Kazan Japanese Cuisine - Lip Smacking Good Teriyaki Chicken Set @ Chinatown Complex Food Centre [Singapore]

In the short three months that i worked for the Agency for Integrated Care at Tanjong Pagar, the cuisine i often had was Japanese and it came from an unassuming hawker stall located in Chinatown Complex! 

Kazan Japanese Cuisine - besides the ice cold Cheng Tng i previously mentioned, this was the other stall that enticed me to make the 10-minute walk to Chinatown under the hot sun at least twice a week (my record was four times in one week)! 

With over two hundred stalls in the food center (many of them reputable with a history older than me), it was literally fate that brought me to Kazan; the media write-ups attracted my attention after spending over ten minutes deciding what to have to satisfy my tummy. 

Faced with sixteen different selection of bento sets, i chose the one i am most comfortable with since young; the strongly recommended Teriyaki Chicken. In fact, if my memory didn't fail me, Teriyaki Chicken was actually my very first Japanese dish!

I practically love everything, except for maybe the raw vegetables. Even the pickles, which i usually left untouched, were great additions to the white Japanese rice topped with sprinklers of sesame seeds!

Key was obviously the teriyaki chicken itself; unlike the conventional grilled / broiled version, this was deep fried and way more delicious! The crispy crunch of the skin coupled with the fresh, tender chicken meat and the sweet teriyaki sauce were simply too good to be true!

I believe in saving the best for the last. 
A sinful indulgence of the chicken skin! 

Damn Yummy!
