Tonkatsu (とんかつ), deep-fried pork cutlet, is a popular main dish in Japan. Something similar can be found in other parts of the world and the Japanese version can be liked by non-Japanese people as well.
Kimukatsu (キムカツ) is one of the best restaurants for tonkatsu in Tokyo. The way of cooking tonkatsu by Kimukatsu is known as "millefeuille" of meat. Like the French pastry pie cake "millefeuille", 25 pieces of pork thinned are piled up and become a piece of tonkatsu pork, while it is just a piece of pork meat at ordinary tonkatsu restaurants. After it is cooked in oil at Kimukatsu restaurant, the piece of tonkatsu is still soft and the juice of pork meat is kept in between the each slice of pork. That is the biggest difference of tonkatsu by Kimukatsu from any others.
