Introduction of chicken in Japanese dishes
Most of the well-known dishes of modern Japanese cuisine appeared during the Edo age (1603 – 1867), when urbanization, changes in agricultural methods, and exposure to new ingredients from abroad gave birth to new styles of cooking. Chicken became then a popular ingredient in the Japanese diet. At Sakura Hibachi & Sushi you can find a variety of delicious and unique chicken recipes.
