Tonkatsu by Wa Kitchen @ Pavilion, KL

I was ranting to Chris about killing the boredom of having our katsudon norms (yes.. chicken and beef) at a Japanese restaurant when our partner-in-crime AiWei rang the bell of dining at Tonkatsu instead.


What’s Tonkatsu とんかつ?
Lat’s read along.
It’s a breaded, deep-fried pork cutlet, sliced into bite-sized pieces. Usually eaten with cabbage slices and miso soup. Yes. It’s pork!
We could have guessed many of you would be aware of the whereabouts of Tonkatsu.

We were greeted by friendly staffs upon entering and was pretty comfortable with their modern interior & neat surroundings. Their menu was simple & Tonkatsu is the main star. Choose between pork fillet cutlet or loin cutlet, or even both and you’ll be satiated, walking home satisfied.

Well, you will be served with a mini mortar & pestle like cutlery. Grind your own sesame seeds to release the aroma & don not forget to add the sweet sauce (Worcestershire or special Tonkatsu sauce) to taste. It’s a very appetizing sauce to dip with your pork/chicken cutlet.

Their pork cutlet are coated with panko or breadcrumbs before being deep fried. Crispy outer layer with juicy meat underneath. They are even garnished with yellow karashi; Japanese hot mustard for the extra oomph.
*Each set is served with sliced cabbage, tofu, pickled vegetables, pork vegetable miso soup & rice. The miso soup is very flavoursome as it was filled with ingredients.
*Remember to drench some plum sauce onto your cabbage slices for better taste.

Pan saute Pork Belly with Ginger sauce. Not a fan of deep fried meat? This gingery serving would suit you best. Goes very well with the rice.

Tonkatsu is the latest entry to Pavilion’s 6th ‘gastronomic’ floor. It’s a getaway if you happen to crave for a ‘oink oink ‘ adventure.
