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.
