The top karaage spots across the U.S. and Canada

Chicken Karaage, or Japanese fried chicken, has been a delight for decades. This deep fried chicken thigh meat is marinated in soy sauce, coating the outside with a crispy layered crunch, and leaving the inside with a juicy, tender finish. Some throw it in their ramen, some dip it in spicy mayo. However you flip it, these bite sized chicken thighs have become a popular dish for all! Check out the list below of the top karaage spots/eateries across the U.S. and Canada as listed on Yelp.
