Japanese fried chicken

To attain a crispy crust on his Japanese fried hen, Sylvan Mishima Brackett, chef-owner of the San Francisco izakaya Rintaro, makes use of potato starch. As soon as the wings are out of the fryer, he coats them in a sweet-salty soy-and-mirin sauce and provides sansho, the Japanese equal of Sichuan pepper, for kick, and a squeeze of lemon juice for stability.
