We went to a fun place for dinner with some friends. Our boys love kushiage--fried stuff on sticks. This kushiage place combined two great Japanese trends: Tabehodai (all you can eat) and Do it Yourself.
We got trays of starch and bread crumbs.Then you pick out the food you want at the buffet (chicken, shrimp, scallops, veggies). Alek still has a bit of zombie hair.
And fry it up. Yes, Aunt Lisa, that's hot oil.
They even had these cute tai-yaki on sticks. (There's azuki paste inside).
I dipped mine in bread crumbs and fried it up. Because, you know, I wasn't sure when I'd get another chance to eat a deep fried tai-yaki!
We did some damage,
...but not so much compared to the six teenage boys sitting at the next table.
