Kushikatsu (skewered cutlets) from old restaurants, which is eaten with two different kinds of sauce.
There are many old restaurants that serve kushikatsu in the Hanshin area, the southeast area of Hyogo Prefecture. Kushikatsu is a popular dish in Japan, but kushikatsu in this area is served with two different kinds of sauce compared with the one in Osaka, which has a strict rule of eating kushikatsu that prohibits to dip the same kushikatsu twice in the sauce. Kushikatsu in this area has a thick batter coating – crunchy batter coating for a glass of beer, and the filling for the second glass is the way of enjoying it. Cheap, but big kushikatsu has been always a staple dish for everybody.
