Tokyo - Ginza: Bird Land Ginza - Oyako-don
The thirteenth and final course of the omikase at Bird Land Ginza was Oyako-don (親子丼). Oyako-don, literally "parent-and-child donburi", is a donburi or Japanese rice bowl dish, in which chicken, egg, green onions, and other ingredients are all simmered together in a sauce and then served on top of a large bowl of rice. The name of the dish, parent and child donburi, is a poetic reflection of the fact that both chicken and egg are used in the dish.
Bird Land Ginza (バードランド), located in the basement of the Tsukamoto Building at 4-2-15 Ginza, is a one-star Michelin rated yakitori grill headed up by executive chef T. Wada.
Yakitori (焼き鳥/やきとり/ヤキトリ), literally "grilled fowl", is technically a Japanese type of skewered chicken, but has come to also refer to all Kushiyaki, or skewered food in general. The average yakitori is made from several bite-sized pieces of chicken meat, or chicken offal, skewered on a bamboo skewer and grilled, usually over charcoal.
