No it’s TonKATSU.
I know they are spelled similarly, and I see people often use them incorrectly, even on the restaurant menu,
Tonkotsu is a type of ramen soup.
Tonkatsu is deep-fried pork.
Ton means pork, and Katsu means Panko-crusted deep-fried.
So I call this beautiful deep-fried tofu, T-Katsu.
And of course I have to serve it with julienned cabbage.
I don’t know why, but in Japan Katsu always comes with cabbage!
Completed with rice and soup.
Love my new blue-white plate.
It took me two visits to the store (and almost an hour on the second visit!), but I’m glad I came home with it.
