i've had a lot of katsu in my day. i was raised on a Japanese/Korean influenced diet for all my life... so i know what to expect with Donkatsu (original Katsu) & Chicken Katsu. it's not big or fancy... it's not meant to be. i kind of like it that way.

the Donburi's (meat, egg and rice dish) are decent... but while you're here... you might as well indulge in some katsu-goodness! from organic meats to authentic platters- it makes me feel like i'm getting a great value on such fabulous eats.

the Crab Croquettes were creamy and heavenly. all you would hear me say was, "mmmm" "oh my gawwwd" "mmmm" throughout my meal. my chicken kastu was perfection. a little cutlet, but it's cheap and comes with curry. i seriously had NO complaints whatsoever. i was a very happy patron.

Katsu. just get the Katsu. airy, crispy and suuuuuuper moist meat (OMG, that sounded a little naughty!) inside.

Where I eat out most often is here, Katsuhama. Every time I come here, I feel like I'm in Japan. The Katsu they serve is great. My favorite is the dressing for cabage. I often take my friends who are not Japanese to here. The funny thing is that 100% everyone likes here  and they often come back. I think Katsu is getting catch up sushi as signiture Japanese food.

We originally wanted to try the Midtown Menkui Tei. Closed! Unclear if they’re permanently or temporarily closed. Oh well, at least we got to see their bright yellow awning that says “Larmen New York”. Thankfully, Menchanko Tei was about a block away. Menchanko Tei has merged with their Japanese neighbor, Katsuhama, and the menu now carries both katsu and ramen.

Menchanko Tei, Katsuhama

The entrance and interior of Menchanko Tei/Katsuhama is very similar to Hide-Chan. I’ve never been to Tokyo (the airport doesn’t count), but it feels like you’ve been transported to a ramen shop in Tokyo. Lovely space. Late lunch with my favorite guy, ramen, katsu and beer. I couldn’t be happier.

John ordered one of the pork katsu dishes ($16), which came with a cabbage salad, miso soup, pickled veggies and rice. The breading was perfect, but the katsu was a little greasy for me. Menchanko Tei, Katsuhama - Pork Katsu

They also brought out a small mortar and pestle with freshly toasted sesame seeds. It was fun to grind them up and sprinkle over the katsu or soup.Menchanko Tei, Katsuhama

Menchanko Tei specializes in the classic hakata tonkotsu broth. Mmm yes, that wonderful creamy, porky broth. They have several variations: shiro tonkotsu, shoyu tonkotsu, black garlic tonkosu, spicy tonkotsu. I ordered the house special, the Aburi Tonkotsu Shoyu Chashu-Men ($14). The regular tonkotsu shoyu ramen is $11 and comes with classic pork loin charshu. The $3 upgrade includes four pieces of broiled pork belly! Menchanko Tei, Katsuhama - Aburi Shoyu Tonkotsu RamenI really enjoyed this blended broth. You get the best of creamy tonkotsu and the distinct flavor of a soy sauce broth. It’s rich, but complemented the rest of the ingredients. I added some sesame seeds to my ramen. A little surprised they didn’t already add some. The noodles were al dente, but softened more in the broth. Tasty bamboo with a bit of a crunch, unlike the sweet, mushy bamboo I recently experienced. The pork belly? Simply sinful. So fatty, but fatty in all the right ways, unlike the pork at a couple places I’ve visited. This pork belly was so juicy and flavorful, but it didn’t overwhelm the palate. A nice balance of ingredients, not too much broth or noodles.

A solid bowl of ramen to mark the end of 2012. Happy new year! In 2013, I will be pursuing vegetarian ramen options. Shocking, I know, considering how much I love porky goodness. Also, I’ve been busy with a fun personal project I like to call the 2012 Ramen Roundup. More on that soon!

 Katsu-Hama

  

Katsu-curry is the ultimate, decadent, Japanese comfort food. Katsu is a breaded, deep-fried piece of meat (usually pork), which is crisped to perfection. An ideal Katsu is crunchy on the outside whilst the meat on the inside is tender and melts in your mouth. It is served with oodles of thinly shredded cabbage and tonkatsu sauce.

Katsu Hama makes some killer Katsu!! Skip everything else the menu has to offer, just order the Katsu. We tried a few appetizers like the cream croquette and the tamago, which were really awful.

The best of their offerings is the Kurobata Pork Katsu though their regular pork tenderloin and even the chicken ones were really good.

I love the combination of Katsu with curry and the finely shredded cabbage, which they give you tons of, it adds great crunch to this already delicious dish.

Katsu-hama… pork cutlets o’rama!

    • 4.0

Dear Food Diary,
Katsu-hama has the juiciest pork cutlets I’ve tasted in midtown. Actually, dare I say in the city? The place is long and narrow, pass through the takeout sushi stand on your left, lift up the high hanging japanese curtains… and say hello to Katsu (Japanese Style cutlets) Heaven. You know it’s good when there’s always a line and 80% of them are japanese/asian.

Order the Tenderloin Katsu first if you’re a katsu virgin (fried pork cutlet). But the fun part starts before your meal even gets to you. While your waiting, you get a tiny bowl filled with toasted sesame seeds and a wooden spoon for you to crush. This obviously releases the flavor of the seeds. I prefer medium grated, i like to leave a couple seeds for extra crunch later on. (This is good for a day when your angry and you just want to crush someone! it’s a little added bonus) To the sesame I add about 2 spoonfuls of Tonkatsu Sauce (their homemade version of this dark sweet and sour sauce, which includes onions, tomatoes, apples and spices).

Now mouthwatering experience begins. The rice is steaming hot, and the pork cutlets are golden brown, cooked to perfection. Lightly fried and crunchy yet never greasy. The meat is always tender and juicy at just the right thickness. Dip it in the sesame and tonkatsu sauce and just enjoy. The order comes with cabbage salad, to that just add their homemade dressing, it’s a refreshing touch for your palette between a bite of the katsu and a bite of melt in your mouth rice. If you feel the rice to be bland, just ask for curry sauce on the side.

While tonkatsu shop in the United States, the store, which is to eat decent Japanese pork cutlet. And the drink is also Japan's beer, is your place free of even point is higher rice. Because if as mentioned drawback from the nearest subway station somewhat distant, be tough when tourism is coming to a store of have heavy luggage temple not a taxi. Price you can eat in the pork cutlet set meal is $ 20 or less
