Nadai Tonkatsu Katsukura Sanjo Honten ― Main store

- 名代とんかつ かつくら 三条本店 -
A store where you can enjoy light, healthy tonkatsu
Part of a tonkatsu chain focused on the Kansai area, this is the main store located in Kyoto. The entrance is very narrow, so be mindful you don’t miss it. The tonkatsu here are very light and healthy. On top of that, the umami of the pork is well-preserved and is quite delicious and easily digested. You can add sesame seeds to your own sauce before eating. In addition to pork, chicken, shrimp and other katsu are available, and you can also have it to-go in sandwich form. You can enjoy eating tonkatsu made to your own preferences.

The coating is crisp! The fatty meat within is wonderful and full of umami. The sauce should cover about half the tonkatsu.

If you can, you should definitely get a second helping. It’s polite to only ask for as much as you can eat.

Seasonal Desserts / ¥480 ~
Desserts change with the seasons. The picture is of a “roasted green tea parfait with seasonal fruit”. We recommend a cold, yet simple dessert after a meal.
How to Order

While we recommend the tonkatsu, there is also shrimp, creamed crab croquettes, etc. available for those who are not fans.

You can make your own sauce before the meal using the sauce and sesame seeds on top of your table. From the right to left are the light “tonkatsu sauce”, and the heavy “dark Soy sauce” (the far left is a yuzu dressing for cabbage.) Mash the sesame seeds; once they are properly pulverized, add your preferred sauce.

- Order Tips -
If you want another serving of barley rice, tell your server “Mugigohan no okawari wo kudasai.” ”Please give me another serving of barley rice”. *If you want more miso soup, say “Misoshiru”; for more cabbage, say ”Kyabetsu”.

While I liked the flavor of the regular sauce, I loved the mix of half tonkatsu sauce with half Soy sauce! The flavors balanced each other out well.
