Can you believe that you could now find teishoku in coffee shop? Thanks to Maruhachi for offering affordable Japanese foods around our neighbourhoods.

They have expanded to a few outlets recently, with one outlet located in Bukit Gombak area.

While they specialise with their curry and donburi, I’m quite surprised to see them serving teishoku as well. A traditional Japanese meal with tonkotsu set menu served with Japanese rice and miso soup.

The pork katsu was super crunchy and juicy and consider very cheap for only $11.80.

Serving restaurant quality Japanese Katsu in the heartlands at a wallet-friendly price! While I felt nothing extraordinary about the rice, the slab of chicken katsu was definitely the highlight. Unlike the usual breaded crispiness, the use of panko for its batter contributed a contrastingly light crisp to the juicy chicken meat. Curry here was tasty and the spice flavour but leaned towards the watery consistency. Still quite decent for a neighborhood katsu place.

If you're a fan of curry, their 𝗖𝘂𝗿𝗿𝘆 𝗥𝗶𝗰𝗲 also arrives doused in a deluge of moreish curry blessed by a pleasant twinge of sweetness — textbook Japanese, really.

While plain and simple is my preferred style for tonkatsu, I am also partial to their 𝗦𝗽𝗲𝗰𝗶𝗮𝗹 𝗣𝗼𝗿𝗸 𝗞𝗮𝘁𝘀𝘂 𝗗𝗼𝗻 ($12.80) which introduces velvety egg texture that plays a perfect foil to the pork cutlets.

Stunningly good 𝗞𝘂𝗿𝗼𝗯𝘂𝘁𝗮 𝗞𝗮𝘁𝘀𝘂 𝗦𝗲𝘁 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 — 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.

Visited Maruhachi Donburi & Curry 2 days in a row. This time round, I ordered the katsu don topped with eggy and tender panko-crusted pork cutlet, sautéed onions simmered in dashi-sweet soy sauce & a runny onsen egg. Sinful and yummy!
