Yakitori in Miyazaki

This homely shop serves jidori (local chicken), full of flavour but tougher and cooked rarer than you may be used to. The standard is momoyaki (grilled chicken leg), but tataki (seared; ¥700) and sashimi (what you think it is; ¥700) are also popular, and meals come with light and delicious chicken broth. For more thorough cooking, say 'yoku yaite kudasai'.

Basic English is spoken. Look for the red-marble facade tucked away down a narrow side street.
