Deep Fried BC Spotted Prawns with Sea Salt and more...at Izakaya-Ju
Tonight, before game 3 of the NBA finals, my son and I had a quick bite at Izakaya-Ju. In addition to the usual favorites of Yakitoris ( skin, leg meat, wings, medium rare liver, hearts...) and Chicken Teriyaki Burgers, we also ordered two new items. Chopped raw Octopus in wasabi ( good and interesting ) and Deep fried BC Spotted prawns with sea salt ( damn delicious and great value at $6 for 5 prawns! )
BTW, the burger was as stunning as before!
One time I went and ordered the prawns (I think it was December) and they were quite .. mushy. Could it be the season?? Since then I just associate the prawns to that texture .. and thus not ordered. Should I try again?..
You say prawns -- how big is big?
Also, their grilled stuff includes chicken hearts on the menu!!??
Our prawns were a 'little' mushy as well. However, in our case its understandable since its Sunday!! ( Worst time to have Japanese seafood is Sunday and Monday!! ) Size is pretty big. Stretched out size, head to tail is as long as a fountain pen! Mushiness was compensated by the crispy and crunchy head, shell and tail, which I consumed totally!
