Only 20 Dishes Served Per Month, Come Try The Special Katsu Curry At The Michelin Guide Introduced Ponchiken

Since 2015, Ponchiken continues to appear in the Michelin Guide every year! Due to its popularity, a line-up is inevitable during lunch hour. The katsu curry is only served 20 times per month. If you're lucky you'll get to try it!

Feel free to follow favy!

The Curry Takes 3 Days To Make And It Is Limited to 20 Dishes Per Month!

The specialty katsu curry ¥1,680.

This is the dinner size at 150g.

For lunch, the serving is 100g of katsu, and it is ¥1,250.

The curry takes 3 days to make and is only served 20 times per month.

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!

Since 2015, This Resto Appears In The Michelin Guide Every Year!

Only 3 minutes from Ogawamachi Station, Ponchiken is a hidden gem. This resto is highly popular among tonkatsu lovers and even appeared in the Michelin Guide every year since 2015. As it is a victim of its own success, be prepared to wait about an hour in line!
