No Double Dipping!

This is Daruma... Perhaps the most famous kushi-katsu restaurant in Japan. Kushi-katsu is an Osaka experience consisting of various meats and veggies deep fried on wooden skewers. But the one thing that newbies need to be aware of is that their is a strict "double dipping" policy since they use a communal sauce system.


Since this is kind of Seinfeld themed... Now that I think of it, he does look like the Soup Nazi...


Named after entrepreneur Yasui Doton who wanted to connect sections of the Umezu and Yokobori rivers to increase commerce, his work didn't come to fruition until many years after his death. In 1662, Dotonbori became an impressive theater district with several kabuki and bunraku venues. Today, it is mainly a restaurant and entertainment district known for it's elaborate lights and visuals.
