Beef cutlet served in only 30 seconds offers the taste of real quality meet
Kyoto Katsugyu is famous for offering beef cutlets of the highest quality in its unique style and attracts beef lovers from inside and outside of Kyoto. Katsugyu keeps the natural taste of fresh wagyu and sirloin beef by deep-frying them in a high temperature for a very short time (only in 30 seconds!). In this way, crispy coating contains juice and tenderness of the beef inside and makes the cutlet even fleshier. The original way of eating beef cutlets with wasabi (green horseradish paste) gives you the flavour you have never experienced. Conveniently located close to the Kyoto Station, the restaurant is often packed with a mixture of people, smiling families, active youngsters, relaxed businessmen as well as happy couples. All of them have common air of excitement – I want to eat really good beef!
Fried Sirloin Cutlet Kyotama ZEN / ￥1,490
A bite of this cutlet surprises you by the amazing contrast between the juicy beef and crispy coating. You can enjoy the cutlet in many ways with a variety of seasonings (soy source with wasabi, Japanese pepper and salt as well as Worcester and curry sources). It is also best-matched with the original miso soup of the side dish, which refreshes your mouth.
Kyoto Style Beef Cutlet on Rice / ￥1,458
This cutlet on rice is quite unique in having beef as its main portion while cutlets in other restaurants usually have pork meat. However, what makes the dish a special one is its locally-grown ingredients used, Kujo negi (green onion) and sweet Japanese pepper. A trio of crispy cutlets, rice with sweet Japanese pepper sauce and crunchy Kujo negi gives you a refreshing appetite and makes you addictive to it.
Soft Boiled Egg Tempura / ￥129
A melting egg is hidden in a crispy tempura ball. You are advised to break the ball first, dip your cutlet in the egg, add curry sauce, and finally put the cutlet on the rice to make your original rice bowl. The egg makes the curry milder and sweeter, matching nicely with rice with boiled barley. What an entertainment !
How to Order
You can choose your desired doneness of your beef from medium-rare and well-done. The price differs depending on the amount of rice ordered.
