かつくら (Katsukura)

When my darling and I are tired, we crave for Japanese food! One of our favorite Japanese restaurants is かつくら (Katsukura). They serve sophisticated tonkatsu (deep-fried breaded pork cutlet) from Kyoto.

If you order tonkatsu at かつくら (Katsukura), you'll first get their original Kyoto-style tsukemono (Japanese pickles). I don't like tsukemono, but their tsukemono is amazingly delicious!

While you wait for tonkatsu, you grind your sesame seeds served in a small mortar and mix them with their original tonkatsu sauce.

Now the tonkatsu is served with farm-fresh shredded cabbage on the side with original yuzu (citrus ichangensis) dressing!

My darling always go for 170g (6oz) pork loin cutlet.

I always go for a combi menu that comes with small pork fillet cutlet and seasonal vegetable yuba (tofu skin) croquette!

Their miso soup, cabbage and wheat rice are all-you-can-eat!!! I love their miso soup. They use white miso with a hint of Japanese mustard! Amazingly addictive!!!

Actually, I am not that crazy about deep-fried foods in general, but I like the way their foods are served, so we go there once in a while!

Maybe this weekend again?! LoL

  4. Hi merce-san,

    Your name is different, but I'm guessing you are merce-san. hehe

    I know you like Jap food like tonkatsu ;)

  5. I <3 Japanese food! You make me feel very hungry now. I wish i can cook japanese food (I tried making sushi but it failed. Hahaha). I then went to youtube to watch how people make it but i don't think I will be able to master it yet. I should go for a Japanese cooking class. Haha! (I also don't have the wooden bucket to mix my sushi rice with the vinegar and my rice gets sticky)

    BTW : You look so young & gorgeous!

  6. Hi Tsu Lin,

    I love Jap food, too!

    You know what?! It is better to eat and try many sushi before you try to cook ;) In that way, you will get an idea how it should be done good for you. I always do that when I try to cook foreign foods :D Because there are too many recipes for one dish, you know.
