A few more photos of the wonderful Tonki, as featured in my Japan Times column this week. Open 73 years and counting, it really is a one-of-a-kind.
This is the kushi-katsu teishoku set meal (meaning it comes with rice, tonjiru soup and pickles). Many people order the kushi-katsu separately — as a side dish to go with their tonkatsu.
The bright, gleaming kitchen takes up more than half of the downstairs floor area...
The chefs are dressed head-to-toe in white.
Each katsu takes 20 minutes to prepare, from the time you place your order.
The menu is short and to the point — and available in English.
A Tokyo all-time classic.
