“Best miso-katsu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2012 via mobile

I have totally fallen for Yabaton since my first visit 6 years ago. Till now, every single of my experiences there has been fully satisfied: food, service, and everything. Crunchy outside; tenderly juicy inside, esp my favorite Teppan Hire Katsu!! Really tasty!!

“Great fried pork over rice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2011

Had a great meal at Yabaton in the Nagoya train station. The place was packed, with a line out the door. I had fried pork that had been breaded and deep-fried and coated in a kind of Miso BBQ sauce over rice. It came with shredded cabbage and pickles on the side. It was satisfying and tasty. About 1200 yen. Service was efficient. I would go again.

“Nagoya's Famous Miso-Katsu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2011

Nagoya is famous for Miso-katsu which differs from the traditional “Ton-katsu” as the sauce is sweet and miso based as its name suggests. Pork deep-fried in breadcrumbs, dipped in hot miso sauce and served with shredded cabbage and rice. And oh yes, miso soup. You can order just the Miso-katsu without the rice and the works but I would say that the starchiness of the rice balances well with the sweetness of the dish. Yabaton is the place to go for this popular meal. And knowing how small the restaurants in Japan can be, especially for an outlet at the train station, this was pretty big seeing as it can seat 73 people. This is known as the Yabaton Meitetsu Nagoya Train Station Store. Place was clean and environment was nice. Service was good and fast. Portion was enormous. Another delectable dish that can only be found in Nagoya is the Cochin chicken which they serve with Oyako Don in this restaurant too. Therefore, if you are going with a friend, I suggest ordering different sets so that you will be able to share and try a variety of food items. This restaurant is open from 11am to 11pm. Don't miss dining there if you are in Nagoya.

“Very Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2010

The tonkatsu is so good. You should try the Nagoya style, with the miso sauce. The fried pork is so crunchy on the outside and very juicy on the inside.

I can't wait to go back to Nagoya and try this again.
