Over the past few weeks, I’ve been on a hunt for the best Tonkatsu in Singapore, and since Tonkichi Restaurant has always been known as one of the top tonkatsu speciality restaurants, I decided to go there for my first stop. It has been a while since my last visit to Tonkichi, so I was quite excited to try it again.
After having the tonkatsu at Tonkichi, I’m thrilled to say that it is still as good as before, and I will go so far as to say that they have one of the best tonkatsu in Singapore.
Tonkichi restaurant currently has five outlets at Orchard Central, Isetan Scotts, Ngee Ann City, Tampines, and Suntec City.
It has a menu that focuses on sinful but oh-so-good deep-fried food. Most people would probably go for the signature Kurobuta Kata Rosu Set ($32.9), Rosu Katsu Set ($22.9) or Hire Katsu Set ($20.9). For seafood lovers, they have options like the Mixed Seafood Katsu Set ($25.9), and Oyster with Rosu Katsu Set ($26.9).
We decided to skip the Kurobuta Pork and go for Hire Katsu, Yakubari (Deep-fried pork fillet, prawn, oysters, and crab croquette) and Cheese Kasane Katsu. Everything was delicious. Deep-fried to a gorgeous golden brown, the Hire katsu was crispy, and not too oily. And what’s there not to like when you have melty cheese oozing out of the pork loin?
Hire Katsu Set – Deep fried Pork Fillet.
Tonkichi is without a doubt, one of the best Tonkatsu Restaurants in Singapore. I’m going to try Tonkatsu by Ma Maison next, so hopefully I will be able to share with you guys soon. Tell me, where is your favourite tonkatsu in Singapore?
