Wagokoro Anzu Tonkatsu あんず, Ginza

After a tiring day shopping at Ginza, we decided to head to the Mitsukoshi Department Store to look for a decent dining place before heading home.

A quick restaurant scan lead us to Anzu Tonkatsu. Honestly, at that time, we didn't know if it was any good, but them having an English menu easily reeled us in.

I later found out that Anzu Tonkatsu is a well-known restaurant with branches in Fukuoka, Tokyo, Taipei, and Seoul.

They have two Tonkatsu sauce varieties, the regular and spicy.

I didn't find much difference between the two though.

Complimentary cold salads were served to everyone. I recall how I really appreciated this compared to other Tonkatsu shops where they would serve it along with the main meal. Since I was starving that time, I believe I had my fill of two bowls.

Salad's made more fun with the unlimited pouring of Yuzu and creamy sesame dressings. The combination of sesame and mayo livened my taste buds and had me pouring more than what I needed.

The second dressing Yuzu, is made from the Yuzu fruit, which is similar to our dalandan. Adding this gave the cold salad a refreshing tangy kick.

Sesame grinders!

Our meals came with a hearty miso soup.

These seaweeds are what I look forward to in Miso soups.

Deep Fried Prawn and Pork Cutlet Meal
I didn't get to take a photo of everyone's meals except mine and Nikko's. He got the Pork Loin Meal Set, and had the option to get white rice or brown rice.

Here's a close cross-section shot of the lean, juicy pork cutlet. 

I had curry-based meals as much as I could when we were in Japan. One of Nikko's brothers immediately recommended the Deep Fried Pork Loin Curry to me when he spotted it.

The sauce was very chunky, and I loved the strong potato smell of it. 

With subtle spicy flavours, it was easy for me to clean off my plate, rice and all. I fell in love with this dish from start to finish. 

Here are some pages of their menu:

Next door, there was this old man hand-cutting Udon noodles. If we had another chance to dine here at Mitsukoshi, we'd definitely come try this out.
