Tokyo Kenkyo In Shibuya: Thick, Cheesy Katsu Sandwhich
Located at the halfway point between Shibuya and Daikanya, Tokyo Kenkyo serves a super thick katsu (pork cutlets) sandwich with melting mozzarella cheese.
Feel free to follow favy!
Huge sandwich with pork cutlets and cheese
If you're really hungry, this sandwich should hit the spot! This is a "katsu" sandwich, which means the filling is a deep-fried piece of pork cutlet. To make things even better, you get a nice amount of mozzarella cheese in the center of the meat!
You might have seen katsu sandwiches before but few compare to this one in thickness! It's made with the shoulder part of the pork, a cut that is pretty lean so it's actually not that heavy.
Bread from a famous shop
The bread that is directly delivered from the Tarui bread shop in Tokyo is excellent as well. Grilled to a nice golden brown, it has a tantalizing fragrance.
Sweet homemade sauce
The slightly sweet homemade sauce works so well to enhance the umami of the pork and cheese!
These are the dangerously addictive fries that come with the sandwich. I had never had such crispy fries before! They are pretty sweet too.
Tokyo Kenkyo is located right between Shibuya Station and Daikanyama Station in a residential area. The cafe looks like a house actually. It is in a stylish three-story building.
The restaurant specializes in sandwiches but there is an abundance of other items on the menu as well.
There is even a terrace that you can enjoy on the roof floor when the weather is nice. So it's not just about the food at Tokyo Kenkyo, also go there for the laid-back atmosphere.
