WHY GO

T.Dining Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Japanese -

Wine and dine to scrump­tious Ja­panese fare at 6,000 feet above sea level, in the city above the clouds.

As its name means Ja­panese breaded deep-fried pork cut­let, so un­doubt­edly that is the star of the menu al­though there is a good range of deep fried meats and seafood of prawns, sal­mon and a firm favourite of juicy oys­ters deep­fried to per­fec­tion.

Start with a bowl of tasty double-boiled pork belly soup to pre­pare the palate for the katsu dishes to come. For the star of the night, the pork cut­lets are a de­light with its moist, ten­der meat en­cased within a golden crisp ex­te­rior. They are good on its own, but paired with Tonkatsu’s sig­na­ture home­made sesame sauce further ac­cen­tu­ates the flavours of the dish.

The pan-sautéed pork belly with gin­ger sauce is highly rec­om­mended as the suc­cu­lent pork slices sautéed with sweet onions are a per­fect ac­com­pa­ni­ment to white rice. For those wish­ing to spice things up, the katsu curry is a good choice with its smooth, flavour­ful Ja­panese curry am­ply com­ple­ment­ing the pork fil­let.
