 Hakata Chicken

Among the domestic native species (chicken species in Japan since olden times), the most delicious are said to be Shamo and Hakata, which is descended from the Sazanami breed, with its plentiful inosinic acid that gives it its umami flavor, cross-bred with the plump White Plymouth Rock breed. You can enjoy the chewiness unique to pedigree chicken, the umami flavor increasing with every bite, and the crisp sensation of chewing the finely textured meat.
