This is my quick fix for tonkatsu whenever I visit Hong Kong and cannot make it to Japan. Love their all you can eat cabbage salad and dressing. If I remember correctly, there is 2 kinds of pork you can choose, one is more on the fatty side and the other one is leaner. Pick the fatty one, you will enjoy it so much more. If you are already eating fried stuff, might as well go all the way and enjoy it, right ?

Wide selection of Japanese food but be careful with what are ordering as it can be pricey fast. Staff is very helpful.

Tonkatsu when I was young and on a low budget in Japan was a lifesaver - nutritious, filling, very affordable. The fried pork cutlets, by custom served with shredded cabbage, a sharp mustard, and a sweetish dark sauce, are on many Japanese restaurant menus around the world but rarely done as well as at home. This place comes close, though I think the mustard was still not quite as sharp as it should be. But that may be me being nostalgic.

Good food, good ambiance, good view, good service ! Though cutlet style, you cannot find a single drop of oil at the bottom of the dish ! And the finely shredded cabbage will sure help to relieve any remaining fear of deep-fried food.
