Ryoutan Chicken Wing Karaage Kyara
Ryoutan Chicken Wing Karaage Kyara (“Ryoutan-no-tebasaki Karaage Kyara”) is a popular karaage (Japanese-style fried chicken) shop located in the birthplace of karaage specialty shops in Usa City, Oita and is famous for selling the most karaage in all of Japan. The signature dish of this restaurant is the Ryoutan tebasaki (chicken wings)! It was these Ryoutan tebasaki that won the shop the glory of the No. 1 chicken wings in all of Japan at the Karaage Grand Prix in the chicken wing category, and so this shop isn’t number one for no reason.

Masterful karaage made with top-quality ingredients
Once you bite into the karaage from Ryoutan, all of which is made with 100% domestic chicken, your mouth will overflow with flavorful juices from the delicious chicken meat. The tebasaki, made with carefully selected fresh chicken from neighboring Miyazaki Prefecture known for its thick and juicy meat, are especially popular and in limited stock so it’s not uncommon for the shop to sell out before closing. For those set on tebasaki we recommend heading to the shop early!
Aromatic fragrance that will build your appetite!
The most popular item on the menu is of course, the Ryoutan tebasaki (1 wing for 120 yen). These deep fried tebasaki with crispy aromatic skin and juicy meat inside have a fragrance that will build your appetite for sure! They are large so go ahead and don’t hold back!
Chicken breast meat that is surprisingly soft and juicy!
The boneless breast meat (hone-nashi mune) (160 yen) is another popular item on the menu that doesn’t have the dry texture often acquainted with chicken breast meat and is instead super juicy and soft. Most of the karaage in Usa City is made with a strong flavoring of garlic soy sauce, but this shop uses a slightly lighter sauce that enhances the perfect balance of saltiness!
