Karaage

Karaage means deep fried food with no batter in Japanese, so you could also call fried fish Karaage. However, if it is not specified, it usually means chicken. You can get Karaage absolutely anywhere in Japan. Izakaya, Japanese bars, serve a lot of little appetizers (like Tapas restaurants), and Karaage is a staple dish there. Hot delis in supermarkets have freshly fried chicken pieces for people to take home. Even convenience stores today sell Karaage for snacks (7-11 is everywhere in Japan too.)
