Must-eat Tonkatsu

Is the Long Queue worth it? Definitely is one of the good tonkatsu restaurant during our visit to Japan. The pork is juicy and very tender, definitely live up to the famous name.

My wife was not thrilled, since deep-fried anything has little appeal to her, and while the tonkatsu was indeed delicious, it certainly was heavy on the breading, and light on the meat. It also looked identical to every piece of tonkatsu I saw all over Japan. A curious extra at the restaurant is all the cabbage you can eat.
