On Wednesday, Hero Material and I got a chance to visit the Mt. Bandit Chicken Shack. It’s some hours away from where we are, but it’s fun to go there to chill and eat delicious food.
The main entrance had koinobori (carp streamer).
Sakura were in full bloom.
And our food! The roasted chicken is their specialty, and it’s totally worth the long trip. And their gyoza is excellent: not at all greasy but crispy outside and moist inside.
Their udon, BTW, is divine. Something about their broth and noodle go very well together. Actually they’re more famous for their giant onigiri (rice ball) with three different types of filling inside. Each onigiri is about the size of Hero Material’s fist, but I don’t like one of the fillings they use, so I don’t eat it.
That’s me on the right. Look how huge my tummy is. That’s how it looks after half a chicken, two plates of gyoza, udon, rice, half a grilled sausage…plus, a 3.3+ lb baby!
