The perfect fried pork
Don't let the thought of a chain of restaurants fool you... Here, the quality is superb and authentic as one can expect from a generation of family-owned establishments.
Katsukura is the best at tonkatsu, a tender and deliciously fried pork tenderloin. This dish often served with miso soup and a bowl of rice is one of the many culinary adaptations that have originated from Europe and adapted by the Japanese chefs.
A little chopped raw cabbage accompanies each plate, to facilitate digestion. The weight of the meat fillet is your choice: 80 grams, 120 grams, or 160 grams. There are five Katsukura restaurants in Kyoto, all having the same unique atmospheres and large tables that can accommodate a large group, up to a party of 10.
