Four or five different heirloom breeds of pork are generally on offer at this popular tonkatsu specialist, with dinnertime teishoku set meals starting at around Y1400-2000 depending on the type of pork. The teishoku comes with a deep, rich tonjiru soup (Y100 if you want a refill), some nice potato salad and good pickles. The pork is covered in a light-colored coating that's flakier than average, with a good balance of meat to fat.
There's space for around twenty diners, and the shop fills up fast - there's usually a line soon after they open for dinner. Drinks include Ebisu beer and inexpensive wine by the glass.
