Ponta Honke

ぽん多本家 (ぽんたほんけ)

Tonkatsu, Croquette

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Founded in 1905, by the Grand Chef of Western cuisine of The Imperial House. They invented the Tonkatsu by evolving the Milanese or breaded pork in tempura style. The secret of Ponta Honke is to extract the fat from the fillets and use it when frying the Tonkatsu, at low temperature first and strong at the end. The butter is flavored, crispy and light with a characteristic sweetness. There are also other types of western food such as beef stew (Kurage Wagyu). Recommendation of Japan Gourmet Pass in Ueno.
