Tonkatsu – Japanese Pork Cutlet


Katsukura, September 2010 in Kyoto, Japan

Tonkatsu is breaded, deep-fried pork cutlet and a popular dish in Japan, often served with shredded cabbage. Katsukura on Kyoto’s busiest shopping district Kawaramachi (河原町) is the most famous restaurant for Tonkatsu in Kyoto. Each customer gets a mortar and pestle to grind fresh sesame and mix it into the special sauce for the pork.

Here in the picture is a tonkatsu menu with seasonal yuba (Tofu skin) rolls.
