Famous Japanese pork cutlet restaurant

There are a lot of dish that called cutlet in the world.

Japanese style culet called tonkatsu is using pork and loved by many Japanese.

Tonkatsu is generally served with shredded cabbage. It is most commonly eaten with a type of thick Worcestershire sauce called tonkatsu sauce and karashi (mustard).

You can eat such wonderful Japanese meal in Ueno area.

I ordered loin tonkatsu set at that time.

This set includes cup of rice, miso soup with clams, tonkatsu Japanese seasonal pickles, and cup of tea.

It tastes so juicy and clunky that I could not stop eating them!!!

When I finished eating, I was satisfied with and I was in a dream.

Some Japanese athletes eat tonkatsu for their good luck, because katsu has double meaning that ‘cutlet’ and ‘to win(勝つkatsu)’.

So tonkatsu is something to bring good luck in Japan.
