Everyone has got their plate of tonkatsu (deep-fried breaded pork cutlet) and they look really yummy. The outlet, which originate from Tokyo Ginza, has a strong japanese ambience, from its simple wooden chairs to its deco.
It operates with a fast-food concept ie. queue up to place order for your food, place the number stand on your table and the waiter will serve the food when ready. During dinner time, the restaurant, which is not small, is packed. So, the best thing you could do is, get 1 person to find a seat in the restaurant while the other queue up to place food order.
However, I gotten give the delicious tonkatsu a miss this time round as I wasn't feeling too hungry for the pork fillet. Instead, I ordered a potato salad and a croquette.
I always love japanese potato salad and this one looks simply "pretty" and yummy. Loves the pieces of potatoes and carrot bits.
The brown sauce at the background was meant for the croquette. Except that the croquette was a little too oily and a little costly ($2.50), I have no other complaints about it.
I shall be back again for its tonkatsu another time. Together with a cup of cold green tea, the meal costs $9.90.
