No43 [Restaurants] Restaurants in London that serve Tonkatsu

Tonkatsu is not yet popular enough in London for it to be advertised as the main draw for a restaurant. However, it plays a great supporting role to the main cuisine in several Japanese eateries, such as sushi restaurants, izakaya and ramen places. The style in which the tonkatsu is served varies greatly between establishments, with some opting for the simple, orthodox Japanese style presentation while others throw in a few surprises with sesame sauce, skewers with spring onion or pairing with sashimi to make luxurious tonkatsu bentos. One might even consider taking on the challenge of a London tonkatsu walking tour, trying out a different version at each place along the route?!
