A Different Way of Eating Shrimp on Rice

Not feeling up to your usual tempura or ebi furai?  Well, try this number from Ebi Tempura Japanese Grill.

This is an Ebi Hamburg Katsudon.  As it’s name suggests, it’s a breaded and deep-fried patty made of ground shrimp (hamburg – or “burger” as the Japanese are wont to call it) on rice with the dashi-and-spring-onion sauce used for katsudon. Save for the breading, it’s pretty much solid shrimp all the way through and it works well with both the sauce and the rice to make a satisfying meal.

It’s not like dining at Nobu or (locally) at Umu, but it hits the spot where it counts.
