Do you know Japanese Dagashi (cheap snack) called Big Katsu? It costs 32yen each and tastes like a real pork cutlet. It is fake (made from fish), though. hehe

I don't like to eat this by itself, but I found it is delicious if you make Katsudon (deep fried pork cutlet rice bowl) using this!!! Trust me XD
