Not everything in Ginza has to be chic and sleek. Yabaton sells miso-katsu, a very workmanlike take on tonkatsu (deep-fried, crumbed pork cutlet) that’s slathered in miso sauce. Waraji-tonkatsu is a big-as-your-head flattened cutlet, or you can try kani-korokke (crab croquettes). Yabaton-salada (boiled pork with miso sesame sauce over vegetables) is kinda sorta good for you. Look for the pig wearing a sumō wrestler’s apron, one block west of Shōwa-dōri.
