銀座梅林 Ginza Bairin – Tokyo

I have heard from many people that this is the best Tonkatsu in Tokyo.  It’s hard to top Tonki, but let’s see if Ginza Bairin can do it.

It’s quite busy, even in the middle of the day. It’s not that big inside, and I wanted to have the counter seats – that’s where the action is. Here you can watch the action behind the counter as they bread and fry the Tonkatsu. Here is the set.  Tonkatsu, Rice, Pickles and Soup. Fried crispy, juicy on the inside and flavorful as anything.It’s good, there is no doubt.  The Tonkatsu is breaded with the Panko.  The difference between here and Tonki is that there is a layer that separates the breading from the pork at Tonki.

My final verdict, while great, Tonki is better for me.
