It was an impromptu trip to have a tonkatsu dinner..especially when we were all smelly and sweaty from the badminton game! Probably the worst looking people in the restaurant..but when craving calls…even smelly and sweaty outlooks can’t stop it!
The first time I tried Tonkatsu was at One Utama, which was quite good but couldn’t beat the one I had in Kyoto. This was my second time to Tonkatsu, but a newly opened branch near home. I was so famished after a lengthy 2 hour game that when this blended radish came, it disappeared in an instant!
Hurrah! My food arrived soon after. And boy…I was quite surprised how the tonkatsu served here was a lot nicer than the one in One Utama. Now this one could match up near the one in Kyoto but of course the lacking part which would be hard to change here is the quality of our pork. Other than that, the cooking was stellar!
A close view of the juicylicious pork loin half dipped with the sweetened sauce. Okay…move aside, I am ready to gobble!!!
The other side was the pork belly which you can clearly see the 3 layers from the sliced pork from here. And I love the brown rice here…healthy plump and nutritious! Oh yea, they are refillable as well. Something Malaysians love to hear!
The miso soup was also really good. Full of flavours and not too salty. Yummmmmsss.
Oh yea the thinly sliced cabbages, full of freshness and water which would go so amazing with the sesame dressing, once poured…the waters from the cabbage would all be absorbed into the sesame dressing. Best way part of all….refillable too! This was my second serving of cabbages. No harm to eat more vegs 🙂
Each set cost about RM30 which personally, is worth it. The food is good and you will leave the place feeling so satisfied and full.
I’ll be back soon when my pocket is a little full for a good meal treat!
