I love tonkatsu. It is one of my favourite food. We are lucky that there are a few places in Singapore that serve very good tonkatsu (I will go so far as to say that they are on par with the ones in Japan).
It is hard to define what makes a good tonkatsu. Is it the meat? Should it be kurobuta or mangalica? Which cut is the best? Is hire or fillet better? Should you eat it with the Japanese Worcestershire sauce? Or do you use soy sauce, or miso-based sauce? How about variations like tonkatsu with cheese and katsu curry?
Taste is subjective, and everyone has their favourites. The following few are, in my opinion, the best tonkatsu restaurants in Singapore.
“Tonkatsu by Ma Maison at Mandarin Gallery has the BEST tonkatsu in Singapore,” my pal Fred would tell me every time when we meet up for our glutton outings with Beatrice and Velda. After hearing this, how do you expect me to pretend that nothing had happened?
The few of us finally arranged a date to go there for dinner. And after trying it, I have to agree with Fred. Tonkatsu by Ma Maison has one of the best, if not the best tonkatsu in Singapore.
My quest to find the best tonkatsu brought me to Saboten at Changi Airport Terminal 1.
I’ve always wanted to try Saboten after hearing so much about it. Many people have been telling me that it is their favourite tonkatsu restaurant in Singapore. I am embarrassed that it took me so long to go there, but I am happy to say that I finally had the chance to drop by to sample some of the signature items on the menu.
The question now is, does Saboten have the best tonkatsu in Singapore?
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.
I’m always on the lookout for restaurants that have good food at affordable prices, but I don’t have much luck when it comes to Japanese food as most places tend to be a) cheap but mediocre, or b) good but expensive.
Beatrice, Velda and I were craving for Japanese food after our meeting with the folks from Intel and Toshiba, so we went to Liang Court, also known as little Japan in Singapore. While walking around, we chanced upon Yayoiken, a new Japanese Restaurant at the entrance of Meidi-ya supermarket.
After having lunch there, I’ll go so far as to say that my hunt for a place that serves inexpensive and good Japanese food has ended with Yayoiken at Liang Court.
As I was walking in Orchard Central, I suddenly realized that it is actually a pretty nice place for dining. First of all, Orchard Central is relatively quiet compared to the other shopping malls in Orchard Singapore, and most importantly, there are a lot of restaurants in Orchard Central!
The funny thing is: Ootoya Japanese Restaurant is the only restaurant in Orchard Central that has a queue. In case you are wondering how to find a way around this, no, they don’t take reservations. You need to be there early before lunch/dinner time, or just wait (at least) twenty-thirty minutes for a table.
Everything starts with a craving.
The story goes something like this: I woke up one day, and found myself craving for tonkatsu, or more specifically, Katsu Sandwich. I was suddenly reminded about Romankan Yokohama, this Japanese eatery in the basement of Ngee Ann City.
