[Tokyo] Furaitei (ふらい亭): Renowned for Exquisite Tonkatsu near Komazawa Daigaku, Sangenjaya, and Gakugei Daigaku


Crisp Elegance: Furaitei’s Timeless Tonkatsu Treasures in Tokyo

Nestled in Tokyo’s Setagaya district, Furaitei is a tonkatsu gem, founded in 1946 and steadfastly upholding the traditions of its predecessors. Furaitei’s pork, sourced locally, imparts a delicate pink hue, ensuring a tender and flavorful experience for every patron.


The secret to their tonkatsu perfection lies in the meticulous blend of 100% raw breadcrumbs, offering a dual pleasure as both a delectable coating and standalone bread. With the use of 100% lard, Furaitei defies oxidation, embracing nutritional richness like oleic acid. This culinary alchemy results in a moist breadcrumb texture, maintaining its delectable crispness even as it cools.


Amidst their renowned offerings, the A-lunch steals the spotlight during lunch hours. This coveted set pairs a fillet cutlet with a shrimp fry, delivering a symphony of crispy exteriors and succulent interiors.
