Not long ago I saw a post on Tokyo's best tonkatsu restaurants and a poster mentioned several that I hadn't heard of before: Narikura, Tonta, Maruichi, and Agetsuki. So I added them to my list to visit, then Robbie Swinnerton (The Japan Times) did a review of Narikura recently. So that inspired me to check it out. Several of the larger cuts of Hirata Bokujyo Kinkaton was sold out so I went with the 120g roast for ¥2060. It was amazing-tender pork in a crispy batter. There was something of a wait, but it was worth it-this tonkatsu belongs in the elite company of Maisen, Butagumi, and Tonki for sure.
