Went to get a hair cut in Umeda yesterday. It was already 5ish when I finished so I walked around Umeda to get some chocolate for Valentine's day. Hubby came met up with me and we decided to eat out celebrating his admission to Boston U.
We walked into the Umeda 32nd street (name of a building) and walked in this deep fried skewer restaurant on the 28th floor called Katsu.
It's a pretty cozy place. 4 staffs and seats max. 20 people or so. To our surprised it was a full house last night. We took the last 2 spots at the counter.
When you sit down they give you a dish with 5 different dips. And some veggetables to munch with.
Since they only serve "omakase" (chef's selection) we just sat and wait for the food to come. The way they serve the skewers is to put it on a tray with 5 slots. Each corresponds to one dip so you'd know what to dip it with. With things that doesn't require dip such as asparagus and apple, they would put it horizontally. (You'd know what I'm talking about after clicking the pictures to see them in bigger size)
I especially liked the "kuruma ebi" a kind of prawn, nagaimo shiso maki, and anago with cheese. Asparagus and apple were good too.
But since it's all deep fried food, it got pretty oily after 10 or so skewers. We called it to a stop (they'd keep making new things until you ask them to stop) and left. The 2 of us, with beer and 10+ skewers / head worked out to be about 6000+yen.
I was thinking it could get more expensive cuz' you really have no control on what they serve you. Was pretty reasonable in a way.
But I woke up with a minor sore throat this morning... (T-T;;
