3. Cushy Kushikatsu
With several locations dotted around the city, is frequented by both visitors and locals alike, with a simple, fast-food like atmosphere that lets you overindulge on fried skewers and beer without denting your wallet. The kushikatsu (fried skewers) here are lightly battered and fried to a golden brown, with little residual oil or fat—making the popular Japanese snack almost feel like a healthy dinner option ( almost). Get all sorts of ingredients fried up, and don’t forget to wash it down with copious amounts of cold Japanese beer.
