Recommendation by Lemi
Crisp, light, and oh-so-easy to eat, Yakko’s breading helps make this shop a contender on the competitive Kushikatsu game. At around JPY120 to JPY280 (USD1.10 to USD2.56) per order, the binge is light on the wallet as well. This is why the narrow counter is always packed and food is always fresh from the fryer. As is custom, a tub of sauce waits patiently for a dunk, welcoming each skewer with a sweet, fruity flavor. Pierce straight through to Yakko’s best with the Pork and Onion (串カツ), Gizzard, (砂ずり), and Kiss Fish (キス) Kushikatsu. The cooks are relentless in their frying, so sometimes one of them might pull out a smoke. Just shrug it off to a local experience that you won’t find anywhere else.
