Today, I visited “Tonkatsu Maruya Shimbashiekimaeten” which was very popular in Shimbashi. Probably because of this popularity, they had three shops in the area surrounding Shimbashi station. I arrived there at 11:00, its opening time. I could be in there without waiting but people were coming one after another right after its opening.
At the counter, I was surprised to see a menu showing that the price of pork loin katsu set was only ￥700. In addition, it was free for another helping of rice and miso soup. I knew the reason of its popularity.
Both batter and non-fatty meat were light and fresh. Your appetite would also be lured with sour taste of sauce. In case you are suffering from summer heat exhaustion, I strongly recommend you to try this one.
