Tonkatsu by Ma Maison

This place can give Tonkichi a run for its money. The Hungary Mangalica pork katsu is their specialty, and it did not disppoint. Fat, succulent and tender. The crumbs were well fried and of good quality, and the pork went excellently with the salt and tonkatsu sauce. The multi-grain rice was also a surprisingly healthy and delicious addition to balance off such an unhealthy main dish. Typically, free flow of rice, soup and lettuce. The oyster on the other hand was just acceptable; nothing spectacular about it, but I guess so far hard to find excellent fried tonkatsu-style oysters in Singapore. The best kaki is still in this little store in Uedo, Tokyo. Service was acceptable, but price is a bit on the steep side which is what it has going against it compared to Tonkichi.

Update (30 June 2012): Had the jumbo ebi. It sure is big. But the batter is also really thick. The prawn itself lacked the crunch and freshness of good seafood. Oysters were still just so-so.

Verdict: Good, delicious tonkatsu that is on the pricey side. Stick to the pork.
