You’d think that deep-fried beef would get soggy in transit, but the panko-breaded burger from Katsu always stays nice and crisp, even when covered in Japanese curry sauce or nori ranch. These sandwiches are straight-up mountainous, but extremely satisfying when you’re in the mood for eating an entire meal that came from a fryer basket.
The fifth Katsu Burger in Seattle (this one’s in Ballard) has the usual panko-breaded burgers and nori fries, but it’s also the first location to be full-service. In addition to the burgers, you’ll find sushi (yes, some rolls are fried) and bento boxes. There’s even an omakase option that starts at $22 for eight pieces.
