Kushikatsu means Japanese fried skewers. Announced during early of the year, Jan Jan Kushikatsu from Osaka is set to open the first flagship in Hong Kong after more than 12 locations in Osaka and Tokyo.
I have been anticipating to try the ever popular Jan Jan because this specific type of cuisines are rarely found or served in Hong Kong.
The restaurant is minimalist with a comfortable bar table running around the front kitchen, where we peer and see how the chef prepares the food, and two private tatami rooms.
The menu is pretty satisfying that covers all kashikatsu and kushiyaki, the grilled items, from meats, seafood, veggies and even desserts ranging at moderate price.
Some favourites would be moist dashimaki tamago, meaty kiss fish and thick-cut lotus root. The karaage chicken is fried to perfect bite-size, whereas the deep-fried egg is stunningly made with a soft and runny yolk.
