Kushiage Deep Fried Skewers

 

Walking down an alley full of restaurants in Japan is a rich experience for your senses, small eateries offering specific types of relaxed-dining cuisine such as okonomiyaki, yakitori and on-the-go ramen. Kushiage is another type of informal, traditional dish enjoyed in izakaya bars and street stalls.

The name kushiage may not sound familiar but these tasty panko covered, deep-fried morsels of meat, seafood and vegetables dipped in juicy sauces are definitely worth knowing! Kushiage is widely known as kushikatsu in Osaka, where it is the posterboy for the proverb ‘kui daore’, or ‘eat until you’re broke’, referring to Osakans’ obsession with good food!

Often prepared and cooked by the diner at the table, kushiage is the perfect party food, barbecue platter or communal social dining experience.
