Yu-Yu

I had heard Yu-Yu was a restaurant that recently opened in China Town, so of course I had to check this place out!  This restaurant specializes in kushi age (Japanese deep-fried meat, vegetable, and fruit on skewers).  Their deep-fried delights don't compare to what you eat at fast food chains.  Upon seeing them you'll notice they're not soggy and not leaking thru with oil, they're deep-fried just right!

I loved their simple decor, it was splendid!

Tofu Salad- this was one good d*mn salad !!

As you can see the kushi age are lightly breaded and small.
I remember we had shrimp, water chestnut, lotus root,
shiitake mushroom, squid leg, silver fish, Asian pear, etc.
I never knew so many foods could be fried and still taste
great than just by itself!  The foods are typically dipped
into a batter of egg, flour, panko (bread crumbs);
and deep-fried in vegetable oil.

Tamago (Japanese omelette) with a side of
daikon (a white radish).

Chilled Udon- I've never tasted udon noodles that were
gummy like before.  The noodles' texture and them being
chilled was actually refreshing to me, I wanted to keep
eating more of it!

If you're a deep-fried food lover, want to go somewhere for a cheat meal, or just wanting to have a meal in a nice and quiet place I recommend coming to Yu-Yu!

P.S. 
Yu-Yu's hours: 
Lunch 11am-2pm
Dinner 5pm-11pm
