Deep Fried Skewers Food Stall: Fukurou
The Deep Fried Skewer Food Stall: Fukurou (Kushi-Katsu Yatai: Fukurou) is an izakaya (Japanese-style pub restaurant) with an at-home atmosphere that specializes in the local Osaka specialty of “kushi-katsu”, deep fried skewers. The prices are reasonable running from 100 yen for each kushi-katsu skewer while packing a slightly larger size than what you would normally find. You can also find a side menu with a wide variety of over 60 dishes made by the experienced chefs. All of the fragrant skewers on the menu are deep fried with a thin coating of batter which makes for a light and flavorful crunchiness that will keep you eating stick after stick.

Kushi-katsu with a food stall atmosphere
The inside of the restaurant which offers only counter seating is based on the image of an old kushi-katsu food stall. The largely female staff creates a cheerful atmosphere to go along with the menu that includes around 50 different varieties of kushi-katsu skewers! Fukurou specializes in flavor and volume while offering skewers for the reasonable price of 100 to 250 yen a stick.
Popular 5 skewer set: “Kushi-katsu go-honmori”

Carefully simmered “dote-yaki”
The “dote-yaki” (400 yen) is another local specialty of Osaka made of beef sinew simmered in white miso. This delicious dish is made by carefully steaming the beef sinew before adding it to the house-made specialty white miso broth in which it is simmered.
