Ginza Bairin

Like Maisen, the tonkatsu at Ginza Bairin is textbook: juicy pork that’s been pounded exactly the same width, then rolled in crispy panko breadcrumbs and fried; served with garnishes of thinly-sliced cabbage and an optional sweet sauce – sort of like a version of worcestershire that’s been lightly sweetened – this classic dish is a must if you’re in Ginza, and want to avoid the high-priced temples of sushi. Definitely a spot for locals.
