No Double Dipping!

Kushikatsu Daruma is basically like hard candy with a surprise center..

Kushikatsu Daruma is probably the only local restaurant I know that serves legitimate Kushikatsu. Kushikatsu (串カツ), also known as kushiage (串揚げ), is a Japanese dish made of deep-fried skewered meat OR vegetables. The place has been getting rave all around social media due to its visual marketing and the famous "no double dipping" policy, which in fact, is the restaurant's #1 rule.

Kushikatsu Daruma hits all the common Japanese visuals but adding a twist here and there. Customers will love the animation and the art works that surround the place- it's more of an old school vibe but adding some LED flashy aesthetics for that extra "oomf".


Kushikatsu Daruma's specialty is of course Kushikatsu- all 36 of them (sheesh!). Formed with a secret batter and served with a secret sauce, the skewers are like a mysterious wonderland. Each meat or vegetable is beautifully coated with a golden brown breading that will leave you guessing for more.  And don't get me started on the no double dipping sauce- seriously though! it was really tempting to double dip but you'll never know if someone will jump you from behind- ha! 

The sheer mystery of the secrets are real treat of Kushikatsu Daruma that sets them apart from other Japanese Restaurants.

But aside from skewers, the restaurant also serves other dishes like rice bowls. Another thing to try is their Chūhai (チューハイ or 酎ハイ), often sold as Chu-Hi as a canned drink, is an alcoholic drink originating from Japan. Definitely a must-try!

Will I come back? Definitely.

What we ordered:

-Karaage Nanban Rice
-Mango Chu-Hai
-Apple Cinnamon Chu-Hai
