Foodie Friday: Tebasaki

Tebasaki: crispy fried wings

chicken wings

These fried wings are known for their crispy skin. They’re also marinated in all sorts of spices. The ones I tried were from Sekai no Yamachan.

Their secret sauce combines soy sauce with other ingredients (perhaps garlic?) and a notable kick from pepper. The restaurant also uses special natural salt from Jiangsu Province, China to add flavor to their chicken.

Tebasaki is a nice snack or appetizer that is part of the izakaya (Japanese pub) style of food. I like how the chicken wings have tender meat on the inside covered by a crunchy, spicy layer on top.

Fun fact: Tebasaki wings originated in Nagoya, Japan (a major port).
