Hello ( ̄Д ̄)ノ
This time, I was visiting a delicious-looking ramen shop in my hometown of Kyoto, but there was another delicious-looking pork cutlet shop right next to it, so I stopped by here as well (=゚ω゚)ノ

#Tonkatsu Pork Gorilla Kazuno Oji Taishido store
(15-7 Uzumasa Yasui Tsujinouchicho, Ukyo Ward, Kyoto City, Kyoto Prefecture)

It's a pork cutlet shop that has opened two shops next to Futora's.
After receiving the salt ramen, I left the restaurant and walked for 10 seconds (((っ・ω・)っ
When I looked at the store menu, I was intrigued by the great value lunch, so I went in for a hula(~ ˙ª˙ )~.

There are 3 2-person tables and 4 4-person tables.
The two-seater table can be moved, so it seems to be fine for six people.
I sit in an empty seat.
I checked the menu, and this time I ordered the Lunch Bechar 1060 yen from the lunch special.
For rice, I had a choice of white rice or barley rice, and I ordered barley.
Rice, miso soup, and cabbage are infinitely flexible (/`・ω・)
I couldn't find any seasonings on the table, but they brought them to me before the food was delivered.
Sauce, ponzu sauce, sesame sauce, mustard, and pickles.
And the sesame seeds in a mortar came with it.
Lately, it's been like this everywhere due to measures against lickers ┐(´-д-`)┌
As I was waiting for the sesame seeds...

⚫️Lunch Bechar 1060 yen

It's here, fillet cutlet, minced green perilla cutlet, onion croquette, lots of cabbage, and a small bowl of cooked rice.
It comes with barley rice and miso soup.
When you drop the mustard into the sauce and fry the fillet cutlet, the batter is crispy and the meat is tender.
The green shiso minced cutlet has a nice green shiso flavor, and I think ponzu sauce would go well with it! ?
The croquette also has the sweetness of the onions, and goes well with the rice.
But the most delicious thing was...
Cabbage ♡
It was cut into very thin pieces and tasted fresh.
Because it was cut into thin strips, it had a very light texture, and I could eat it easily with the sesame dressing.
The cabbage and rice were delicious, but for some reason I couldn't eat that much this time (´-ω-)|
After the meal, there is a weekday service.
Vanilla ice cream ♡
This is the guy who likes old men~
Enjoy dessert after your meal, drink cold tea and relax ♬
This is a great lunch for office workers!
If it's night, go to the ramen shop two doors down ⊂('ω'⊂ )))Σ≡GO!!
Delicious belly bread, full stomach ( ・(OO)・ ) bupi bupi
Thank you for the meal! !


A store I was interested in.
The parking lot can accommodate 4 cars two stores west of the store. There was also a bicycle parking lot.
The fillet cutlet had a crispy coating, and the meat was stretched out and soft.
I got ice cream at the end, which is only available on weekdays.
I'm happy, but it gets a little cold in winter.
I noticed that the floor was a little oily.


A friend of the common people, Kyoto's pork cutlet, local chain
I ordered the layered loin cutlet bowl. Even if the rice is smooth and sweet, it comes with miso soup and salad.
Miso soup and salad can be refilled. It maintains the quality of the chain and has a bit of uniqueness, which is nice. I'd love to stop by if you're passing by.
