Japanese restaurant offers ‘girl’s hair-flavoured’ chicken

A Japanese fast food chain has launched ‘girl’s hair-flavoured’ chicken, adding to a bizarre menu that already includes ‘girl’s sweat’ and ‘girl’s feet’ sauce.

Onnanoko No Kamenoke No Aji (girl’s hair flavour) consists of fried chicken nuggets topped with nori seaweed and a soy sauce and seaweed dip on the side.

The fried chicken dish, served by Tenka Torimasu, is intended to evoke the scent and taste of women’s hair, according to English-language Japanese news site SoraNews24. 

Onnanoko No Kamenoke No Aji (girl’s hair flavour) consists of fried chicken nuggets topped with nori seaweed and a soy sauce and seaweed dip on the side.

While the name of the dish is more likely to put most people off than have them queuing up at the door, the creation is more like “an artistic interpretation of girl’s hair through the medium of fried chicken toppings”, says SoraNews24.

Adding to the weirdness, this isn’t the most bizarre item to have graced its menu, with the chain having already offered limited edition runs of “girl’s feet” and “girl’s sweat” cold sauces to its customers.

“Girl’s feet” sauce is based on a pungent fermented soy bean paste called natto, while “girl’s sweat” sauce used salt, lemon juice and cheese to evoke “the ‘refreshing’ sweat excreted by young ladies working hard to become successful idol singers”, Asia One reported at the time…

All three promotions have been carried out in partnership with Kamen Joshi, a girl group who perform in hockey masks.
