Walked by this tiny little Tonkatsu spot... couldn't see inside and I'm positive very few foreigners have ventured into this residential neighborhood spot... was abit worried about what kind of reaction I'd get so walk on by.
But just couldn't resist the 650yen Service Time "Tonkatsu Teishoku" special.
Greeted with a very friendly smile from the waitress and hot tea.
My view at the counter... 4 goldfish.
The interior was such a cozy old skool Japan... little metal sink to wash your hands.
It was actually quite alot of food...
Loved the heavy flavored miso soup... yum. Almost tasted like Tonjiru.
Sweet daikon pickle, white salty daikon and the seasoned carrot tasted a bit stinky.
The Tonkatsu was as thin as my chopsticks and a bit salty... I guess the chef likes to keep things extremely flavorful.
And as I finished up the kind waitress gave me a little chocolate ice cream Pino. Its a nice little spot and the chef was all blinged out with lots of gold. I might be back someday soon as I've become a regular at Hine Bakery around the corner.
