Honolulu has many restaurants that at first glance might intimidate a mainland visitor. The menu items sound unfamiliar and even the name on the door doesn't compute. Set that aside for a moment and follow along. Tonkatsu is a Japanese style pork cutlet that's breaded and fried much like a schnitzel. They're usually served sliced with an accompanying sauce. Meanwhile Ginza is an upscale shopping district near Tokyo and Ginza Bairin is an old school tonkatsu house within that district. It's known for using only the best meat and serving a light, flavorful product. We found the Hawaiian version to be most welcoming and a great find in the urban maze of Waikiki.
