Story & Recommendation
Tonkatsu full of flavor served in a Kyoto-like setting
Katsukura is a restaurant that serves tonkatsu made with carefully selected ingredients from all over Japan in a beautifully decorated space inspired by a Kyoto machiya (traditional townhouse). The meat for tonkatsu can be selected from several kinds of high-quality Japanese brand pork. The cooking method that maximizes the original taste of the meat and the carefully selected accompaniments and original sauces create a great synergistic effect. Another appeal of Katsukura is that it is designed to be enjoyed with all five senses. Katsukura values the concept of “beauty” included in the kanji of the Japanese word for “delicious” and this can be seen in both the interior design and the dishes. For example, the interior of the renovated old Kyoto townhouse is completed with traditional earthen walls as in the past, and decorated with “Saga” traditional masks made in Kyoto, along with fragrant incense. In addition, new flowers are arranged every week by a long-established florist, allowing visitors to perceive the changes of the season. The presentation of the dishes is also designed to be savored with all five senses. Tonkatsu is served on a wire mesh instead of directly on a plate. This ensures that the freshly fried texture lasts. Hand-knitted in Kyoto, this wire mesh is like a work of art. The vessels are also handmade by Japanese craftsmen, demonstrating Katsukura’s commitment to beauty. Try the freshly fried tonkatsu, which is made with the highest attention to meat quality, in a Kyoto-like atmosphere. [Owner's comment] Please try our rare and high-quality pork, “Kinkaton”, also called the “Rare Pork”. Our hideaway restaurant and friendly staff are waiting for you!
