Kushiage or Kushikatsu :One of Japanese local food.

Kushikatsu is a dish that can be eaten in the south and western regions from the vicinity of Tokyo, skewered vegetables, fish, cows, pigs, chicken, and fried in oil. Yakitori may have heard of it, but yakitori burns skewered items, but kushikatsu fried. We call it Kushikatsu or Kushiage. Both are the same meaning.

Basically, fried foods are served, but there are shops that deep themselves.
If you want to eat Kushiage and you are in Tokyo, you must go to “Toyokatsu” in Shinjuku Sanchome!  My friend  owns the restaurant and it’s really nice.

Especially recommended for “Toyokatsu” are pork ginger and Toyokasu. The inside of chicken contains the contents of dumplings, shrimps, scallops, shiitake mushrooms etc are all delicious.
