BANGKOK | Tonkatsu Maisen, one of Japan’s best places to eat tonkatsu, has several outlets in Bangkok. Purveyors of tonkatsu since 1965, Maisen is known for its high quality ingredients and perfectly balanced flavours.
The menu in Bangkok broadly follows the Japanese menu. All of the signature items are here, the main difference being that the kurobuta pork is sourced locally, rather than from Kagoshima, Japan.
Choose your cut of meat (pork loin, pork tenderloin, chicken) and it comes out with a wonderfully buttery, crispy coating. Katsu sets are served with Maisen’’’s special tonkatsu sauce, a bowl of rice, shredded cabbage, Tonjiru (pork miso soup), and pickles.
If it’s just a snack you’re after, grab a sando to go. There’s chicken, pork, and shrimp to choose from.
