Dan introduced me to the chicken nanban bento (box lunch.) Chicken nanban literally means, chicken of the southern barbarians. Let me tell you, I don’t know what those barbarians do to the chicken, but it tastes fantastic. I have been consuming nanban fanatically for about a month now. It is delicious stuff. It is strange that in Japan the chicken of the southern barbarian is so good, when in America the chick of the southern barbarian (KFC) is not so good. An ironic twist of fate.
