                            Discover OITA 2                                       

Did you enjoy your summer vacation and discover some good points about your hometown? Oita has many different kinds of local delicacies and today I will tell you about some of them such as Fugu, Sekiaji Sekisaba, Hita yakisoba, Beppu reimen .

As you know, the foods in Oita are very nice and rich. I especially love kara-age, otherwise known as Japanese fried chicken. There are many kara-age shops in Nakatsu and Usa city. A notable feature of these shops is they are for takeout only. You can enjoy eating kara-age at home with family or friends.

The origin and spread of kara-age is as follows. Over 50 years ago, there was a Chinese restaurant called Rairaiken in Usa city. One day the owner was requested to make a new chicken dish by a local farmer. Chicken was in surplus at the time. He developed a new dish he cooked by chicken with garlic, ginger, and soy sauce, and fried it. It became very popular with his customers.

Syosuke was a SAKE bar in front of that restaurant. The bar owner asked to teach him the kara-age recipe. He answered “Yes”. It soon became very popular with Syosuke’s cusomers too. But because of poverty, only a small percentage could afford the dish at the time.

A few years later Syosuke's owner opened a takeout kara-age shop . That was not expensive so many people could afford it. Kara-age became a popular food in Usa and before long many other kara-age shops started popping up everywhere including Nakatsu city.This is why Usa city is called the birth place of kara-age. Usa kara-age is delicious and reasonable. I love it.

Everyone、I ‘d like you to find and introduce a speciality or story about Oita.
