[Tokyo] Tonkatsu Marushichi (とんかつ 丸七 深川不動店): Extra Thick and Meaty Yaki-Katsudon

Extra Thick and Meaty Yaki-Katsudon

Tonkatsu Marushichi is tucked away in an unassuming back alley in Monzen-Nakacho. Fondly referred to as Mon-Naka, this shitamachi (downtown) locale boasts a rich tradition of bars and izakayas. (Mon-Naka is less renowned for its Japanese confectionery and old-fashioned delicacies.) Mon-Naka thrived as a monzen-machi (temple town) due to its proximity to Tomioka Hachimangu and Fukagawa Fudodo. Mon-Naka is conveniently accessible from Ginza and Nihonbashi.

Tonkatsu Marushichi exclusively offers Yaki-Katsudon: a panko-breaded, deep-fried pork cutlet and a grilled egg roll served atop a bed of rice. Once assembled, the bowl is so generously filled that the lid can no longer be closed.

Dishes are meticulously prepared by proficient chefs while patrons observe in silent admiration. The substantial pork cutlets exhibit a delicate light pink hue. With each bite, the delectable fatty meat flavor gracefully inundates the palate. The egg rolls are fluffy, tender, and imbued with a delightful sweetness. A sweet and sour sauce, exuding an appetizing aroma, is generously poured over the cutlet and egg roll. At the counter, a diverse array of condiments awaits, allowing diners to further enhance the dish’s flavor.
