Katsu? Done!

Kimukatsu comes to Waikiki.

Waikiki Magazine - - IDINE - By Waikiki Team

Tokyo hot spot Kimukatsu makes its Hawai‘i de­but right here in Waikiki! With its ca­sual-cool in­te­ri­ors and vis­ual menu, the restau­rant oozes “hip, Ja­panese eatery.” The restau­rant’s claim to fame lies in its 25-layer pork cut­let.

Coated in bread­crumbs, fried and steamed un­til it’s per­fectly crisp on the out­side and thor­oughly cooked on the in­side, the fa­mous pork cut­let comes in a va­ri­ety of fla­vors such as cheese, black pep­per and okonomiyaki style. Din­ers can choose to have a set meal— which in­cludes cab­bage salad, rice, miso soup and Ja­panese pick­les— or go à la carte. If you’d like spice up your en­trée, try one of the five op­tional spe­cial sauces: gar­lic but­ter, ume shiso ponzu, salt and spring onion, grated daikon and yuzu ponzu. Kimukatsu also has plenty of starters to choose from onion salad to taro tem­pura. As for dessert, you’ll love the black sesame pud­ding or Ja­panese panna cotta.
