Cosy comfort reminiscent of casual eateries in Japan. Decor is minimal but effective in creating a clean-cut look. Serves authentic tonkatsu from various cuts of high quality pork and seafood.

Good Tonkatsu

This restaurant is located on the 3rd floor of Shaw House. They serve Tonkatsu and other deep-fried items. The tonkatsu include different cuts of meat, such as the pork loin and tenderloin. There's also fried oyster which I love and always order. They have sets available, so its easy to order. Rice and sliced cabbage is free-flow. Try it!

The only Tonkatsu specialty chained restaurant in Singapore, Tonkichi bills itself as a cosy restaurant in reminiscent of the causal eateries in Japan. With the soft yellow lighting, the restaurant is a stark contrast from the nearby brightly-lit Japanese department store, Isetan. From the positive raving reviews about their Original Tonkatsu, I was skeptical about the quality and authentic of their Japanese food. I decided to try for myself to see if it is really one of the best Tonkatsu restaurant in Singapore.

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.
