Windex taste

Hi, I ate at a Japanese restaurant earlier tonight where I ordered Oyako don. The rice, onions, egg, and mushrooms all tasted fine, but the pieces of chicken had a windex-like taste to them. What are the possibilities here? Is there a common ingredient in Oyako don that might taste like windex? Could it be the mirin? I eat katsu don frequently at this same restaurant, and I've never experienced the windex taste. I'm actually a little bit worried that they may have been cleaning something with windex in the kitchen, and it got in my food. Has anyone else ever experienced this with oyako don before? Either way, any ideas on this subject are greatly appreciated. Thanks!
