      Delicious Toriten "chicken tempura" from Oita. Perfect with Japanese sake.

      Karaage is the most common type of fried chicken in Japan. But there is a similar dish called Toriten that is also quite popular. Toriten chicken is battered and deep fried like tempura, while Karaage chicken is coated with flour or potato starch and fried in light oil. Karaage is sometimes eaten with mayonnaise, whereas Toriten is almost always eaten with mustard or ponzu sauce made from soy sauce, vinegar and Japanese citrus fruit. According to rumors, Toriten is so popular in Oita Prefecture, Kyushu (where it originated) that it once put a certain American fast-food fried chicken restaurant out of business in the area.
