Popular Grilled Chicken on Skewer -Mifune in Iwamizawa-
October 10th, 2014
Mifune (三船) is a popular Yakiroti shop in Iwamizawa city and was founded in 1965. My friend's father came from Iwamizawa, and he seems to eat grilled chicken giblets on skewers if his family return home. Iwamizawa is famous for the grilled chicken giblets on skewers as well as Bibai, too. It is Mifune that my friend recommended. A business started at 15:00. There were already 3 groups of visitors at counter seats when I entered here at 15:00 after a noren was hung at an entrance of the Yakitori shop. It will be evidence loved by local people. A certain old man ate a barbecued chicken and ate buckwheat noodles, and he received the grilled chicken to go. He went home at 15:10. Only 10 minutes passed after starting business. It was too early to go home!
A waitress replied "You should order a drink and a kind and number of the grilled chicken" when I asked her how to order. The grilled chickens on skewer are only 2 kinds, a grilled boneless chicken on skewer (正肉串 * Seinikukushi) and a grilled chicken giblets on skewer (モツ串 * Motsukushi). Therefore I ordered an oolong tea and 5 grilled boneless chicken on skewer and 5 grilled chicken giblets on skewer. An atmosphere of the Yakitori shop made me feel very nostalgic and it had cool (Shibui) interior decoration. While I was waiting at the counter seat, a telephone had been ringed always. That was ordering the grilled chickens. When an owner heard the number of the ordering barbecued chicken, he judged instantly whether he could grill those and replied. It was professional work.
Approximately 20 minutes later, 10 grilled chickens on skewers were served. The price was JPY 100 per one. The grilled chickens on skewers were well seasoned and was tasty. The grilled boneless chickens on skewers were tough to chew, and my chin was tired, but the grilled chicken giblets on skewers were just right toughness. I was going to favorite the grilled chicken giblets on skewers.
Visitors sitting next to me ordered buckwheat noodles, and she topped the buckwheat noodles with the grilled chickens by herself. Because I knew how to eat this, I also ordered the buckwheat noodles. I ordered 5 grilled chicken giblets on skewers successively. It is a Japanese tradition that Japanese eat noodles at last. The soup was too salty for me, but I might eat the soup if I was very tired. By the way, the prices were JPY 2,010 in total.
