Crispy fried food is amazing!
Since this restaurant specializes in fried prawns and cutlets, it fries them with breadcrumbs made from bread without crust and vegetable oil! The refined oil, called Shirashimeyu, is made of rapeseed and soy seed. Dishes fried in this oil will stay tasty after cooled down. On top of that, it doesn't feel heavy on the stomach after having them.
This popular dish will surprise you
"Waragi fry" （1,700 yen） is a popular dish served with 30 cm long big fried prawns. Plump and sweet extra-thick natural black tiger prawns are opened and fried.
