My 10 favourite foods – #10

Last but not least, Tonkatsu!

Ton means Pork, Katsu is the Japanised word for cutlet! this is fried pork, the cover is panko and not breadcrumbs which makes it lighter.

It usually comes with shredded cabbage, and you use a brown sauce as well as ponzu for the cabbage, sometimes, you may crush sesame and mix with a sauce of your choice

this is a filling menu as it comes with miso soup and rice on top of the rest but if you go to a nice restaurant, it can be delicious

I have 2 places that I like

  • one is on the restaurant floor of Isetan in Shinjuku
  • the other is on 2F of atre in Ueno Station, entrance via escalator inside the main hall of the station and is from Kyoto – called katsukura, this is my favourite!
