|Nelson: Mr. Tonkatsu serves Tonkatsu. Obvious, right? This restaurant is similar to what Saboten in Japan does. We start with the grind your own sesame. This is a great idea for customers to do something while they wait for the food to be served. It let's out an intoxicating aroma that gets you hungry for the main meal. This one wasn't as fragrant as the one in Japan though. Maybe because there was no black sesame?|
|We had an appetizer of crispy chicken things ($5.5) which was deep fried nicely.|
|This is the pork loin katsu curry ($14.5). I was disappointed that the curry sauce was chunky and not smooth. I didn't like it and I don't know if that was intentional or not. Maybe it's onion that are dissolved in there?|
I splurged and spent an extra dollar for the pork tenderloin instead of the pork loin for the Original Tonkatsu Set ($13). The crisp was ok, but I think it could have been better. The upgraded meat was more tender and consistent texture, but I didn't think it was that much of an upgrade from loin that I tasted from the curry.
Tonkatsu is one of my favourite foods, so I enjoyed it. It wasn't as good as Japan, but that's not surprising.
