Best Kushiage and Kushikatsu in Tokyo

Nothing better than eating a crunchy breaded piece of meat on a stick! Kushiage and Kushikatsu is a Japanese dish of deep-fried skewered meat and vegetables. Kinda like tempura on a stick but dipped in a sweet and salty sauce! Particularly popular with city workers, these restaurants are great for food and drinks after a long days work!

In the stylish and hip area of Ebisu, Kushitei presents an alternative to other restaurants. They serve up perfectly curated dishes that you just quite find anywhere else. Think french inspired minimalist designed dishes. Beer or Whisky Highballs are the usual drinks that accompany kushiage style food, however here you'll find yourself ordering a bottle of wine or a glass of champagne.
