Japanese Fried Chicken Dinner Kit for 2

Japanese-style fried chicken marinated in an assortment of spices and fried to crispy perfection! Finish it off with a little sea salt and a squeeze of fresh lemon, and enjoy with a side of dashi rice and obanzai, which are small seasonal dishes from Kyoto that include Satsumaimo Kanroni (Japanese sweet potatoes simmered in a sweet broth with a hint of soy sauce), Pirikara Zenmai (Asian royal fern tossed with a savory, spicy soy sauce), and Kinoko (Shiitake, maitake, shimeji, and enoki mushrooms marinated in a seaweed broth).

Be sure to add on EN’s signature homemade tofu kit! If you’ve never experienced freshly-made tofu before, this dish will change your life. Served warm or cold, the silky texture of fresh tofu finished with wari-joyu and a little sea salt will transport you to Japan.

EN Japanese Brasserie was founded by star restaurateur Reika Alexander in New York City’s West Village in 2004, and since then it’s established itself as the city’s premier destination for seasonally-inspired, authentic Japanese cuisine. The true flavors of Japan are presented in its thoughtful and nuanced offerings, which have been beloved by in-the-know New Yorkers for more than 15 years and can now be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home.

Food arrived on time and each component was individually packaged and sealed. The fried chicken was very tasty but a bit salty. The rice and sides were also yummy.
