Kita Ichi Sakaba is what we call "the seafood izakaya" where you can find the fresh seafood delivered directly from Hokkaido.  The fish, the crabs, and even the clams which are the survivors of the cold weather from northern part of Japan made their body firm up to be amazingly delicious.  Our recommendations here are Sashimi Sandan Mori (the 3 floors of super fresh raw fish in season), Kani Bukkake Dashimaki Tamago(Japanese Rolled Omelette covered with insanely full of crabs), and Ikura Don (rice bowl topped with fresh salmon roe), Sapporo Yakisoba (sea urchin taste fried noodles with vegetables and prawns), Nihon Ichi no Korokke(Japan's number one croquette with potatoes and pumpkins inside which has sold over 50,000 in one month).  The 3 floors of sashimi was something that we have never seen before, lively seafood beautifully placed on the wooden structure.  Put some wasabi in their specially delivered soy sauce from southern part of Japan and you will quickly realize the freshness of the fish in the first bite which also goes perfectly well with their carefully selected Japanese sake you may never find in your country.  The rolled omelette also was pretty amazing to see, the staff of this restaurant calls out many times in Japanese to throw out the crabs on the omelette until it gets fully covered by the crabs.  Crabs were all over the place at the end which was quite funny and entertaining to watch.  Then they slightly burns the crabs on top with the burner to make it savory.  It was just outstanding and hats off we had to give them a round of applause.  The quality of the food in Kita Ichi is indeed exquisite.  

 

The staffs who are all wearing the beautiful kimono here are very polite and had the best service, which was also impressive.  

 

The outstanding view of the central Ginza is definitely something worth to see with your family, friends, or couples.  The cozy seats in this restaurant were very clean and spacious which certainly gives you the most relaxing and enjoyable moments while having delicious seafood and Japanese sake in the heart of Ginza.

Anzu is a restaurant that serves the authentic Tonkatsu (pork cutlets) in Ginza Tokyo.  The well-known branded Ginjo Joshu pork loin from Gunma Prefecture neatly covered with the crispy batter coating in Anzu is as tender as the roasted beef and has a profound flavor of the first class meat that makes the customers completely speechless.  The highest quality oil is also used to deep-fry the meat which is one of the most important factors of making its Tonkatsu delicious.  

Perhaps, one bite is good enough to tell you how high the quality of the meat is which naturally makes it best to have them by just salt to enjoy the sophisticated taste of the ingredients.  In other words, you don't need thick flavored sauce to appreciate their Ginjo Joshu pork.  Just sprinkle their special salt over the cutlets and you would understand why many local gourmet patrons don't use the sauce for the first class pork cutlets in Japan.  Every bite is definitely pleasure to remember especially after experiencing their mind blowing meat juice that spread out in your mouth.

If you have never had the highest quality Tonkatsu in Japan, the Anzu's authentic Joshu pork loin may change the way you see pork cutlets going forward.  The fresh sliced cabbages, thinly sliced dried strips of daikon, and some  tasty pickles are also outstanding accompanied with shining white rice and delicious miso soup.

Imakatsu offers the exceptional Sasami Katsu known as chicken tenderloin cutlets which is one of the most popular menu in this restaurant along with special pork loin cutlets. A typical chicken tenderloin is usually more dried, but the one in Imakatsu is surprisingly juicy and tender which may change your stereotype of chicken tenderloins you used to have.  On the other hand, the batter coating is relatively thin so it is not crispy at all.  In other words, it is not heavily covered by the oily coatings that sometimes makes people hesitate to have.  In that sense, it may be good for ladies who like to have exceptional cutlets with less stress.  Meanwhile, you can enjoy their juicy chicken tenderloin meat with salt to enjoy its sophisticated ingredients deeper.  It is absolutely delicious!

Another outstanding Tonkatsu (pork cutlet) restaurant in Ginza is Genkatsu.  The restaurant serves the exceptional pork cutlet, a slice made of 25 layers of thin pork loins batter coated inside which makes it extremely juicy and the flavor that spreads in your mouth is just breathtaking while the outside of the cutlet is pleasantly crispy. You may not feel its typical dynamic chewy texture of Tonkatsu that doesn’t contain 25 meat layers inside, but a lot of Japanese ladies love this lighter type of Tonkatsu in Genkatsu which is the reason why most of the customers in this restaurant are ladies.  You can also choose flavors of those slices of pork cutlet from plain, black pepper, ume plum and Japanese basil, leek and salt, condiment paste made from yuzu zest and chili peppers, cheese, and garlic. All of them match perfectly well with the Tonkatsu sauce, ponzu sauce, or rock salt, but we would recommend a simple yet the most sophisticated way of having high quality Tonkatsu by rock salt to enjoy the ingredients much more deeper.  When you have a chance to visit this restaurant in Ginza, make sure to order their Genkatsu Zen (1980 yen) accompanied with white rice, miso soup, Japanese pickles, and fresh sliced cabbages.  

The décor, on the other hand, is very stylish and relaxing which makes a wonderful atmosphere to have exceptional Tonkatsu in Ginza.

When you come to Bairin, a restaurant that was founded nearly 90 years ago, you must not leave without trying their Katsudon (pork cutlet served on top of a bowl of rice). Our recommendation here is definitely the Kurobuta Special Katsudon (2500 yen).  The exceptional tender pork loin on top of the fresh white rice that is making an excellent match with the soft boiled egg and the tasty sauce, is indeed a perfection of Katsudon.  The pork in Bairin is as tender as the sirloin beef and its profound flavor just amazes the customers with every bite that is absolutely pleasure to remember.  The quality of the Tonkatsu (pork cutlets) set is also high standard in Bairin which you can enjoy their pork with the tasty sauce accompanied with sliced cabbages.  They are absolutely delicious.  The people lining up outside of the restaurant also proves the popularity of this restaurant.

For those who have never tried Hitsumabushi before, try the delicious one with the highest quality in Bincho where they serve one of the best in Ginza and Yurakucho.

Hitsumabushi is the chopped broiled eel cooked over charcoal with soy flavored sauce on top of the white rice which is one of the most popular traditional food in Japan.  Among many great restaurants that serve Hitsumabushi in Ginza and Yurakucho, the one in Bincho is exceptionally good.  The freshness of the eel, the technique to broil it over the charcoal, and the preparation of the tasty secret sauce on the eel are just phenomenal which we have nothing but praises for. The eel also has a crispy texture on the skin which is Bincho's special style not to steam it during the preparation and that is bringing out the superb taste inside the fish too.  

The broiled eel fillet in Bincho has a profound flavor that makes everyone on your table happy while you can also enjoy their clear broth soup and fresh pickles. Try it once and you will love it!
