During our stay in Tokyo last month, auntie T and uncle M took me and dad to a great Tonkatsu place near Meguro station, it's called "Tonki".
It was super crowded and we ended up sitting at the counter, they had up to 90 seats. While waiting they asked whether we wanted ロース (Sirloin) or ヒレ (Fillet). Uncle, auntie and dad took fillet but I chose sirloin.
It was so delicious, as we were sitting by the counter we could see them cook. It was a great experience. And now I know how they could get it so crispy! Normally I only dip it in egg and crumbles once, but here they did it aprox. 5 times!!
Their miso soup was also to die for, they gave me extra serving for free ^^
I def. recommend you to go here if you are a Tonkatsu fan and are around Tokyo area!!!
Each time he cut the katsu he had an intense look. So awesome ^^
