Kushikatsu and Denzel Washington

Well not exactly, but I did two things last night - ate Kushikatsu, and watched a movie starring Denzel Washington.

Kushikatsu (串カツ) is a simple kind of kebab I suppose. Take a small piece of food (usually meat or veges but anything is ok really), dip it in a mixture of egg and flour, then coat it in breadcrumbs, and then deep fry it in vegetable oil.

We had an all-you-can-eat Kushikatsu course, and were able to cook everything at our table. We ate chicken, pork, beef, small sausages, green peppers, pumpkin, onion slices, smoked cheese, mashed potato balls, shrimp wontons, and even taiyaki (sweet cakes shaped like fish and filled with red bean paste).

Yummy! We were stuffed!

After dinner we watched a movie called "Subway 123" in Japanese. I think the English title is "The taking of Phelam 123" and is a kind of action / hostage / terror / police movie. Actually, although I don't like action movies, this one was pretty cool. It stars John Travolta (as the bad guy) and Denzel Washington (as the good guy) and a few other famous faces appear too (James Gandolfini and Luis Guzman).

Apparently (to the clever people out there who review movies) the new film doesn't even slightly compare to the original and starred some "bland, overweight, overpaid actors", however, I thought there were some exciting moments.


  1. Yummy! We had kushikatsu, too, this Monday! Are you taking 2 days off?!

  2. I had a nice 5-day holiday but had to go back to work on Thursday and Friday... That's ok, it was a very short work week ;)
