What??? Chicken Butt! Kappo Honda in Fountain Valley

Posted on 08 February 2012 by Danny


Okay, it’s called Chicken Tail on the menu.  But whether you call it this or the Pope’s Nose, it’s oh so tasty when grilled Yakitori style.   We’re at Kappo Honda on Brookhurst in Fountain Valley, one of our favorite restaurants.   We actually saw an Iron Chef here once, Cat Cora!

Seaweed Salad










A beautiful and tasty assortment of seaweed in ponzu sauce.

Sea Snail with Wasabi










Chewy yet tender in texture and with the flavor of the sea.   Just the right amount of kick from the Wasabi.


Chicken Butt or errr…Tail










Meaty and fatty.   Need more.


Beef Tongue and Chicken Skin










I normally like beef tongue sliced a little thinner than how they do it at Kappo but it’s still great.  As for the crispy chicken skin, it’s so tasty you’ll want to have 10 more and make a meal of just that.


Chicken Heart and Cartilage










I never knew how well they’ve mastered cooking Chicken Heart until I tried it another place where it was rubbery.   Not sure if it was the quality of the meat or the time spent on the grill.  All I know is, I like it here, a lot.

Not everyone is into Chicken Cartilage but I think that almost crunchy texture of cartilage is great.
