Tonkatsu Time

Experience the delicious old-fashioned charm of the Shitamachi neighborhood in Tokyo at Fuji Katsu, a tiny mom and pop food joint in Monzen Nakacho. Indulge in the fantastic tonkatsu, where a fresh slab of pork is expertly prepared and deep-fried to perfection. Don't miss out on this authentic Japanese culinary delight.

I'm now staying in the Shitamachi neighborhood of Monzen Nakacho, the old, down-home part of Tokyo, chock full of tiny mom and pop food joints like Fuji Katsu. You can't beat this kind of eating. I walked in for lunch and watched Mr. Fuji salt and pepper a glistening, fresh 1/2 inch-thick slab of pork, dredge it in flour, egg and panko, before deep frying it to perfection. Fantastic tonkatsu.
