Kuromon Furusato (Kuromon Ichiba Market): Osaka 2017
Snacks abound at the Kuromon Ichiba Market and Kuromon Furusato is a stall where you can find an endless supply of deep-fried foods.
Each piece is about 100円. Just point at the item that you want, pay them, and they’ll toss it into the fryer for you. The thing to keep in mind is that the freshly fried food will come out super hot on the outside. But if you pick a thick piece of food, the inside might not be fully heated. It’s best to pick something that’s thinner so the whole thing is cooked throughout.
We picked a shrimp and fishcake to try. Both came out hot and oily (so it’s a bit difficult to eat while you’re standing in the market). Although both were pre-cooked, they were cold so the vendor re-fried them but the shrimp was thicker so it really only got hot on the outside. The fishcake was a better option because it was thinner and was heated up all the way through.
