Breaded pork you dip in a special sauce with Japanese-style soup stock


This tonkatsu (breaded pork cutlet) restaurant is located near Kyoto Shiyakusho-mae Station.
You go through the wooden gate along the main street and walk a little on the stone paving to reach the restaurant. The first floor has tables and counter seats, while the second floor has tatami mat rooms. With a total seating capacity for 105 customers, this restaurant can accommodate large groups. The secret to the deliciousness of the breaded pork is the special sauce. With bonito stock a...morend kelp stock, the sauce is rich but has a light flavor. It brings out the sweet flavor of the pork.

Breaded pork set meals
1Must Eat !
Breaded pork set meals / ¥1,200
The pork is tender while the outside is crispy.
There is little fat, so it does not feel heavy at all. To eat, we recommend that you dip the breaded pork in the special sauce to about half way up.
*Comes with rice, miso soup, and pickled vegetables.
2Must Eat !
Katsudon / ¥1,000
Large pieces of tonkatsu are topped on the rice. The special sauce is a little on the stronger side, and matches well with rice.
*Comes with miso soup and pickled vegetables.
Oriental mustard
3Let's Try !
Oriental mustard / Free
This condiment is free when you order set meals or katsudon. It is a little spicy, and brings out the good flavor of breaded pork. It is too spicy if you use too much; an amount the size of a grain of rice is just the right amount.
Take Out
4Let's Try !
Take Out / ¥900
Some of the items are available for take-out. We recommend this option if you do not have much time or if the restaurant is full. Ask a staff member which items are available for take-out.
