What makes Tonkatsu Manpei, a small restaurant in a hidden street with only 16 seats, so famous must be their signature dish that is only available from usually November to late March. The
deep fried fresh oyster with butter, so called Kaki no butter yaki (1750 yen), is a simple yet one of the most profound cuisines by the chef that needs proficient technique for the preparation.
In this restaurant, the oysters are pleasantly bigger enough to outstrip the strong flavor of the batter coating and that you will feel the freshness of the delicious raw material spreading
in your mouth by leaving you completely speechless. You would probably find many people ordering the same menu with the look of amazement at the end thinking how tasty and delicious the
pieces of oyster are in Manpei. On the other hand, the standard pork cutlets so called Rosu Katsu (1600 yen) they serve throughout the year are also outstanding which you would feel no
regret for coming here, even when the oysters are out of season.
