たもいやんせ outside
Ever since a former famous comedian became Governor of Miyazaki a couple of years ago, he became a true spokesman for anything out of Miyazaki including its food. Many Miyazaki restaurants have opened in Tokyo since, but probably the most famous one that people from Miyazaki go to is TAMOIYANSE at Shibuya. Miyazaki is known for its seafood, chicken and beef.

たもいやんせ チキン南蛮
So what dishes are Miyasaki food? There are probably 3 dishes that you must have at Tamoiyanse or any Miyazaki restaurant. One is CHICKEN NANBAN (Fried Chicken dipped in a sweat & sour sauce with Tartar Sauce) for 890 yen. Its the soul food of Miyazaki. Chicken thighs cover with a light batter is deep fried and dipped into a sweat & sour sauce for a few seconds and tartar sauce is added on top. From kids to adults everyone loves this.

たもいやんせ 地鶏のもも焼
My favorite is MOMOYAKI (Charcoal grilled chicken thigh) for 1,370 yen. Chicken thigh is cut into pieces cooked directly over a charcoal grill with some salt and butter. This is why its a little black, but its fantastic. The chicken they use is a breed that is only produced in Miyazaki called Jidotko.

たもいやんせ 冷や汁
The 3rd dish is HIYAJIRU (Cold miso soup over Rice) for 720 yen.  This was originally eaten only in the summer when people didn't have much of an appetite because of the extra hot weather in Miyazaki but now they eat it all year around. Whats different from a normal miso soup is that the miso is baked lightly before adding it to the bonito based broth. Once baked miso is added, some grilled semi-dried fish flakes and hand squashed tofu is also added. Once miso soup is cooked sliced cucumbers are added and its put in the refrigerator to be cooled down. And just before serving, some ice is added to make it extra cold. Finally, you pour it over a bowl of rice. Its a great dish to have at the very end of the meal or even after some serious drinking when you are a bit hungry.

Taimoyanse is actually an Izakaya. There are other Miyazaki restaurants in Shibuya and I have been to most of them, but Tamoiyanse by far is the best. Unless you are a vegetarian, I can say that you will enjoy at least one dish at Tamoiyanse. Also, they have a wide variety of Shochu from all over Kyushu as well.
