All How Crits Travel

(Gourmet)[Tokyo,Japan]車站旁的平民吉列店いちかつ A down to earth katsu place

After saying goodbye to my bro Andrew, I head back to omotesando to grab a coffee then start shopping for my friends and family, and I was craving for some hot food, so I thought some katsu don will be great, my GPS just went crazy so I found a place not close to me but is like right next to a station, oh right, just do a random dinner and see how it goes.

與友人Andrew一別後,我先到表参道喝咖啡(另文),再幫家人好友做採購,因為很冷又想吃熱騰騰的食物,我想起了吃吉列,因為地圖胡亂定位,我找列了いちかつ,不在什麼大站,卻在駅旁,方便到不行!

Nothing fancy on the menu, pork loin, pork fillet, and a few seafood items, I got myself a pork fillet meal, small size, with ika (squid) and ebi (shrimp) plus a bottle or beer, I know it just cant go wrong!

餐牌很簡單,豬排,豬柳與幾款海鮮!我點了份豬柳定食,再加一件蝦與魷魚,再來一瓶啤酒,不很花巧!

Only bar counter is here, And a local only place (I was surprise they have an English menu to be honest), so I decided to sit down and look at the chef preparing for our meal, soak the meat In eggs, starch and breadcrumb with a little bit of message before they deep fried it, it was an awesome live performance.

只有吧檯與當地人,我安靜地望著師傅準備食物,沾粉沾雞蛋後,再埋在麵包糠按摩,才放在油鑊炸,師傅手勢熟練,呆在這裡欣賞,是件樂事!

I couldn’t believe a small portion means two fillet with like 4 inch wide each, the meat was tender and the sauce was really good, the shrimp is pretty good but I like the squid better, very nice texture, very tender in general but with a little bit of chewy texture, it was just awesome!

想不到份量也不少,小的豬柳定食也有兩塊豬柳!肉很鬆軟,沾上豬排汁吃很滋味!蝦吃下也很不錯,魷魚也有驚喜,吃下軟糯,口感很不錯呢!

The miso soup with clams, simple but pretty neat!

味噌湯是蜆味噌,一碗有很多蜆仔,實而不華!

 

My bill turns out to be 1820 yen, like 16 USD, I don’t think I can get a neat katsu don in hk with this price, I liked this place and is pretty easy to locate, so no doubt I will be back again, super value for money!

埋單1820円,我跟友人打趣香港吃一個日本吉列豬排飯也吃不到,這個價位與水準,CP值是很高沒錯了!
