On our last evening in Osaka, we finally managed to meet up with one of my favorite Food Bloggers, Kat and her husband Satoshi. Over the years I've seen blogs come and go, I really do miss many of them. But Kat has been a constant with me since probably late 2007 and has been blogging as many years as I. We'd come close to meeting up a few times, but timing and scheduled were never in synch. So finally, the Missus and I got to meet the both of them. We met them at the local Don Quixote had some snacks and coffee and basically strolled around and chatted.....the thing about knowing each other in the bloggas - sphere is that there was a wonderful familiarity to the whole thing.
When dinner came along, we just popped into this Kushiage shop, named Gokakuya.
First rule of Kushikatsu...."no double dipping"!
Satoshi did an amazing job of calling back our orders.....the Missus loved the sauce.
You can read about the whole meal in Kat's blog post.
Those fried chicken skins were really great.
The fried whale....which tasted like very bitter "chiai" - fish bloodline. I'll pass on this in the future.
It was a great time thanks to Kat and Satoshi!

Kat and Satoshi went crazy on the omiyage....we left laden down with gifts.....
Thanks so much guys! It was such a pleasure!
