A graduate of Tokyo's burgeoning food-truck scene, this stationary branch of Tanaka's Roti offers nicely prepared rotisserie chicken to take out or eat in. The chicken is marinated for a full day in a mix of herbs and spices before roasting, achieving a good balance of juicy meat and moderately crisp skin.

Standard rotisserie chicken, accompanied by potatoes roasted to a soft consistency, is available in quarter, half, three-quarters and full-bird sizes. Other variations include chicken over (herbed) rice, chicken burgers, and chicken platters with potatoes, rice and salad. A whole chicken with potatoes (serving 2-4 people) is Y2,700.

Shinjuku-ku, Kagurazaka 6-19.
