“Karaage Taikou” is a karaage (Japanese-style fried chicken) specialty shop that is located in Usa City, Oita and super popular with the locals! This shop is proud to say that it will normally sell to locals in units of kg and so it will even sometimes sell up to 200kg in a single day. The secret to this shop’s success is none other than degree of freshness of the local chickens used which allows one to enjoy the ultimate flavor of delicious chicken! In the past, Karaage Taikou has even won the highest honor of the gold medal at the “Karaage Grand Prix” naming it the best in all of Japan, which is proof of the shop’s undeniable quality.

Karaage with a unique crispy texture that will get you hooked!
The most popular item on the menu is the hone-nashi karaage (boneless fried chicken) (200 yen). The chicken breast meat is marinated for a whole day and night in the soy sauce based garlic and ginger sauce and then deep-fried after being wrapped in chicken skin making for juicy meat on the inside and a crispy texture on the outside!
Masterful karaage that goes perfect with a beer!
Another popular on the menu is the “sunazuri” (chicken gizzard) (180 yen) whose crunchy texture combined with the deep-fried crispy batter makes for a double punch of perfect crunchy harmony! We recommend that these flavorful delights are enjoyed in one hand with a beer in the other!
Enjoy these treats on a walk!
The karaage from Karaage Taikou is also known to be delicious even after cooling. In addition to enjoying the fried chicken in the restaurant, quantities are sold in small amounts like 100g to 200g so we also recommend enjoying them to-go while sightseeing on foot!
