The consistency of the dough is applied differently depending on the texture of the ingredients and then deep-frying it quickly at a high temperature to bring out the unique texture and flavor of the ingredients It's a feature. âOitadaki,â which captures the feeling of tempura by mixing large pieces of cucumber with a spicy sauce, is also a popular menu item.

âKuishinboâ is an izakaya run by chefs representing Tsuji cuisine in Japan. It has few draft beer filters and highball manufacturing machines, which are rare in Korea, so it is a favorite of enthusiasts. The signature menu, âEdamame tempura,â pea is peeled, finely ground, then softly deep-fried by adding fresh cream and sugar. If you dip the Himalayan rock salt that comes with it, the sweet flavor of edamame blends pleasantly with the salty flavor of salt. I also like âyakitori,â a Japanese-style yakitori made by grilling meat and vegetables with bijangtan, which is recognized as the best charcoal for grilling in Japan. The most popular are the âleg meat,â which contains moist juice, and the âmintong â part, which has an attractive, chewy texture. They have a second branch in Garosu-gil and a third in Cheongdam-dong.
