Tonkatsu Narikura

Exquisite white tonkatsu, slowly deep-fried at low temperature

Tonkatsu (pork cutlet)

A tonkatsu (pork cutlet) restaurant that serves marbled Kogen pork from Tochigi Prefecture. Located on a basement floor, diners enter the restaurant by descending the stairs. With 18 seats, the restaurant is small, but very popular, with lines of customers waiting to eat tonkatsu.
One of the distinguishing features of this restaurant is its tonkatsu, which is served with a white coating of deep-fried batter. This unique color is said to be the result of slowly deep-frying in lard at low temperatures, for approximately 20 minutes - quite a long period of cooking time. The deep-fried coating melts in your mouth, providing diners with an unequaled, quite artistically delicious experience.
