Cheap but excellent quality and fresh cooked Tonkatsu at Matsunoya
It is amazing, you can eat fresh fried pork loin cutlet dishes for 500 Yen and up. See the menu from Matsunoya.
Tonkatsu with roasted sesame aroma
Matsunoya pays attention for the quality of the ingredients, though its dishes are inexpensive. For example there is a small mortar with a wooden pestle on the tray. With it you can add a tasty sesame aroma to your Tonkatsu. Matsunoya offers also some seasonal flavour like Japanese basil.
Meal ticket vending machine with English information
Its ordering system is very friendly to the international tourists. You’ll buy your meal ticket at the vending machine at first. English information is also written.
Rice & Miso soup refill free, but be careful
If you need more rice or miso soup, it is good to know that rice and miso soup refill are free. But not all Matsunoya restaurants only self service style restaurants.
Be careful, the self style one is “松の屋” other one is “松乃家.” Both read Matsunoya. Be careful also for Katsudon, Katsudon is a rice bowl so rice refill is excluded.
