    I love it I love it I love it.. The TonKatsu or Rosu Katsu is super duper marvelicious......

    It is one of the best pork cutlet I ever had.. the meat is tender and juicy what more the crust crispy and not oily... If you like something more heavy, try the cheesy tonkatsu.... Its super nice.. Melted Cheese atop a beautifully fried juicy loin with a glimming golden crust and sprinkled with some bright orange fish roe..... *Slurp*...... I love it best with alot of thick sourish sauce.. I don't know what its called but it do taste abit like plum sauce...... Wonderful dish to go with the yummy rice.

    I think its an interesting place too, as i was never given roasted sesame in a grinding bowl for garnishing on top of my bowl of pearl grained rice. It comes with a bullish stick when u just move round and round the bamboo stricken bowl.. Be careful not too grind too much as you might want to retain a little crunchiness of the roasted sesame.. The wonderful aroma of sesame just made the whole dining more then perfect.

    There is also a bed of cabbage underneath your fried pork... Its crunchy and does not have that wierd cabbage taste... I love to pour alot of the other sauce.. which is sourish like vinagratte, housed in a glass bottle... I love the cabbage with lots of sauce.. For a non-cabbage eater to a cabbage gobbler..... you can imagine how yummy it was....

    For those who needs more fibre in their diet, this is the place to dine at as you can ask for unlimited servings of cabbage top ups..... Eat as much as you can.. and I love their genorisity as at every refill.... They give you a mountain of cabbage... Its just such a fullfilling thing to be served a great portion.....

    If you can.. try the coffee jelly as well... Its something very exquisite.. Served in short glasses... These KOPI O Jello comes with a drizzle of sweeten milk ontop... As you scoop into the jello... you could taste the sweet milk yet the clashing bitterness of the jello. As you mix them in your mouth.. you will get to experience the extraordinaire of coffee with milk together yet apart.....

    The set meals comes in huge servings.. good enough to serve 2 for average female diners... Its a must try for all those jap food lovers....

    Tonkichi Restaurant is a Japanese Restie situated in Isetan Scotts itself. It's on Level 4 where you find the household items. :) It was a little tricky to locate at first.

    The ambience Pretty much normal. It was quiet this Monday afternoon. So I was really comfortable with that. The decor is the conventional Jap sorts, though it doesn't require you to kneel on the floor. Better for gatherings than romantic dates I'd say though. Good for business meetings where they have booths at the side for more privacy.

    Food Ordered (All listed below were sets served with rice) Oyster Fry Prawn and Crab Chicken Teriyaki Ju (mine) Shoyu Rosu (pork) Katsu Dory (Fried fish curry)

    I had the Chicken Teriyaki Ju. Honestly I didn't find it fantastic. It was better than some places I've been to but not the best certainly. The rice was good, soft and sticky. Just the way it should be. The chicken was crisp and well covered in the teriyaki sauce. The sauce was pretty much like those you find in the supermarkets but it wasn't diluted (at least). It was going for $18 complete with the appetizer which I refused to try because the meat didn't look like chicken ( I only eat chicken and fish) and miso soup (of course.)

    My other companions didn't have any problems with their food. I tried some of the pork tenderloin. It was ok, but had some fatty bits in it which is the reason why I try to stay away from pork. They all loved the oyster fry though. Could see that it looked really good though I couldn't have it today as my skin was acting up.

    The service The staff was quite alert, filling up our cups time and again. But then the restaurant was pretty empty so that would have been expected. The tea was barely warm so it turned cold really fast. But everyone was all smiles and they were very polite so that was good.

    The damage $111 for 5 people. I would say reasonable at about $22 per person.
