This tiny, nine-seat counter shop just may serve the best deep-fried beef cutlet in Tokyo. The meat is beautifully marbled, encased in a thin, softly crunchy coating and quite tasty with just a bit of grated rock salt. Do try the onion sauce though - this is also one of our favorites in town, assertively pungent with a bit of peppery kick to it.
The spicy pickles are also outstanding, although we wish there were more of them. We'd recommend the teishoku set with a double order of meat (260g; Y1900), although they also sell triple and quadruple meat options. Grated yam is an extra Y100 if you like that sort of thing. Menus are in English and Korean, and there's a detailed instruction sheet on how to eat.
