Katsu is a breaded and fried pork or chicken cutlet, and it’s a traditional Japanese dish usually served with rice and shredded cabbage. Ima Katsu is hands-down our favorite spot for katsu because they manage to keep things juicy and crispy without being dry or overly fried and greasy. It sounds simple, but finding the right balance can be tough, and Ima Katsu has it down to a science. You want their chicken tenderloin, but consider getting a mixed platter so you can try both their menchi (minced) and rosu (loin) cuts of meat too.
