    I always come back to this restaurant for katsu curry and udon. Their katsu is so crispy and Their freshly ground sesame sauce make an umami flavor with the pork.

    Arrive before noon to avoid the rush. The standard lunch set (120g of pork loin I believe) is authentic katsu.

    The most authentic Japanese cutlet place I've ever visited in NYC. From the authentic taste to the free refill of rice and cabbages, everything is as just same as Tokyo.

    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!
