From a delicately battered piece of tempura to a crispy slab of tonkatsu, Japan is a wonderland when it comes to fried food. In this episode of Gochi Gang, Reina sets out to explore the heart of Japanese fried fare—and there's no better companion than former Man v. Food star Adam Richman. Between bites of pork cutlet, Adam and Reina discuss everything from Japanese puns and good-luck rituals to Adam's own routine before heading into food competitions. But before Reina fills up on tonkatsu, she's heading to Secchu Yokota for an unforgettable tempura experience with chef Atsushi Yokota. From the origins of batter frying in Japan, to the lesser-known tradition of eating KFC on Christmas, Reina is about to embark on the ultimate Japanese fried food adventure.
