The katsu is served over rice and is an impressively generous serving.

First, the katsu is fried at low temperature, then at very high temperature. The whole process takes about 6 minutes.

The katsu is made to be crunchy by using high-quality panko. The owner is very particular about this point to make sure the katsu are delicately crunchy.

The curry is made with minced meat in a keema curry. There are not many restaurants that serve katsu curry made with keema curry.

The owner likes spicy food and prepares the dish in consequence. Come try this addictive dish for yourself!
