If you love katzu (crispy deep fried pork cutlets breaded in panko) you have to try this Tokyo institution in the Omote-Sando area. Just a short walk from the Omote-Sando metro stop, down some very pretty alleys, you will find this large, 60s-70s style building. The entrance leads to a counter seating area, followed by a large dining room with tables. The interior is an appealing throwback to times gone by. The food is excellent; you will get katzu, rice and soup, as well as cabbage, grated radish and plenty of sauces. The meal will end with a small gelato and tea. There are select cuts of pork on offer in limited quantities, but standard issue varieties are just as delicious. The restaurant is set in a lovely neighborhood for strolling and shopping and is a ten minute walk from Shibuya, so it’s perfect as an after dinner sightseeing walk.
