How To Improve Yoshinoya's Chicken Bowls: Just Ask For Extra Skin
I admit it. I write a lot about Yoshinoya. Despite my gripes about what it did to its chicken bowls, it's still one of my favorite national fast-food chains. But on that note, I had an epiphany yesterday while taking advantage of its get-a-dollar-off-a-chicken-bowl-when-you-bring-in-any-restaurant-coupon offer: The one thing I've been missing on their newfangled bowls is the skin. Since the chicken is now chopped up into cube-like pieces from what I assume is a big trough rather than being served from one whole fillet like it used to, sometimes you get your allotted portion of skin, sometimes not.
