Lonely Planet review

You could order something else (fried shrimp, for example), but pretty much everyone else will be ordering the famous tonkatsu (breaded, deep-fried pork cutlets). There are different grades of pork on the menu, including prized kurobuta (black pig), but even the cheapest is melt-in-your-mouth divine. The restaurant is housed in an old public bathhouse. There’s also a takeaway window that serves delicious tonkatsu sando (sandwich).
