WHY GO

Hail­ing from Aoyama, Seiyokan in Ja­pan where it first opened in 1965, the fa­mous tonkatsu chain brings the same din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence as what you'd ex­pect from the Land of the Ris­ing Sun.

TATLER TIPS

A def­i­nite must-try is the kat­sum­abushi set—bite-sized pork ten­der­loin katsu on top of steamed rice and served with on­sen tam­ago and dashi stock. The panko crunch sur­round­ing the suc­cu­lent meat in­side is hard to beat. The pork sukiyaki set is another stel­lar dish with a broth that oozes with umami. Purists will surely love the ten­der­loin tonkatsu set. No mat­ter how sim­ple the dish is, it is, af­ter all, pat­terned af­ter what you would get in Ja­pan—min­i­mal­ist yet of the high­est qual­ity. In­dulge in fine Ja­panese whisky like the Hakushu 18 years or the Hibiki 17 years.
