KARAAGE is very popular among children and adults of all ages.

Karaage Chicken is one of the most popular Japanese dishes not only within Japan but abroad as well. Chicken pieces are deep fried twice to make them crunchy on the outside and juicy inside.

If it is the marinated type, it will soak up the flavor and look better.
