I never did enjoy tonkatsu but this time, food at Tonkatsu Maisen at Omotesando Hills won me over. The batter was the right crispness and the tonkatsu was not oily. The meat was tender and juicy. Our family of 5 started our walk from Harajuku station and walked up the steep Omotesando Hills, huffing from breathlessness and had sore calves and feet but it was worth the trip. English menu with photos were a sure relief. This being the flagship store, they retained the old restaurant interior which gave a feeling of tranquility to enjoy your meal in contrast with the bustling neighborhood famed for shopping. We ate again at another of their outlets in Shibuya on the eve of our departure. Food quality was consistent but the flagship store at Omotesando Hills is the ultimate.
