I chose “Tonki” for today’s lunch, which is well-known Tonkatsu restaurant in gourmet magazines. Tonkatsu is a breaded pork cutlet fried in high temperature oil, and eaten with cabbage. It is not a Japanese traditional food, but it is more like a home-style dish.
Anyway, Tonki sets reasonable prices even though it is located in Ginza. Their popularity is from its mild flavor and no need to suffer from heavy stomach afterwards.

I arrived there 1 afternoon, not to conflict with the busiest lunchtime, but it was filled up with people!!!

Reasonable price in Ginza


Inside of the restaurant is very cozy with only 10 seats along counter, and 12 table seats. But they must carry a good business because I could feel their energy and vitality. They take your order while waiting for the seats to open, so it didn’t take long to the meal to set on the table.
The master was observing the entire restaurant, and managing every practice. In my opinion, that makes the restaurant more comfortable.

Katsudon-set meal


A lot of onion was stewed well in dashi, which is Japanese soup stock. And sliced fried pork cutlet is covered by fluffy cooked eggs. There you go. The perfect Katsu-don is toped with cut Nori and trefoil!! You can feel the tenderness of pork with first bite.
Rice was soaked with sweet-soy soup♪ Just amazing.

Meaty fried pork


The balance of bread soaked in Tashi, and soft-cooked egg are creating perfect harmony.
Tonkatsu served at this restaurant is famous for not having heavy stomach afterwards, and that might be their popularity too.

Shouga-yaki set menu


Shouga-yaki is also a Japanese home-style meal. Shouga means ginger, and yaki means grill. Usually it is cooked with pork. According to the Wikipedia, shouga-yaki is the second most popular Japanese pork dish after tonkatsu.
Shouga-yaki at this restaurant looks a bit smaller but well soaked into ginger syrup and moreish♪

Soaked pork


You can also see their charming point from macaroni salad hiding under heaps of cut cabbage. The master named “Tonki” after a spirit of good services. Because “Ton” is named after pig and “ki” means happiness in Japanese.
