Moriyama Gakugei Daigaku


Restaurants & Cafés


Located a few blocks along the right-hand-side of the shopping street that runs perpendicular to Gakugei Daigaku Station, and begins at the station’s east exit, Moriyama Gakugei Daigaku is the only restaurant in Tokyo to be operated by Nakatsu Karaage Moriyama, a karaage specialist founded in 1970 in the city of Nakatsu, Oita. Karaage here is made using succulent meat from domestically reared chickens flavoured with a secret marinade made with ingredients such as home-cultivated garlic and ginger. In addition to offering favourites such as chicken leg, thigh, breast meat, wing tips and cartilage karaage, they also offer classic karaage bento lunchbox. Orders can be made in advance; however, even if there’s a queue, you’ll rarely have to wait more than about 15 minutes in total. Just one word of warning: karaage sold here have a particularly strong aroma, so stay on your guard if you buy takeout here immediately before boarding a train full of hungry commuters.
