A Perfect Saboten

saboten-1And this Tonkatsu place gets a perfect 10 for me. I know I’ve hailed the other Tonkatsu place as such but I’d go here every chance I get. It was that good. Now, let’s go over why this gets 10 out of 10 from me.

Unlimited cabbage

saboten-cabbage-1Instead of having your own share of cabbage, they just place it in this one bowl where they would fill it up whenever needed. Good thing too as some people might prefer to have this separated from their meals.

It packed that slight heat one would get from a Japanese curry. The chicken was fried well not to the point that it was oily. It kept the juices intact to make for one flavorful chicken piece. This set came with some miso soup.

Just pure pork meat goodness. Every bite was succulent with slight crunch thanks to the lightly coated breading. Dip it in the sauce and it enhances the flavor of the tonkatsu. One could order this in either small, medium or large. I forgot how many grams per order but the large fit our group of three just right. Paired with miso soup and rice, this was one set that could make one’s belly really full. 😀

sabotenAside from their delectable and almost perfect dishes, service was good too. The servers were attentive to our needs. I do think that their dishes are fairly priced as you would really get delicious and carefully prepared for meals.

It’s no wonder why this got a perfect 10 for me. It made my belly oh-so-happy that I’m willing to go back (everyday yes?) for more of their Tonkatsu dishes. 😀
