Tonkatsu dinner

A trip to Tokyo is not complete without a visit to a tonkatsu restaurant. Tonkatsu is a dish consisting of breaded pork that is then fried. So naughty but so nice! I went with my friend Tatsuya who is a bit of fiend when it comes to ordering. He went a bit over the top with the variety of choices, but they were all good. The cultlets are tender and crispy and served with shredded cabbage and sesame seeds. The seeds are handed to you  with a pestle and mortar which you use to crush the sesame seeds. You then pour a layer of thick tonkatsu sauce over the cutlet, followed by the sesame seeds. Needless to say, I will not be not be needing to eat for a few days....
