Crispy, Crunchy Katsu

One of my favorite food cities is Tokyo. Japanese food is one of my top three favorite cuisines (right up there with Spanish cuisine). So to have one of my favorite meals in Tokyo thrills my palate and stomach. On our last trip to Tokyo, about 7 years ago, we kept going back to Katsukura. The katsu there is amazing - so flaky, crispy, crunchy coated all around a succulent slice of Japanese pork.

The bar is set high for a great katsu place elsewhere in the world. When my family and I come across a katsu place that has a nice atmosphere, we get really excited to try it out. We did just that in Hong Kong.

Tonkichi Tonkatsu has several locations throughout Hong Kong. We dined at the Tsim Sha Tsui location on Canton Road. Overall, we had a good experience. It didn't come near our standard in Tokyo, but it was a satisfying meal because of the crispy, crunchy, flakiness of the pork katsu.

Not yet - we stopped by the one in Mitsukoshi but it was super crowded. Next time we're there we'll try to go! We love katsu!
