Marugo - Best Tonkatsu restaurant in Akihabara

When you are looking for great Tonkatsu (pork cutlets) restaurant in Akihabara, there is one called Marugo in a short distance. The tonkatsu in this restaurant is phenomenal, which is well known for its outstanding tenderness of the exceptional juicy meat coated by the high quality crispy batter that has long been making customers supremely impressed. The degree of perfection of the deep fried in Marugo is extremely high and once you have tried one of their top quality pork cutlets, you will never see pork cutlets the same way again.

Among many tempting choices on the menu, the Hirekatsu (pork filet cutlet) 2100 yen is exceptionally good by simply sprinkling over a pinch of rock salt and a refreshing lemon to add a flavor.  Also ask their impeccable wait staff for the rice and soup (450 yen) which can be added upon request.  

You might have to wait for few minutes to get seated but definitely pays off once you taste their exceptional meat.  We will also find ourselves returning to this amazing restaurant for a meal or two.

    They now have a very nice English menu with dishes that were previously only available to people who can read Japanese.
