Ginza Bairin (銀座梅林)
Ginza Bairin is a well-known tonkatsu and katsudon restaurant in Ginza, 3 minutes walk from Ginza station. It has as long as 90 years of history serving delicious tonkatsu (Japanese pork cutlet) dishes.
They have a lot of counter seats as well as table seats. They have been popular with all groups of people coming from near and far.
Their No.1 Menu is "special katsudon" (2000 yen). The founder of the restaurant created this dish to satisfy the customers' appetite even more!. It comes with miso soup and pickled vegetables.
What makes their katsudon special is this fried egg on the top (Katsudon usually doesn't have it). The pork cutlet is simmered in a soup with a beaten egg, so this dish consists of two eggs.
Time to eat
First of all, enjoy the juicy tonkatsu which is made from a selected Japanese pork fillet. The outside is crispy, yet it also soaked up the broth.
Then, poke the yolk! They only use selected, very fresh eggs!
The rich egg yolk goes well with the delicious tonkatsu and savory sauce. It is truly addictive.
