There was always a long long queue outside the shop and it was very seldom that I agreed to line up for food, which turned out to be absolutely worthy.

Fun to prepare the sauce where u grind down your sesame seeds and add one of the selections of sauces. There is also a nice tangy dressing for the cabbage and a pot of pickles. We had a set that had pork katsu with unlimited refills of rice, cabbage and miso.

I loved the food and they give instructions on the sauces and everything so you don’t embarrass yourself! A bit pricey but then again it was tasty. The miso blew my mind!

I was not familiar with this way of preparation but stepped into this lovely unassuming place just looking for something to eat. I have now been here twice. The pork tenderloin is delicious as are the prawns. The staff is very helpful showing you what to do to prepare tge dipping sauce.

This lovely place is set back from the main shopping thoroughfare and is accessed by a small wooden door, along a cobbled alley. It’s beautifully set out and the service is friendly, the pork katsu is delicious too but there are just a couple of small things which for me meant I couldn’t rate it as highly as my favourite place. Firstly there were so many “bits” in the miso it was more like a hotpot, all Manet of vegetables and seemingly ten pieces of tofu and secondly I didn’t know what to make of the dressing for the cabbage, slightly oily and with an odd aftertaste. Would go back but not in a rush to do so.
