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.
