Japan’s ultimate comfort food, tonkatsu is a an unlikely dish for Michelin attention, but it’s a national favourite. For those uninitiated, tonkatsu is in its most classic form a deep-fried pork cutlet usually often served with cabbage. Katsuzen is the only Michelin-starred tonkatsu restaurant and with good reason. Their succulent pork covered in a layer of crispy breadcrumbs makes it world class. The restaurant’s owner, Etsuo Nagai, has worked as a tonkatsu chef for around 50 years, so he knows what he’s doing.A lunch set here will cost you around US$40, which includes appetizers and sides. If you visit for dinner expect to fork out around US$75.
