Kimukatsu and the 25 Layers of Mille-Feuille Katsu
Allow me to present to you another Japanese Restaurant that serves Tonkatsu but worry not as this is not the usual katsu that you see. Presenting Kimukatsu and their 25 Layers of Mille-Feuille Katsu!
So what does Mille-Feuille mean and how does it differ from our usual katsu? From my understanding, after consulting with Wikipedia, Mille-Feuille is a pastry that originated from France and is made up of layers. So if we apply that to Kimukatsu, then we should be expecting a katsu with layers too.
…. and guess what, that’s exactly what we saw and here we have a close-up of their Mille-Feuille Katsu.
Also, the layered katsu comes in 7 different flavors (that unfortunately I wasn’t able to try) which would be plain, garlic, black pepper, cheese, negi shio (spring onions), yuzu kusho (yuzu fruits and green chili pepper) and ume shiso (sour plum and shiso leaf).
But wait! There’s more as they also have the premium kurobuta version of their Mille-Feuille Katsu.
Taste-wise, how do they differ from other katsus? On my first bite, I immediately noticed that it was juicy! As my teeth sank softly into each layer, I would taste a juicy flavor that envelops the katsu taste. Although they have dipping sauces for their kimukatsu, I prefer to eat it on its own so that I could really savor the taste and enjoy it.
Among the different flavors, I was only able to try the plain and the cheese version (best seller).
We also had the following:
Rice and yummy and creamy egg topped with Kimukatsu.
Reminds me of the Katsu-Sando of Ginza Bairin; though I prefer Ginza Bairin’s version.
Kimukatsu also serves tonkatsu that hasn’t been Mille-Feuilled so you can choose your pick from Rosu that also has a Kurobuta version, Hire, Menchi and Chicken.
I would like to go back in order to try out all seven flavors so who wants to join me and share the bill?
