Asahikawa local dish, Shinkoyaki and Very Good Grilled Chicken on Skewer -Ginneko in Asahikawa-
May 26th, 2017
Ginneko (ぎんねこ) is an izakaya specialize in grilled chicken at an entertainment district in Asahikawa and was founded in 1950, and is one of the izakaya along 5-7 Koji furarito street (５・７小路ふらりーと). It is famous for eating Asahikawa local dish, Shinkoyaki (新子焼き * Grilled Half Young Chicken). Customers can drink in the afternoon because they open a business at 13:00. 2 groups of the customers had already drunken when I visited here around 15:00. The izakaya is not so large, and many customers can not enter the izakaya. Interior decoration is very shibui.
I sat a counter seat and looked at menu on a wall. Then a waitress asked me "What would you like to drink?", and I ordered a non-alcoholic beer, and ordered Shinkoyaki (新子焼き * Grilled Half Young Chicken) and 4 types of grilled chicken on a skewer successively. The prices were the Shinkoyaki (JPY 1200), a grilled chicken on a skewer (かしわ * JPY 100), a grilled chicken spleen on a skewer (あずき * JPY 100), a grilled chicken gizzard on a skewer (えんがわ * JPY 100), a grilled pig tongue on a skewer (豚タン * JPY 120), a small appetizer (お通し JPY 100) and the non-alcoholic beer (JPY 400). The Shinkoyaki has 2 types of seasonings, salt and sauce, so half and half can be ordered, too. As for the half and half seasoning, salt taste and sauce taste can be enjoyed. By the way, it takes about 30 minutes to grilled the Shinkoyaki.
While waiting for the Shinkoyaki, the waitress served the small appetizer and the grilled chicken on the skewers at intervals. After all, the grilled chicken on the skewers were very tasty. Those had an exquisite seasoning with salt, and must go well with alcohol if I did not drive to here. Other customer ordered Chapdon Rice Bowl (チャップ丼), and I supposed it was popular.
After a while, the Shinkoyaki was served. Young chicken half each were grilled with different seasonings. I took a picture before a waiter cut and divide the grilled half young chicken. Thanks for the waiter! I ate it at once. The grilled half young chicken with salt was light taste, and the grilled half young chicken with sauce was good taste. I think it is hard to eat a whole chicken with salt. But the half and half is good deal.
