Nagoya in a weird way seem to rhyme with chicken wings and Yamachan is the chicken slaying bard of them all. A local friend took us to one of the numerous store in the city, this particular one was located a minute away from Nagoya station.
Yamachan shops are pretty much all over town and apparently they are all good. So just pick one. The interior wasn’t fancy, but I only had eye for the chicken wings and my cold beer.
The wings were spicy with a nice touch of pepper and salt.
At 400 yen for 5 wings, it’s quite a good deal and we ended up ordering 25 of these. If you do the math, I am thankful to 12 chickens and a half for parting with their precious wings.
We ordered a bunch of other stuff including pig offals in a red miso sauce.
Yamachan has a typical izakaya style menu and I can report that the shrimp chips and deep fried shrimps were both delicious (forgot to take a pic, sorry!)
They have Ginga Kogen beer on tap.
Yamachan should be on your list if you ever stop in Nagoya. It’s certainly one reason to go back to Aichi Prefecture.
