As others have mentioned they have kushikatsu as well as doteyaki (tendon simmered in miso). I didn't love the doteyaki but I am glad I tried it. We loved the kushikatsu! I think we must... More

We really liked it. The restaurant is a bit smoky but fine. Price are reasonable. Ordering the set is certainly the best bet. The card offer, vegetables, seafood or meat. So everyone can find what ones like.

Highly recommended for any one looking for some fried goodness, it doesn't get any better than this. They serve literally everything fried. From veggies, meats and seafood. Great experience and would definitely recommend for anyone in the Osaka area.

Seems like there will always be a queue at Yaekatsu but the queue moves quite fast so we didn't really had to wait long (maybe 15-20 mins). Do note that it is all counter seating so it will challenging for parents bringing little ones. Well for the food, I can only say it's our new found comfort food. Although it... More

Kurikatsu or kushiage, is literally "fried stick", and is one of the three must-eats when you're in Osaka. The other two is okonomiyaki and takoyaki. Creo-Ru's takoyaki and Mizuno's okonomiyaki are supposedly the some of the best in Osaka, however I was not entirely impressed with the taste. Maybe it's just my tastebuds, as 95% of others seemed to think... More
