とんかつ太郎

Tonkatsu, Katsudon

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

As the restaurant name already explains, at Taro the specialty is Tonkatsu and the local Tarekatsudon which was created for them early on Showa period. The classic tarekatsu-don consists in five pork cutlets perfectly deep-fried with homemade breadcrumbs. The final results is a tender, juicy and crispy Tonkatsu on top of a bowl of rice. The way is made you can mostly find it in Niigata. For some foreigners the terakatsu-don remember them the "schnitzel", but definitely even the visual aspect is similar, both dishes are totally different.
