What’s not to love about Japanese tonkatsu? It may not be the healthiest food option around but it sure hits the spot every time. We simply adore tonkatsu whether it’s stuffed with melty cheese, drenched in Japanese curry or simply on its own.
For the uninitiated, Tonkatsu is a Japanese dish which consists of meat that is breaded, deep-fried to golden perfection and usually served with rice and shredded cabbage. The most common tonkatsu is pork tonkatsu, with the fillet and the loin being popular cuts to choose from.
For the love of all things breaded and fried, that boasts a crunch and succulence like no other, here is our list of 10 best tonkatsu restaurants in Singapore.
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.
