Tonkatsu – Japanese Pork Cutlet

with 4 comments


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.

Homemade, February 2011 in Vienna, Austria

I was in Japan last year and brought this small can of matcha from Uji, the ancient city that has been famous for green tea cultivation since centuries, after attending a tea ceremony.

Here’s an animation video on how to prepare matcha: http://www.ippodo-tea.co.jp/tea/matcha_01.html

*This matcha latte is with soy milk and muscovado sugar.

Wagashi

Tenmaya, March 2009 in Vienna, Austria

Wagashi (和菓子) is a traditional Japanese confectionery, often made of red bean paste or/and mochi (rice cake), and served with tea.

These are very basic ones, though.  In Japan there are many wagashi shops that run for generations and make wagashi as a work of art.

Hotategai and Amaebi Sushi

leave a comment »

Tenmaya, March 2009 in Vienna, Austria

They are both raw of course: Hotategai (scallop) and Amaebi (sweet shrimp) are my two favorite nigiri sushi. I’m so happy to be able to have them in Vienna.

This Japanese restaurant in the first district in Vienna is very popular also among Japanese people. Japanese sushi chef, Japanese waitresses, Japanese customers sitting next to you…in here, you don’t feel like in Vienna anymore.
