Chicken and Charcoal, Dinner Rush, In the Kitchen, Yardbird • Mar 28, 2019
The Yardbird menu is mainly made up of chicken, and with an emphasis on beak to tail dining, very few parts are left behind. Every morning, fresh chickens from Yuen Long are delivered to the restaurant for our chefs to butcher and prepare before service begins. Each chicken skewer is available in limited quantities until they sell out and everything from thyroid to inner thigh to wing tip is grilled over traditional binchotan charcoal.
Thyroid (Kojosen) (こうじょうせん) – The thyroid is a gland that’s part of the endocrine system and is found in the neck. It is one of the tastiest parts of the bird because of its creamy, intense chicken flavor. At Yardbird, each thyroid skewer is an accumulation of four chickens and is seasoned with garlic sake, salt, and pepper.
