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!
