Hong Kong Bites: Sobaten Tonkatsu
Since LY and CY brought me to this wonderful tonkatsu place, I’ve had cravings and dreams about eating deliciously crispy deep fried pork chops. They are as good as it gets in Hong Kong, you get unlimited refills for the salads and miso soup and you have a choice of wheat rice (barley grains) and normal grains.
I chose a set with an additional tempura. :)
They’ve got a branch in Singapore as well, I’m definitely taking my parents the next time I’m home. Our bill came up to less than 200HKD per person.
I still wonder about the name “saboten” because it means cactus in Japanese, and how does that relate to deep fried goodness, Tonkatsu? A quick search on their website, it relates to the owner’s vision “to build a shop full of vitality, one that would survive even in the harshest conditions.” Hmm okay. Word. Best tonkatsu I’ve had in a very long while.
