How to identify a “real” Japanese restaurant? Simple! Eat where the Japanese eat, as they obviously know what’s the real deal.
Katsu Shin かつ真 is a small 3-storied Japanese restaurant at Surawong Road, Silom, popular with many Japanese diners. There were a Japanese family, a group of Japanese businessmen, some Japanese teenagers during lunch time. I am sold, even before I taste their food.
As I was dining with D’s colleagues, I kept photo-taking to the bare minimum.
Their tonkatsu is crumbylicious. I ordered Hire Katsu set (240 baht) a 150g deep fried pork tenderloin set. I especially like that all customers get a saucer full of sesame seeds with its own mini-pestle, for them to crush and grind sesame seeds and top up with tonkatsu sauce.
