TOKYO | Katsukura is considered by many to serve some the best tonkatsu in Kyoto, and thankfully for visitors to Tokyo, there are branches in this city too. The Shinjuku Katsukura is located on the 14th floor of the Takashimaya Department Store, and offers the same menu you’ll find elsewhere in the country.

Whether you go for the rosu (loin) or hire (fillet), you’ll be guaranteed some of the finest pork, juicy on the inside and crumbed to perfection, not at all oily on the outside. For us, the rosu is the way to go. It’s slightly cheaper than the hire and more popular as the fat simply melts in your mouth, providing a juicier option than the hire. Tonkatsu sets feature rice, unlimited cabbage and miso. The tonkatsu sauce here isn’t the usual tonkatsu sauce but rather you’re provided with a choice between sweet and chilli sauces – both very tasty. The salad dressing is a really punchy yuzu sauce that’s one of the best salad dressings we have tried at a tonkatsu spot.

Katsukura can get busy during peak times, so try and visit off peak if you can. Even if you don’t have time for a sit down visit, we highly recommend popping in and grabbing a few bottles of that fantastic yuzu salad dressing to take home with you.
