Fried Pork Cutlet(Tonkatsu) & Must Try RAMEN in Tokyo Japan

  • Published on Jun 16, 2018
  • Yes, I'm finally in Japan!
    My first meal in Japan was at a tonkatsu pork restaurant, and I could see why it was highly rated. The pork was perfectly crispy and so juicy. I really loved the pork over rice, and you can't go wrong with the tonkatsu sandwich.
    After 3 pork dishes, I was in the mood for some ramen. I ordered 2 bowls: Yuzuratan ramen and Yuzu Tsuyu Tsukemen (dip ramen). I really loved how in the spicy ramen, the noodles just soaked up all the broth.
    Finally, since I was in Harajuku, I had to end the night with some dessert. Harajuku is known for crepes, so I went to a location that had an assortment of choices. I got the blueberry cheesecake crepe. Yeah... maybe a bit heavy after the 2 dinners I finished. Anyhow, it was amazingly crispy, and the tartness of the blueberries in combination with the soft cheesecake made it the perfect combination!

    I live in Tokyo and I always go to Maisen on my pay day. AFURI is also one of my favorite. If you do not want wheat noodles choose one made from Konnyaku.
    Hope many ppl who watched this experience both dishes

    At the ramen place, is there a way to hold the pork belly?
    The whole reason we are going to that ramen place is because we are kosher and i heard the broth there is chicken and dashi based.
    So it coming with the chashu would kinda defeat the purpose

    You should go to Yokohama prefecture next time! In Kamakura, there is famous restaurant (called Minemoto) for Soba and Katsudon. They have such a amazing Katsudon...🤤 And of course you should visit ramen museum👍🏻

      If you want the best tonkotsu (100% pork bone broth) go to Fukuoka but you probably won't find anything too spicy there. If you're a spice head, the only place I've found that can blow me away is Kikanbo (Devil Ramen) just south of Akihabara. Not best ramen you'll ever have, but it will make you tear up if you order any of the devil levels.
