More from the Cafeteria Series! One of the most amazing foods that I love in Japan, but am incredibly meh about in states is Tonkatsu (とんかつ), aka deliciously breaded and deep-fried pork cutlets. Imagine my excitement when I found that they were in the cafeteria for only about 300-400 Yen… as opposed to it costing $10+ here!
This is the Katsu Salad Udon (カツサラダうどん). It is basically layered with cold udon at the bottom, thinly sliced lettuce in between and delicious, delicious katsu topped with scallions. I don’t remember if this katsu was made from chicken or pork, but either way, it was delicious. That dollop of yellow in the corner is something like mustard. It was probably unhealthy due to the deep-friedness of the whole thing, which is why this would get a 4/5 ★★★★☆. But I pretty much jumped at any chance to eat katsu in the cafeteria–that is how much I love it.
