BOGO Katsu Today and Tomorrow at Yushi

Yushi (on 47th btw Park+Lex) is at it again, folks. When word came out about their new baked chicken katsu, it was the right news at the right time for me. I love katsu, it’s Japanese fried goodness, but sometimes I can’t afford to eat something so heavy that only ends in a food coma. My boss has been frowning on my food comas of late. I understand that baked katsu is a little wrong, a little disrespectful to the Katsu gods, but Yushi basks on the healthier side of life and they wanted to bring it on over. And since sharing is caring, Yushi is offering buy one, get one today and tomorrow!

I take the plunge, after the jump…

King Curry Katsu

When I first looked for the new special on the hot bar, it was nowhere to be found. Luckily for me, that meant getting a fresh box from the back. And that box was nearly half-filled with the chicken katsu! It lays on a small bed of white rice, and for the most part, that’s it. The chicken itself was cooked nicely, moist inside while crunchy outside from the panko, with barely any seasoning. I did find myself dipping almost every bite into the sauces, more for their addictive flavor than for moisture. Did I miss the greasy fried goodness? Yes, but I ended up full, it hit my katsu craving, and no coma to speak of. At $9.95, it’s pricey for katsu with rice, but it’s a good size piece of chicken for your money.

Now for the fine print… To cash in on the “buy one, get one” offer, you need to printout this post and bring it in to the store. Limit one per person.  No cash equivalent and no other discounts (such as My Yushi points) can be used in conjunction with the offer. Good at both the Midtown and Downtown location until 3pm this afternoon and tomorrow (11/19).  What are you waiting for?!

    I hate being such a snob sometimes, but Yushi isn’t even a Japanese name or word. It’s not that I don’t think non-Japanese ppl can’t make good katsu – tis not it at all. But you know, at least pick a proper name.

  • I think it was intentional, like they meant it as “Yu shee? Non-Japanese people can make reery good Japanese food!”
