Best roasted chicken of Ikkaku @ Yokohama, Japan

Found this restaurant via trip advisor by sorting the best restaurant serving Japanese food at a reasonable price in Yokohama. Ikkaku came out top and all the good reviews were in Japanese. The shop is quite difficult to find as it is located on 6th floor of a building near Yokohama station. I am the only foreigner visiting the shop and fortunately the staff able to speak basic English. All the menu were in Japanese and I know people come here for their chicken dish. So I follow the crowd as well. Do expect to wait around 20 minutes for them to prepare the roast chicken. The meal is worth waiting.

Taste:10/10(Excellent. The roast chicken here is excellent. The meat were so tender and flavourful. Although a bit oily, but the taste were so good and melts in your mouth. Slightly spicy and salty which goes well with rice. If you prefer to have it with beer, it is well recommended).
Price:6/10(Moderate. The chicken thigh price at 890 Yen. I add rice, soup and pickles at 365 Yen. Total include tax at 1,356 Yen).

Finally found the building where Ikkaku is located.

The menu. Initially I thought the image on the right were set lunch. It does not work that way. You need to order each item one by one. The chicken thigh only come with raw cabbage if you don't order other food items.
