My first post of 2012 is a Nabe restaurant. Hakata-style Mizutaki (Chicken hot pot). This Mizutaki goes well not only during the winter, but any season since the main item is the soup, not the chicken. There are several restaurants in Tokyo which specialize in this, but GENKAI at Shinjuku is one the most well know Mizutaki restaurant among Mizutaki lovers. Genkai only serves a course menu between 7,350-11,550 yen. Depending on the course you order and by season the side dishes will vary, but here is an example.


玄海 とり山椒焼き
ZENSAI MORIAWASE (Assorted appetizers),


玄海 鶏せんべい
TORI SENBEI (Deep fried chicken skin),


玄海 じゅんさい
JUNSAI NO SUNOMONO (Vinegared water shield),


玄海 炙り刺し
ABURI SASHI (Lightly broiled chicken breast sashimi),


玄海 水たき
And the main dish, MIZUTAKI (Chicken hot pot). The soup and chicken meats are cooked separately in the kitchen and added to the hot pot when its served. Only chicken and water is used to make this soup, nothing else.

There is no taste to the soup and the waitress will add some salt to it when its served to you in a cup. You first drink the soup and then eat the chicken which you dip in a ponzu sauce (soy sauce based citrus sauce). The soup is just so delicious that if you never had Mizutaki before you will definitely be asking for another cup. And the chicken is extra tender as well.


玄海 雑炊
When you are done with the chicken, rice will be added into the soup and OJIYA (rice gruel) will be served which is my favorite part of the meal.

They have another location inside Takashimaya Department Store at Shinjuku, which has an a la carte menu as well. So, if you want to try it out for lunch or just have Mizutaki, it might better to dine here.

But if you want to experience Mizutaki in a traditional Japanese room to yourself with full service, try the main location. Unless you don't like chicken, you will not be disappointed.
