Kushikatsu

Founded in 1929, just off Tsutenkaku Tower, Osaka's landmark. The main store of "Kushikatsu Daruma", which operates mainly in Osaka city.

Kushikatsu is fried in Daruma's special original cooking oil making it light and easy to eat and does not cause stomach upsets like many heavy deep fried dishes can. The breadcrumbs used for the batter are very fine, thin and crispy. There are approximately 40 types of Kushikatsu available including beef, pork, shrimp, tomatoes, onions, and Shiitake mushrooms. The freshly fried Kushikatsu can be dipped in Daruma’s famous special sauce, which has taken many years to develop and perfect.

If you're wondering what to order, choose the set menu. In the standard "Sohonten set", you can enjoy 9 varieties such as beef, lotus root, sausage and the famous "Doteyaki" which is made by boiling beef tendon and Konyaku stewed in miso.

One thing to keep in mind when eating is the rule of "no double dipping"! The sauce is served in a container and shared with other customers for use, therefore, it is not recommended to dip the Kushikatsu into the sauce more than once. It's an important rule for everyone to eat comfortably. Please don't forget!

* Currently, sauce is served over the Kushikatsu for hygiene purposes (as of July 2021).
