Tonkichi, Revisited ♥ ♥ ♥

My favorite part of a tonkatsu meal (after the eating part, of course) is the grinding of the sesame.
 I do it ever so slowly, savoring the nutty smell it releases, the course texture under my pestle,
exercising stupendous amount of patience until they bring out the pork. It is quite therapeutic.


Lol. :D

Okay, I was lying. When eating with me, you cannot order pork only. I want everything on the menu.
The prawns, the oysters, the pork loin, the pork fillet. Everything. Including the free items not on the
menu, like the unlimited cabbage and rice. Yummers forever!



The pork is tender, the prawns succulent, the oysters creamy, the cabbage oh so fine!

But the most beautiful thing about eating at Tonkichi is, no matter how much fried food I've consumed, there are no icky feelings afterwards. Icky feelings include: 1. the sick feeling from ingesting too much oil, 2. guilt, and 3. resentment for oneself. But do not necessarily include the horrific shock that passes through my whole body and soul when I face my mortal enemy - The Weighing Scale.

Or The Mirror.

*Insert shudders and expletives here* 



But since there are no signs of antagonists in the room, I enjoy my fried bounty peacefully.
Heck, even the chopsticks at Tonkichi taste good! :)
