Honezuki Dori

Honezuki Dori

Kagawa prefecture, Japan, also known as the country of udon. If you know sanuki udon then you have probably had their udon before. However, there is a hidden gourmet delicacy there that has nothing to do with udon. This great dish that locals devour is called "Honezuki Dori", which basically means chicken with bone attached. So you are probably wondering how it looks like well all I can tell you is think drumsticks. They have this unique style of cooking there drumsticks where the outside is crispy while inside still maintain tender and juicy. There are two types of chicken you can choose from. The first one is called "Oya-dori" (older chicken) and the other one is called "Waka-dori" (young chicken). The meat for the "Oya-dori" is chewy and juicy while for "Waka-dori" the meat is soft and tender but still juicy. So, at the end of the day it all depends what texture you want your meat to be like. Some people like chewier meat while others like soft and tender ones. Which ever meat it will be, it is absolutely worth all the way to come to Kagawa prefecture to just have udon and eat "Honezuki Dori".
