Good tasting Katsu in the East

We were looking for a few criteria:
1)  Delicious Japanese cooked food (as opposed to raw)
2)  Wife's Birthday Dinner
3)  Nearby (we live in the East)
4)  Something new and different

Katsuya fulfilled all of the above!  We ordered the Black Pork Katsu, as well as a 'standard' Tamago Katsudon, and we washed it down with hot Yuzu tea.

The Black Pork Katsu is particularly fantastic.  It had all the right amount of fat and meat, and it was definitely different from the usual Katsu fare (think Saboten).  It also came with unlimited cabbage (but only if everyone ordered the Katsu dish, we didn't).  The tamago katsudon wasn't really great, though, and we regretted not ordering two of the Black Pork Katsu.

It's run by a husband-and-wife team.  The wife takes the order and the husband cooks behind the glass kitchen.  They mentioned in the menu that while they were short-staffed, they would not compromise on the food quality and it was definitely true.

We went on a Thursday evening and it was pretty empty, save for 2-3 groups of Japanese speaking clients (that's how you tell it's authentic Jap food).  Definitely coming back again...

Delicious Katsu!

I have been frequenting Katsuya over the past three years and have enjoyed all of the meals I had there. The katsu is delicious and not as oily as other popular katsu restaurants in town. The light colour of the katsu crumb is also indicative of the good quality fresh oil that they used (as opposed to the dark cooking oil that has been re-used for frying many times).

Their seasonal buta kakuni with Japanese mustard is a delicious melts-in-your-mouth treat, and is a must try dish if it is on the menu.

The husband and wife duo who runs the shop as a team are warm and friendly, and it's a place I would love to go more often, if only it is not so far!

A Friend recommended me to this place which specializes in Tonkatsu(my luv). We headed there as soon as we could from J.East. It was very much full as it was wkend evening.

Upon entering, I was told tat waiting time est. 30mins. Since i'm here already.. So y not;) [1 Chef in Kitchen 1 Service in Hall..] LOL (Muz b kidding me.) waited ard 25mins all my orders came out. SURPRISED! Inspite we order Wagyu(tataki), Mix Katsu, Sashimi & etc. Fd was really well waited and travelled for. Non-oily is kinda of the "KEY" here(Sunflower Oil). Waited a little to get some service for my sake.. but it's totally alright. We aren't looking for fast food anyway. Was told tat their PT staff went holiday tat's y left with 2 of them... Still, well organized. We'll definitely be back again soon.
