Hearty Meal yet Healthy!
Originally, Katsuni is pork cutlet simmered in a broth with a beaten egg. Deep-fried tofu is used instead of pork cutlet in this restaurant. They use healthier rice oil to fry the tofu as well. The dish is attractive to customers who look for generous portions as well as healthier meals.
The Most Popular Signature Dish
Their signature dish is Tofu Katsuni Teishoku （1,330 yen）. The Tofu Katsuni absorbs their secret sauce and is brought to you piping hot. You will enjoy the different texture of tofu and ground pork. The sweetness of tofu and the flavor of pork fills your mouth when you bite into it.
Recommended for a Big Eater
The Rosu Katsu Gozen （pork loin cutlet plate - from 2,460 yen） comes in a large portion. The pork is deep-fried in rice oil, so the coating is light and crispy, making the pork very juicy. This hearty dish is so delicious that you can't stop eating it!
