TORONTO — On Dundas Street West, you can find Gushi, which is the sole Japanese street food stall in the city.
Right now, Gushi’s owner Shinji-Yamaguchi is working on a new menu for what’s quickly becoming a Toronto favourite and it’ll include a few interesting items.
Gushi now serves Karaage Chicken with tomato sauce, cheese and basil $7.00 as a taste collaboration of Japanese-style Karaage and Western-style sauces. Gushi also serve a new seventeen-piece Karaage box $25.00, which is good steal for Christmas.

Gushi’s Karaage is like a fried chicken, and you can taste its bold flavour in its crispy and juicy shell. Juiciness is one of the main and best characteristic of Gushi’s Karaage. The chicken Gushi uses is also fresher than most other food stall, so it’s safer and tastier than any other outdoor eatery in Toronto.
Shinji-Yamaguchi, Gushi’s owner, is making an effort to serve many kinds of Karaage, so Gushi’s menu is renewed every three or four months. He tries to make his menu so that it will be accepted by Canadians, and it is!

“It is wonderful point of Gushi that we can enjoy Japanese food with reasonable prices, in spite that most Japanese food is expensive in Toronto,” Seigo-Azuma, who works at Gushi, said.
The stall’s owner Shinji echoed this feeling when we spoke to him.
“I want to make Gushi a leader of Japanese food in Toronto”, Shinji-Yamaguchi said.
