Tonkatsu NightThursday, July 24, 2014
Got invited to taste the food of the newest restaurant at Centrio Mall - Tonkatsu by Terazawa. It was a rainy Tuesday evening but that didn't stop me to taste the classic favorite in Japanese homes which is the tonkatsu.
Tonkatsu, is a Japanese food which consists of a breaded, deep-fried pork cutlet. There are two main types, hire (pork fillet) and rosu (pork loin). It is often served with shredded cabbage.
The dish, Tonkatsu, is showcased, as created by Japanese restaurateur and chef Akinori Terazawa. Chef Terazawa uses the traditional Japanese method of preparing this dish, incorporating aging the meat by wrapping it in white cloth for 3 days. And said that this procedure produces meat that is irresistibly flavorful and juicy.
All sets are served with refillable shredded cabbage, tonjiru (miso soup with pork), and your choice of Japanese rice or brown rice. It's my first time to taste shredded cabbage with salad dressing and I love it. It can already fill-in the rice but the delicious Japanese rice is irresistible also. Yes, Im such a rice lover! ^_^
