Highly rated by Tokyo's tonkatsu cognoscenti, this pork cutlet specialist serves a cutlet with a thin but pleasantly crunchy coating and juicy meat on the inside. The accompanying tofu soup is above average; other options include menchi katsu, pork saute and oysters (in winter).
The long-running mom-and-pop shop is brightly lit and somewhat austere - it might be a better choice for a quick lunch than dinner. No dinner on Saturdays; lunch only.
