I saw photos of this shop’s tonkatsu and I felt like going to there at any cost.
Tonkatsu Aoki is very popular shop in Kamata, but it’s too far for me.
I was really glad when I heard that they are open their new shop in Daimon.
Tonkatsu Daimon Aoki
It is located between Hamamatsucho and Shimbashi station. Within walking distance from Tokyo Tower.
They serve inexpensive lunch on weekdays only, but it was weekend.
They use Hayashi SPF Pork grown in Chiba prefecture. SPF stands for Specific Pathogen Free. SPF pork meat is said to be safe and healthy. Nevertheless such a plenty of fats, it isn’t sticky at all.
Pork boston butt tonkatsu
I chose pork boston butt tonkatsu set (カタロースかつ定食, 2000 yen).
Tonkatsu, pork soup, pickled vegetables and rice.
You might not understand from this photo, but it was very large and thick. Its coating was crisp.
Medium-rare. I hadn’t eaten such a juicy tonkatsu ! Not only Worcester sauce and mustard but also there’re seven species of salts and we can enjoy several tastes with them.
If you want your tonkatsu well-cooked, they cook as you like.
Speaking of Tonkatsu, I loved Narikura’s tonkatsu best. But now, it’s the best tonkatsu for me.
