Food Porn- Katsu

9 Jul

Went to a famous Taipei katsu (Japanese fried pork) place, 杏子 (link here!). We got there at around 2pm on a Saturday and still had an hour wait. Good thing the restaurant is inside a mall so we didn’t have too difficult of a time killing time. (see what I did there? With my words? Time and time? ha, ok, not funny, ok, let’s move on).

Pickled shredded dikon

salty, tangy sauce

grapefruit katsu. katsu topped with mashed dikon and tons of scallions on top. with grapefruit on the side. Odd combination,  surprisingly refreshing.

Katsu. Pork thigh. Crunchy, flakey on the outside and incredibly juicy on the inside. It’s pretty amazing.

The whole set. Katsu, miso soup, perfectly cooked rice, and pickled cucumber. You bet it’s good.

I know you can’t taste it through these pictures, duh, but I must say the katsu was pretty amazing. Perfect crunch and the meat was so juicy. Fried pork cutlet sounds so easy to make but it’s absolutely difficult to make it so perfect. Sorry if this post made you hungry, but I guess it’s the point of “food porn”.
