Fukuoka is a battlefield for chicken specialty restaurants, which seem to be at every turn. Momoya Seinikudo Kego is one of such restaurants that appears to be at the top of the totem pole. You’ve never seen a place so packed on a weekday night! This chicken creative cuisine specialty restaurant boasts a menu of unique dishes you’d be hard pressed to find elsewhere.

Easily accessible via a 7-minute walk from Yakuin-odori Station, its easy-to-miss location makes it seem almost hidden.

The staff were lively, and the atmosphere was cheerful.

The secret to their popularity is surely their sold-by-weight momo yaki (grilled chicken thigh). With three flavours and three amounts to choose from, it’s no surprise they’ve got so many people hooked!

  • Momo Kuro – The standard. Rich and spicy char-grilled chicken thigh.
  • Momo Shiro – Popular among female patrons. Refreshing herb-salted seared raw chicken thigh.

Both Momo Shiro and Momo Aka are exclusive to the Kego location.

This shop is famous for its Momo Kuro. They only use fresh, free-range jidori chicken directly delivered from Miyazaki Prefecture. The combination of the charcoal's aroma, the spices, and the umami-filled juices make this dish heavenly.

At a glance, this dish appears to be severely over-grilled, but this is actually the secret to its popularity: The bitter charcoal accent is exquisite, and makes it the perfect pairing for an ice cold beer. People flock to Momoya Seinikudo just to try this dish, so you know it must be good!
