Tonkatsu originated in Japan in the 19th century.
Tonkatsu ( pork cutlet rice or chu pah fun) is a dish which consists of a deep fried breaded pork cutlet, served as a single dish with plain rice or multi-coloured rice, miso soup and shredded cabbage.
As i am not so much of a pork eater, the temptation to try it, was pushed aside,
until a rave review by ILikeToEatLah .
I ordered a Jumbo Hire Katsu set and a Potato Salad to share with my wife.
The big chunk of tenderized pork fillet (with some layers of fats in between the meat) is coated with bread crumbs and then deep fried.
It tasted simple and clean with just pepper and salt as flavoring-crispy on the outer crust,
tender and moist on the inside-thumbs up !
Drenched the shredded cabbage with karashi (mustard) sauce for extra flavor.
Miso soup is refillable, too.
Michelle's order- a Prawns (generously sized sweet and succulent) and Rosu (pork loin ) Katsu set and Mike's order-a Mameton set.
Overall it was a fulfilling and satisfying meal but a bit expensive.
