Kushikatsu Inada

Kushikatsu in Minatogawa


Inada Kushikatsu is located in the Minatogawa Shoutengai.  You walk right up and just pick what you want and eat right there (standing only) no chairs.  When you are done you leave your wooden skewers (kushi) on the counter and settle your accounts.

I picked potato. It’s outside was crispy and crunchy with a moist potato inside.  Dipping Sauces are available but remember no double dipping, it’s the rule.
