Magoya Japanese Restaurant


  Torisashi and Toriwasa

Torisashi: chicken breast sashimi, regional specialty of Kagoshima, Miyazaki prefectures.

Torisashi, in the eyes of Westerners this is quite possibly the most feared dish in all of Japanese cuisine. Torisashi is sliced raw chicken served in a sashimi style. In Kagoshima, where the dish is popular, a mirin sweetened soy sauce is usually served along with the chicken sashimi and occasionally with ground ginger. While torisashi is commonly made from sasami (the same thing as a white meat "chicken tenderloin" in the US), sashimi made from chicken gizzards and raw chicken liver is also a frequent option.

There is another chicken sashimi preparation that is not completely raw, called toriwasa. In a style very similar to beef or tuna tataki the chicken is lightly seared on all sides with the interior of the chicken slices remaining completely raw. If you are lucky enough to have the opportunity to test the waters with either torisashi or toriwasa during your vacation in Japan, I highly recommend that you do so. If anything, it will leave you with a story that will surprise most of your friends back home.
