If you're a fan of curry, their ๐—–๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฟ๐˜† ๐—ฅ๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ also arrives doused in a deluge of moreish curry blessed by a pleasant twinge of sweetness โ€” textbook Japanese, really.

While plain and simple is my preferred style for tonkatsu, I am also partial to their ๐—ฆ๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ฎ๐—น ๐—ฃ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ธ ๐—ž๐—ฎ๐˜๐˜€๐˜‚ ๐——๐—ผ๐—ป ($12.80) which introduces velvety egg texture that plays a perfect foil to the pork cutlets.

Stunningly good ๐—ž๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—ฏ๐˜‚๐˜๐—ฎ ๐—ž๐—ฎ๐˜๐˜€๐˜‚ ๐—ฆ๐—ฒ๐˜ for just $15.80, way below market rate at similar-quality restaurants. The catch is that they are a hawker stall. This hidden gem is relatively new but has a deep history โ€” the chef actually headed Ginza Bairin at ION, now defunct but used to be my go-to for tonkatsu.

It's easy to fall in love with their signature katsu, seducing with titillatingly orange robes of ragged ridges. They let out the most melodious of crackles as your incisors clamp down on the airy pockets between the crispy panko debris. Once through, you're greeted by a tender but assertive recoil that is just sublime.

Possibly the best value for money you can get for tonkatsu around SG, along with Hajime. Its ensemble of Japanese rice, tonkatsu sauce, mustard, and miso soup even trumps that of stalwarts like Tonkichi. Of course, don't expect a culinary revelation for $15 but this is a stall that punches significantly above their price point.

Randomly chanced upon this old school establishment, and I was pleasantly surprised!

The ๐—ฑ๐˜‚๐—ฐ๐—ธ ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ ($4) was fluffy, moist and bathed in a rich and charmingly sweet herbal sauce. ๐Ÿฆ†Meat was decently tender and not gamey at all. Tying it together was a tangy-sweet chili that was a match made in heaven with that rich herbal profile.

Overall pretty good, and comparable to Chuan Kee IMO. Would return for dine in some time.๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ
