[NEW SPOT] Kushiya Monogatari – First Authentic Japanese Skewers Buffet at AEON Mall BSD City

Good news guys! Kushiya Monogatari, which originated in Japan, will open its first outlet in AEON Mall, BSD City, on May 30, 2015, and that means, tomorrow! Kushiya Monogatari is the first restaurant that offers a unique dining concept where customers can fry their own selection of fresh and high-quality foods in skewers (kushiage style). Fujio MSP introduces an authentic Japanese Do-It-Yourself, kushiage-style experience, exactly the same as those in Japan. This restaurant had a spacious dining area and decorated with a minimalist Japanese festival atmosphere that comes from the legendary Japanese heritage of Matsuri (cultural festival) and the solemn city of Kyoto.

Last night we had the privilege to experience the DIY (Do It Yourself) Japanese skewers with some other food blogger friends, woohoo. First of all, the waiter explained all the cooking method right next to our table. Below each table, there is a cooking temperature that has been set at a temperature of 170 degrees, and we were not allowed to change it because this is the right temperature for frying all the skewers.

Kushiya Monogatari which first established in Japan since 1997, describes the whole experience in three keywords: People, Tradition, and Recreation. Diners can find a wide selection of appetizers (chicken karaage, miso soup, etc), many unique combinations of kushiage (traditional Japanese skewers), salad, main course (pasta, curry rice), beverages and desserts in a modern buffet style in the culinary recreation concept.

So, this was what we do! We walked up to the buffet station; we chose some skewers, such as beef, chicken, takoyaki, squid, shrimp, Taiyaki, and some vegetable skewers too. Before we cooked these skewers, we have to dip the desired item in the tempura batter and then roll the item in the Panko flour (bread crumbs).

The next thing to do, place the breaded food on a stick in the oil and fry to perfection. If you’re not sure how long should each item is cooked, you can see the frying time suggestion that’s available on each table. Beware of the meats that has watery contains as squid, shrimp, fish, etc., because the oil may “pop” sometimes, but fortunately they provide a cover to prevent oil splatter.

Not only that, we also tried all the dressing, ranging from Thousand Island, Onion, Yuzu Shoyu, Tonkatsu, Worcester Sauce, etc. The Thousand Island, Yuzu Shoyu and Tonkatsu were my favorite among all the dressing sauce.

Once we’re finished with the stick, we can place it in a bamboo cup that has been provided on the table to reduce clutter.
