6. Beet Home Fries

This started out during family meal at Uchi. I was annoyed that the walk-in wasn't clean and organized; it was my partner Moto's turn to cook family meal, so I gave him whatever random stuff was edible from the fridge. He asked me what to do with the roasted beets, and I suggested he fry them karaage-style and serve them with Kewpie [mayo], togarashi, and green onion, which is standard for a lot of Japanese junk food. That’s how the Beet Home Fries were born, and now they’re one of our signature dishes at East Side King.
