Fantastic pork cutlet. I had the leaner cut and my friends had the loin. Both were excellent. Cannot tell if they’re just really good cuts of meat or if they’re cooked perfectly but either way it’s very good. Would go back.

Chibi-chan's birth anniversary will be in Kyoto. What do you want for lunch? When I asked, "Tonkatsu". I love it. So, I chose this one that was highly rated on Tabelog. When I arrived at the store at 11:40, there were two groups of customers ahead of me. There are only 2 table seats...
