1. Motomura (牛カツもと村）
The first restaurant is Motomura. This one is usually referred as the restaurant that made gyukatsu famous in Shibuya. In holidays and busy time, people wait for 2 hours to eat this gyukatsu.
The restaurant fries the beef for only 1 minute, which makes the gyukatsu rare and soft. The best way to eat this gyukatsu is to eat it with wasabi. It is delicious! Also, the restaurant is open fron 11 A.M. until 11 P.M. with approximate cost of ￥1000~￥1999, so you can go in anytime and eat a good gyukatsu with decent price.
2. Kato Gyukatsu Shibutsu (加藤牛肉店シブツウ)
This restaurant is not only Gyukatsu restaurant, they serve various beef-based dishes. All the dishes' beef is Yamagata Beef, which is a famous and expensive Japanese beef like Kobe beef.
Its well-done filet Gyukatsu has fabulous taste. It is juicy, and the fat of Yamagata beef and soy sauce match up well with white rice. You have to be careful about the lunch time since it is not open for lunch on Monday, Friday, and Saturday. If you want to enjoy Gyukatsu with decent price, you should go for lunch time because it only costs about ￥2000. Dinner time, you can enjoy course meal of various Yamagata beef dishes.
3. Kyoto Katsu Gyu (京都勝牛）
Originally, the food Gyukatsu came from the city Kyoto, and brought into Tokyo recently. The last restaurant is Kyoto Katsu Gyu serves Kyotostyle Gyukatsu.
The difference about Kyoto Gyukatsu is that they eat it with beaten egg. Eating with wasabi ans soy sauce is delicious, but with beaten egg it's fantastic too. This is a great place to try beaten egged Gyukatsu with great price of ￥2000.
Gyukatsu is sometimes thought to be same as beef cutlets, but it is quite different. Cutlet uses completely powdered Breadcrumbs, where Gyukatsu use rough unpowdered breadcrumbs. Also, cutlet is fried in a pan with some oil while Gyukatsu is completely deep fried in the oil. Beef cutlet is a great food, but Gyukatsu is delicious too and worth a try!
