    Awesome chicken and rice. The miso soup is great too.

    Pricier than your average lunch, but you get high quality for the price. Other katsu places don't compare to their distinctively good food.

    Solid authentic tonkatsu. If Ootoya is an A, Katsu-Hama is a B.

    Try Age dashi tofu! It will change your perspective about the tofu forever. So yummy. The kurobuta katsu was just perfect. We all know they're famous for it.

    They've been doing amazing katsu for years. I've tried all the kinds on the menu and honest to god they're all great. Try the king salmon katsu. It's a little less traditional but damn it's delish.

    Berkshire pork comes with a huge piece of fat. Regular combo pork loin is better. I like to get the Oroshi special, comes with radish and ponzu for dipping. If you're a vegetarian, ask for tofu curry!

    I tried the chicken katsu for dinner which was okay. The rice didn't taste very fresh. Service is pretty quick. I liked the attention and the green ice tea.

    Though this authentic tonkatsu-ya has branched out in the last couple of years, you're crazy to order anything not made with one of their imported-from-Virginia pork cutlets, either fatty or lean. Read more
