いつもは予約できない高田馬場の成蔵が1日限定で完全予約制のだったので行ってきました。

They prepare special menu for that day only. It was more expensive than usual.

But all sets have an appetizer.
From left to right, boiled hijiki with soy sauce, potato salad and mozuku seaweed.

いつもより高いスペシャルメニューですが、前菜もついてます。左からひじき、ポテサラ、もずく。

I ordered Three pieces of Chatonbriand tonkatsu set (シャ豚ブリアンかつ定食 3個, 4200 yen).
* Chatonbriand is parody of Chateaubriand (steak).
There’s salt and Worcester sauce on the table. And also three seasonings were served with the tonaktsu.
Sweet chili sauce, wasabi-duke (pickled wasabi) and ponzu with grated daikon radish.

注文したのはシャ豚ブリアン。卓上の塩やソースとは別に、スイートチリソースや、わさび漬け、おろしぽん酢が添えられています。

Section of the Chatonbriand.
That I ate last time was more fatty than it. But its coating was so crisp and tasty.

You think its coating is white nevertheless it is tonkatsu.
Yes. It’s the feature of Narikura’s tonkatsu. They take much time to fry tonkatsu deeply at low temperature. So, its coating keep its weak color.

Though we could many ways of eating it with many seasonings, I liked eating it with salt after all as usual:)

断面。脂は前回のほうがのってたかな。でも白っぽい衣は相変わらずサクサク。いろんな調味料ついてたけど、結局塩が一番おいしかった(ノ∀`)
