Tebasaki Wings

It comes originally from Nagoya, Japan. I knew this dish from a Japanese friend. I flew to Nagoya to visit her in 2016, I stayed in her house for days. I was very lucky that I could try her mother's authentic Japanese cooking during my stay. This Japanese style chicken wings are one of the dishes I've tried.

It is basically chicken wings that are floured and deep-fried first then cooked in a soy sauce mixture. It taste sweet, sour and savory, can be enjoyed as an appetizer or as a side dish.
