Kushikatsu are skewers of meat, seafood, or vegetables that have been breaded and deep-fried until golden and golden. Some stores have special skewers, but typical items on a menu include pork, beef, shrimp, pumpkin, onion, lotus root, quail egg, small green peppers, asparagus wrapped in bacon, and shiitake mushrooms. The best way to eat kushikatsu is by dipping it in the Worcestershire sauce (if you haven't noticed, Japan likes Worcestershire sauce) or you can eat it with a flavored salt. If you do dip the skewer in the sauce, there is a strict rule on double dipping. Since at most restaurants, the sauce is usually shared between the customers. Kushikatsu Daruma (串かつだるま)
is beyond popular and you will most likely see a long line of people. Another popular place among locals is Asahi (串かつ・ホルモン専門店 朝日)
in Shinsekai (新世界).
