How does a bite of juicy, tender chicken fried in a flavorsome yet delicate batter sound? In 2018, Murone Karaage Chicken won the title of being the best karaage chicken in all Japan. This crowd-pleasing chicken recipe is so popular, that there are now a few shops in the busiest parts of Tokyo dedicated to it.
Locally grown chicken is paired with a classic recipe that has been around for 50 years. The seasoning is mild; a blend of soy sauce, onion and ginger. They've skipped on the garlic to make it a lighter taste.
If you are on a road-trip (there's probably no feasible way to get this chicken without a car) in Ichinoseki, why not pop by one of these locations for the perfect snack.
●Murone Roadside Station (the name of the shop is からあげ屋 karaageya)

Both roadside stations can be accessed when driving from Ichinoseki to the coastal town, Kesennuma.
