This is the place I come to without even thinking when I feel the urge to eat 'tonkatsu' (deep fried breaded pork cutlet). As far as I'm concerned this place has perfected the art of deep frying. They fry the pork with the utmost care and deliberation, just enough so that the meat loses its pink color but no more, and serve up white meat with plenty of meat juices and an overflow of flavor. Some places get the tonkatsu right but are let down by the quality of the rice, but not this place. Here, everything's delicious - from the rice down to the 'tsukemono' (Japanese pickled vegetables) and red miso soup served as side dishes. The service is also first-class - the attentive staff are always super-quick to notice when your complimentary side dish of raw cabbage, or glass of Japanese tea has become empty, and rush over to replenish it immediately.
