Niigata Prefecture is home to one of the five ports of Minato-machi, known for its delicious Western cuisine. One dish that stands out in particular is the Tare Katsu-don, a simple yet scrumptious meal featuring thinly sliced, deep-fried pork cutlets coated in a sweet-savory soy sauce glaze, served over perfectly cooked rice. This dish, which combines the classic soy sauce flavor of Japan with the Western-style pork cutlets, is a Niigata original.
The Tare Katsu-don is all about simplicity and quality. The pork cutlets are made from nutritious Waton Mochi-buta pork, while the sauce is made from high-quality, organic soy sauce infused with natural yeast, sugar, and special broth. The rice is 100% Niigata-grown Koshiibuki, cooked slightly firm, adding the perfect texture to the dish. No additional ingredients, such as egg or shredded cabbage, are added, allowing the true flavors of the dish to shine through.
Experience the unique blend of Western and Japanese cuisine with the Tare Katsu-don, a Niigata original dish that is sure to delight your taste buds.
