Tonkichi is under the Pokka Food umbrella, like Domani
and Rive Gauche. If you tend to frequent these restaurants, or often buy cakes from Rive Gauche (like me), thePokka Card
is quite a worthwhile investment. There are certain days (for Tonkichi, it's the 1st and 3rd Wed of the month) where members enjoy a whopping 25% discount.
One glance at the Tonkotsu ramen and I knew that the soup was going to disappoint and true enough, it was not the thick, creamy pork bone soup I expected. Nonetheless, the bowl of ramen had its redeeming points. The noodles were springy and the flavored egg was perfect with a soft, runny center.
The set comes with a side dish and a choice of tonkatsu. For me, I chose the Agedashi Tofu and Hire Katsu.
I have to say, the highlight of this meal was the Hire katsu! I was initially torn between the hire and rosu katsu until the waiter helpfully pointed out the the hire had less fats and so hire it was. The hire was juicy and tender while the crumbs on the outside were deep fried into a crunchy golden brown. The best part? It didn't feel oily at all.
