

Chicken grilled meat really goes well with rice, so it is recommended to order rice rather than alcohol.

Would you like to order a menu other than grilled chicken, such as vegetables?

Nomoto:I don't order grilled vegetables, but if there is vegetable soup, I will order it.

For example, the white miso soup called "Tori Yasai" at Maejima Shokudo is delicious.

Matsuzaka's chicken yakiniku restaurants have many side dishes such as deep-fried food and chicken sashimi, so you can enjoy a variety of chicken dishes.

How to cook delicious grilled chicken

With reference to the photos I took at Shinya, I'll show you how I grill chicken.

Step 1: Mix Meat and Miso Sauce

First of all, the meat will be served with the miso sauce on the plate, so mix the meat with the miso sauce before grilling!
