Kyoto Katsugyu 京都勝牛 

Gyukatsu is delicious deep fried cutlets of beef, and is a very popular dish in Japan!
The beef used is rare and is the most flavorful and tender part of the roast. Katsugyu is proud to serve their signature dish: beef that was deep fried for 60 seconds.
You can try it with soy sauce and wasabi, with pepper or even with a half-cooked egg on top. No matter how you eat them, these beef cutlets are delicious.
Kyoto Katsugyu is originally from Kyoto and has 6 branches in Kyoto alone, and 19 in Tokyo! I think it's safe this restaurant is really popular in Japan!
This is the type of resto where you can easily go by yourself to grab a delicious meal but there is often a huge line-up so be prepared to wait.


The beef cutlets are by far the most popular item on the menu, and you can choose what size you want.
A 160g portion of beef is 1,580 yen, 130g is 1,380 yen, and 100g is 1,280 yen.
The suggested way to eat is to first have it with soy sauce and wasabi.
Next, with Japanese pepper & salt.
Then, with Worcester sauce. After, dipped in curry sauce, and then in a soft boiled egg.
Which way do you prefer?
You can also try the tasty beef croquettes.


If you want to try a beef cutlet specialized restaurant originally from Kyoto, you are sure to find a branch near you in Tokyo, or anywhere in Japan for that matter!
