Skewers of kushikatsu with miso sauce

Kushikatsu (串カツ?), also known as kushiage (串揚げ?), is a Japanese dish of seasoned, skewered and grilled meat. In Japanese, kushi (?) refers to the skewers used while katsu means a deep-fried cutlet of meat.

Kushikatsu can be made with chicken, pork, seafood, and seasonal vegetables. These are skewered on bamboo kushi; dipped in egg, flour, and panko; and deep-fried in vegetable oil. They may be served straight or with tonkatsu sauce.

The Shinsekai neighborhood of Osaka is famous for its kushikatsu.[1]
