Oyakodon is a simple dish of chicken and egg cooked in a slightly sweet broth and served over rice. It is often served at soba restaurants, and this January, the popular soba restaurant Hanagen opened Torihana, an oyakodon specialty shop, inside the Hakata Daimaru department store. The broth, made from several kinds of dried fish, is sourced daily from Hanagen. It is combined with sugar, mirin, soy sauce and sake from Kumamoto to create a delicious original soup. A part of the wing and minced chicken balls are boiled in the broth before it is topped with egg and served on rice.
