Marugo: Possibly The BEST Tonkatsu Restaurant in Tokyo


Tonkatsu is a really popular tonkatsu restaurant located in Akihabara. It's a little more expensive than average but the quality is outstanding.

Feel free to follow favy!

Marugo 丸五

Marugo is without a doubt one of the most popular restaurants in Tokyo for tonkatsu (deep-fried pork cutlets). It is also one of the most famous restaurants located around the Akihabara Station. It takes a 4-minute walk from the Denkigai Exit of the Akihabara Station to get there.
Because Marugo is extremely popular, it's not uncommon to see queues forming in front of the restaurant. Most people report having to wait around 20 minutes before getting in.


Toku Roast Katsu [¥1850]

This one is the most popular item to order. The meat is about 2-centimeter thick, and the outer coating is super crispy which contrasts perfectly with the juicy, tender meat inside. If you've ever had tonkatsu, you will know the difference in quality the moment you try it.

Toku Fillet Katsu [¥2,100]

The fillet katsu is the most expensive thing on the menu but is incredibly thick and juicy. Many people consider it their favourite. It comes with a sauce and karashi mustard.

Fried Shrimps [¥1,850]

The huge "Banana Shrimps" are the most popular item aside from the pork katsu. They come with a soy-based sauce and a tartar sauce.
