Tonkatsu Specialist only at ION Orchard #Singapore Blogger



Who doesn't like thick, juicy and tender Tonkatsu (breaded, deep fried pork cutlet)? There are so many different versions of it that you can find in Singapore but I must say Ginza Bairin at ION Orchard is truly the Tonkatsu specialist who lived up to it's name. There is a reason why the brand has been around for more than 80 years. Ginza Bairin has five important components that makes a perfect Tonkatsu meal. Using pearl white Japanese rice, cottonseed oil, raw bread crumbs, signature home-made sauce since 1927 and premium meat. Who can withstand this delicious delicacy?


Out of the wide selections of dishes, I was first introduced to the Special Pork Katsu-don that was awarded as the Number One Katsu-don in Japan. I had high expectation of it when I knew it was claimed as the champion, definitely not easy to get this title. The moment it was served to my table I could not wait anymore and had to take my first bite immediately. It is so tasty! The flavour and juciness of the pork totally blew me away. Everything is just perfect. It is so good that I finished up without leaving a single grain of rice behind.


As they are famous for their pork I was also invited to try another signature dish which is the Iberian Pork Loin Katsu. The Tonkatsu's thickness is amazing. It is prepared to a  standard thickness of 1.8cm which you will never find anywhere else. Using raw bread crumbs, it is fried to a beautiful golden brown that has a crispy texture, succulent and luscious. Drizzle with the home-made unique sauce that was passed down for three generations, what more can I ask for?
