What is “KUSHI-KATSU”?

There is a container on the table.

From my point of view  🙂

They are many “KUSHIKATSU” eating & drinking places especially in Osaka area.  But “KUSHIKATSU TANAKA” is a not too much local but still local.  The table and the chairs are still small but the staffs are very cheerful and helpful.  Also the menu with the pictures would be the great help to order for foreigners. Always a bit crowded, means very popular among Japanese people.

Now located at many places in Japan.  If there is one around your visiting place, please try!

Thank you for reading my report.  🙂
