I believe I would have definitely given up learning Japanese(especially its reading part!) if it wasn’t my mother tongue! D:

Deep fried skewers are called Kushikatsu, and they are VERY popular in Osaka and Kobe. *kushi* means skewer, or bamboo sticks.

the word *katsu* generally means deep fried meat, like katsudon(katsu+bowl) and tonkatsu(pork+katsu), but when they say kushikatsu in Kansai district, it doesn’t have to be meat.

Whatever ingredients that are skewered and deep fried, then they are called kushikatsu.

In the eastern part of Japan including Tokyo, where kushikatsu is not that popular, people generally call the same thing *kushiagé* that literally means (skwer+deep-frying).

My vocabulary is still mostly from Tokyo, so I feel awkward when I read or hear *kushikatsu* while actual food in front of me is not meat at all:)

They looked as if they were perfect film set, but of course, they are all real izakaya (food bar) restaurants in Osaka. It was a little past five, which was still a bit early for drinking after work.
