When thinking about Osaka’s culinary delights, dishes like takoyaki and okonomiyaki often come to mind. However, there's another local specialty that deserves just as much attention: kushikatsu. This delectable treat consists of skewered, breaded, and deep-fried pieces of meat, seafood, and vegetables, offering a unique and savory experience that is sure to tantalize your taste buds. Each bite of kushikatsu, with its crispy coating and flavorful interior, embodies the rich and diverse food culture of Osaka, making it a must-try for any food enthusiast. I we would like share one of the typical recipe that is most accepted through out the Japan.


  • Assorted ingredients for skewering (e.g., pork, beef, chicken, shrimp, mushrooms, onions, bell peppers)
  • Wooden skewers
  • Flour for dredging
  • Eggs, beaten
  • Panko breadcrumbs
  • Vegetable oil for deep-frying
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning
  • Dipping sauce (e.g., tonkatsu sauce, Worcestershire sauce, or a combination of soy sauce, vinegar, and sugar)


Prepare the Ingredients:

  • Cut the meat, seafood, and vegetables into bite-sized pieces suitable for skewering.
  • Thread the ingredients onto wooden skewers, alternating between different types for variety.

Set Up the Dredging Station:

  • Prepare three shallow bowls: one with flour, one with beaten eggs, and one with panko breadcrumbs.
  • Season each bowl with salt and pepper to taste.

Dredge and Coat the Skewers:

  • Dredge each skewer in the flour, shaking off any excess.
  • Dip the skewer into the beaten eggs, ensuring it is fully coated.
  • Roll the skewer in the panko breadcrumbs, pressing gently to adhere the breadcrumbs to the surface.

Fry the Skewers:

  • Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or large pot to 350°F (180°C).
  • Carefully lower the skewers into the hot oil, working in batches to avoid overcrowding the fryer.
  • Fry the skewers for 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.
  • Use tongs to remove the skewers from the oil and transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil.


  • Arrange the kushikatsu skewers on a serving platter.
  • Serve immediately with dipping sauce on the side for dipping.
  • Enjoy the crispy and flavorful skewered treats as a delightful appetizer or main dish.


  • For extra flavor, marinate the meat or seafood before skewering.
  • Experiment with different dipping sauces or make your own by combining various condiments and seasonings.
  • Serve kushikatsu with shredded cabbage or pickled vegetables on the side to balance the richness of the fried skewers.
