Kushikatsu Got Your Tongue

HK Magazine - - DINING - Edited by Les­lie Yeh

The wave of na­tive Ja­panese restau­rants open­ing Hong Kong out­posts is show­ing no signs of slow­ing any­time soon, and our city’s lat­est ca­sual iza­kaya hails from the food cap­i­tal of Osaka. Jan Jan Kushikatsu (2/F, 100 Queen’s Rd. East, Wan Chai, 2157-1408, jan­jan.com.hk) is helmed by Osaka na­tive chef Hideki Abeyama, who’s bring­ing the pop­u­lar Osaka snack, kushikatsu, to town: Heftier than tra­di­tional tem­pura due to the ad­di­tion of bread crumbs in the bat­ter and paired with a tonkatsu dip­ping sauce, we pre­dict it won’t be long be­fore the lines start to form, given our ob­ses­sion with any­thing deep-fried and/or served on a stick. But this is no street food shack: Jan Jan of­fers a cozy, 1,000-sq.-ft. of wood and con­crete de­tails in a mod­ern, edgy space, along with two pri­vate rooms for group din­ing.

Fried stuff on a stick? Yes, please
