Try Eating Some Osaka Street Cuisine: Kushikatsu! [PR]

Have you ever tried kushikatsu? Let me introduce you to one of the most famous kushikatsu restaurants in Tokyo!

Feel free to follow favy!

First Of All, What Is Kushikatsu?

Kushikatsu, also known as kushiage, is a Japanese dish of deep-fried skewered seafood, meat and vegetables.
But, make sure you do not dip the kushikatsu in the sauce after you take a bite. This is a big NO! As you have to dip the kushikatsu in the sauce shared between other customers, you are allowed to dip the kushikatsu once and ONLY once!

Now That You Know What Kushikatsu Is...Let's Take A Step Into Kushikatsu Tanaka!

Kushikatsu Tanaka is a famous kushikatsu chain restaurant mainly located in Tokyo. But, they also have stores outside of Tokyo and also one in Hawaii!!

We went to the Shibuya Sakuragaoka store, which is located 5 minutes away from Shibuya station.

You can eat local Osaka street food without having to ride the expensive shinkansen!

Once we were seated, we all chose something to drink. They have a wide variety of cocktails, beers, wine, sake and soft drinks.

But you have to try the "Chinchirorin High Ball!" When you order this drink, the waiter will ring a bell, and bring you a bowl with two dice in it. If your dice adds up to an even number you get your drink for 50% off, a mega glass but pay twice the price for an odd number, and a free drink if you get the same numbers!

If you are so not satisfied with the tiny drinks in Japan, pray that you will get the MEGA for an American size hyball!

If you go with a group of 6 or above, you can get free takoyaki! AND, you get to make it yourself. It will be a great chance to experience making Japanese takoyaki!

The fluffy, soft takoyaki will just melt in your mouth!!

While we were enjoying making and eating the takoyaki, the mountain of kushikatsu arrived at our table! We ordered egg, asparagus, mochi (rice cake), pork, beef and others!

One kushikatsu is only ¥100~¥200, so even if you order a lot, it's still really cheap.

The crispy outer layer and the juicy meat inside is a perfect match! Oh and the mochi...the different texture of the soft mochi and the crunchy outer layer creates an impeccable harmony!

Pick up the kushikatsu you ordered, and dip it only ONCE in the sauce! Bon Appetit!


There are also some interesting kushikatsu that you can try, like banana kushikatsu or fried oreo kushikatsu! Hmmm...I wonder what that will taste like...

Enjoy The Local Osaka Street Food At Kushikatsu Tanaka!
