Agezuki Description

Located in the heart of Tokyo, Agezuki is a hidden gem that offers an unforgettable dining experience. Specializing in the art of tonkatsu, this restaurant has been recognized as one of the top 100 tonkatsu restaurants in Japan. What sets Agezuki apart is their commitment to using the finest ingredients, particularly their carefully selected pork from Nagata Farms in Miyazaki Prefecture.

The pork at Agezuki is truly exceptional. The meat is tender, juicy, and bursting with flavor, thanks to the rich marbling and meticulous aging process. The chefs at Agezuki take great pride in their craft, ensuring that each piece of tonkatsu is perfectly fried to achieve a crispy golden exterior while maintaining the succulent juiciness inside.

The restaurant's interior is cozy and inviting, with a counter seating arrangement that allows guests to witness the skilled chefs in action. The attention to detail extends to the drink menu as well, with a selection of Japanese sake that perfectly complements the tonkatsu. Whether you're a tonkatsu aficionado or simply looking for a memorable dining experience, Agezuki is a must-visit destination for lovers of Japanese cuisine.

There are are only 2 tonkatsu restaurant in Japan listed in Michelin Guide. One is katsuzen at Ginza at barney's new york building. The other one is this one Agezuki. They have english menu. This was the most tender pork i ever had in my life. They use slow cook process so it takes some time.... recommend to go weekday at night. Less que...

I want to start by saying that I came to this restaurant with Japanese friends and we also made a reservation in advanced so the customer service wasn’t bad.

The pork itself was really juicy, perfectly salted and tender. The panko for this one is bigger than what you would normally find for tonkatsu but it’s so light at the same time. I ordered the rosu katsu which is an oilier and a cut that has more fat so I don’t recommend you eat this often but it is a nice splurge every once in a while. The rice was also perfectly cooked and soft without being mushy.

One of the highlights of this was the miso soup which came with a lot of clams. I was not able to finish it unfortunately because I got very full from the tonkatsu and the cabbage alone.

This is definitely a nice place to treat yourself but I understand that I avoided some problems mentioned by other people (they don’t like foreign customers, the customer service being bad, long line plus long wait for the food etc) by coming here with my Japanese friends and making a reservation.

This might be my favorite tonkatsu place in Tokyo. There is usually a line, but they do take reservations. The pork is cooked very slow, so it takes some time, but the meat is so tender. Totally worth it.

I went back to this restaurant for the first time in a long time to try some tonkatsu for Sunday lunch and was very impressed. Arrived around 11:45. As I was waiting at the bottom of the stairs, a female clerk came out from inside and said that the restaurant was full at the moment...

I feel like the floor, wallpaper, and lighting have changed, but I'm not sure. I feel like the lunch prices have gone up a bit. #Kagurazaka #Iidabashi #Ushigome Kagurazaka #Pork cutlet #Loin cutlet set meal #Rice #Miso soup #Oshinko #Potato salad...

I had the Kirishima SPF pork loin cutlet set meal✨It was so flavorful and delicious that I didn't even need salt. We lined up at 11:20, 10 minutes before the store opened (if there aren't enough people, we'll have to start lining up again), and the food arrived...
