(easy, good, tonkatsu at this simple cafe-restaurant in the newly-renovated chijmes. I go heavy on the sauce, which goes fantastically with the clean, non-greasy cutlet and the quality japanese rice. so good, and a decent price at lunch. that oyster is pretty damn good too, with plenty of lemon, even though I don’t usually like those mollusks.)
Tonkatsu & Sake Bar TONZAEMON by Ma Maison

decent bbq-it-yourself wagyu (and more) at this newly-refurbished outlet of the gyu-kaku chain at chijmes.
the once-chapel has been redone, with a long stretch of mid-ranging japanese restaurants serving a range of specialties, from ramen to tonkatsu. this one specialises in beef, of course, with the marbled styles dominating a menu broken up with sides and a couple seafood options.
it’s easy eating – a comfortable casual-ish environ and good slabs of meat. and is it just me, or can you stare at that meat-flipping gif forever?
