Wako Donkasu has two locations, but one specialty: A Korean take on Japanese tonkatsu. That means you’ll find breaded cutlets (there are a few options, but the pork is the best), served with shredded cabbage salad, miso soup, rice, and a tangy sauce. The real difference here (besides the kimchi on the table) is that once you’ve ordered, they’ll bring out a small mortar and pestle with sesame seeds at the bottom, which you grind down before that tonkatsu sauce gets poured in, giving it a nutty flavor. The huge cutlets of pork are juicy and crunchy, and even if you only plan on eating half, you’ll still leave feeling sufficiently stuffed.
