€Data
This lively neigh-
borhood shop does a
brisk business both
day and night, so it
might be a good idea
to avoid peak lunch
and dinner hours if
you don't want to
wait. In addition to
doing excellent
tonkatsu, in both
regular and premium
grades, the kitchen
also turns out deep-
fried prawns, oys-
ters, fish and
chicken. One of the
most popular items
is a combo platter
of menchi-katsu
(ground-pork pat-
ties) and cro-
quettes.

The Mochi-buta rosu
(Y1350) features a
fatty cutlet made
from mochi-buta
pork, a hybrid breed
developed in Tohoku
for its superior
flavor. The breading
is a medium golden
brown, slightly
thick and soft in
texture rather than
crunchy.

Our waitress sug-
gested trying it
with coarse salt,
and the cutlet
turned out to be
extremely succulent
and tasty without
the usual tonkatsu
sauce. The shredded
cabbage is livened
up with a touch of
the goma-dare (sesa-
me dressing) on the
counter. Drinks
include budget wines
by the glass as well
as beer by the bot-
tle.
