Another one of my favourite restaurants in Tokyo, this one specializes in miso-katsu. I always make it a point to visit this restaurant whenever I’m in Tokyo.
The main branch of this restaurant is in Nagoya but I have yet to visit that branch. This branch in Tokyo opened on 8th March 2004.
If you like tonkatsu (deep-fried breaded pork) and miso, you won’t want to miss this! They use a Nagoya-style red miso paste which is sweeter than normal miso.

Here’s a look at their Menu…
鉄板とんかつ Teppan Tonkatsu with miso-based sauce – this is a deep-fried pork (loin) cutlet which is served with cabbage on a hot plate.
Yumm… this was my dinner – ひれとんかつ Hire Tonkatsu (deep-fried pork fillet cutlet with miso-based sauce) and a side order of 矢場とん汁 Tonjiru (a Japanese soup made with pork and vegetables, flavoured with miso). I have a weakness for ‘tonjiru’ and it’s one of my comfort foods! ^_^
