Karaage-Don is Japanese fried chicken that's juicy, crispy, and bursting with flavor. What makes the fried chicken Japanese is that it usually uses soy sauce and sake when cooking the chicken. Karaage-Don can be found anywhere in Japan. It is found at food stalls, convenience stores, bento shops (lunch box shops), and a menu item that every Japanese person knows is on the menu everywhere.
