Tonkatsu

Categorised in: | Link of this article

I always ask my cooking class guests about what their favorite Japanese food beyond Sushi, Tempura and Ramen. One of the popular dish among my guests is Tonkatsu (とんかつ、トンカツ、豚カツ…Yes, they all mean the same dish!) “Ton” means pork, “Katsu” means Cutlet. I understand that some of you cannot eat this dish because of food restrictions and religious reasons. But no worries! You can substitute with beef, chicken, seafood or even vegetables! The recipe to make cutlet is almost same, so please enjoy this crispy savory dish. The tip of making delicious Tonkatsu is to use Japanese bread crumbs called panko and put Tonkatsu in a pan before frying oil gets hot! For the sauce, people usually pour special Tonkatsu sauce. This is Japanese-style thick and starchy sauce made of worcester sauce etc. Since Tonkatsu is such an oily dish, don’t forget to add some vegetables aside (Usually, thinly shredded cabbage here in Japan). Enjoy Japanese cooking!

Food Research in Hong Kong

I visited Hong Kong 🇭🇰 and Macau 🇲🇴 with my family last week. (My husband had a business there so my son and I joined!)
It’s been almost 8 years since I visited there last time. Amazed to see so many good and cozy coffee shops and vegetarian/vegan cafes in Hong Kong Island area.
In Macau, we felt something new insights and learned interesting data about Chinese market.
We ate a lot as you might see on my private account (@yuca_private).
It was really a good research trip with my family!
