I don't usually write reviews but this family-run tonkatsu restaurant was absolutely delicious. The sauce is house made and the pork chops were crunchy and juicy as I bit into each piece. It was so good that I ordered the fried oysters as well (to my waistline's regret).


This tonkatsu restaurant is located a 1-minute walk from Yawata-mae Station on the Eizan Electric Railway Kurama Line. It is located about 100m west of Kitashirakawa-dori heading north and just past Takaragaike-dori.
Mainly pork cutlet set meal, fillet cutlet set meal, fried shrimp, fried vegetable roll, fried oyster, fried squid, fried conger conger, and limited to 7 types of fried foods. Other rice bowl dishes include katsudon. Drinks are only beer and sake.
The restaurant is run by a family of three staff members: the owner, the landlady, and his daughter. Although it is a very small restaurant, it quickly fills up with regular customers.
Most of our customers order the "Tonkatsu Set Meal". The large pork cutlets are breaded and fried right in front of you after your order is placed. The large pork cutlet is dripping with meat juices, and the more you bite into it, the more delicious it becomes. The size of the tonkatsu varies, but even if it's small, consider yourself unlucky. What's more, it comes with a hearty amount of vegetables, red soup stock, pickled vegetables, and free refills of rice for an amazing price of 1,200 yen (tax included).
Open for 3 hours at lunchtime and 2.5 hours at night, closed on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
There are 9 counter seats and 4 4-person table seats, which can accommodate 25 people.
There is a parking lot around the store, and I think it can accommodate more than 20 cars.
It seems that there are many local customers who place orders over the phone in advance and come pick them up. For takeout, there is a ¥100 container fee. Payment is by cash only.
It's a restaurant that only serves fried foods, but it's a delicious pork cutlet restaurant that you'll want to go to at least once a month, if not every week.

I have reposted the content I posted in September 2020 because it disappeared due to a bug.
