Carefully Selected Ingredients
To make the dish, they use a special blend of oil. They age their miso for three years and use homemade coarse breadcrumbs that holds the sauce well. They are especially particular about rice. Different kinds of rice are used depending on the season, and they even sift the rice to use only prefect grains.
Same Flavor Handed Down Over Generations
Their signature dish is Ganso Misokatsudon (original miso cutlet bowl - 1,200 yen). The pork cutlet is simmered in a sweet and salty sauce, and the sauce is soaked into the crust. The meat is very tender and juicy. There is a generous portion of pork, so you can add toppings like an egg (50 yen) or green onion (100 yen) to have a variation in taste.
Generous Portion of Plump Prawns
Their Miso Ebidon (fried prawn with miso sauce over rice 1,450 yen) is as popular as the Ganso Misokatsudon. The fried prawns absorb the sweet and salty sauce that goes very well with white rice! Many customers visit this restaurant many times only for this dish.
