Satoshi and I were searching for something for dinner one day and found this sauce katsu by Meijitei, an eatery in Komagane, Nagano.

(Hankyu Department Store in Umeda was featuring various vendors from the Nagano area.)

Sauce katsu is when they pour their special tonkatsu sauce onto the cutlet.

Satoshi chose their assorted bento...fried shrimp & pork filets...1470 yen plus tax.

They weren't playing around with this bento, it was pretty stuffed!

I went with their pork filet sandwich...584 yen plus tax.

Even though this sandwich had a thin amount of shredded cabbage, I jazzed mine up with lettuce.

The sauce was a little sweet but also had a nice tang to it.

The pork filets were very moist and tender...yum!

Satoshi said that his shrimp was delicious too, not dried out as sometimes fried shrimp can be.

I'm glad the department stores bring in different items from around Japan as well as from the rest of the world, so we get a chance to try them.

What are you enjoying these days?

Wow, simple but looks utterly delicious to me!

I think they sell their katsu in some Tokyo Department stores Dennis, so you might want to add it to your list :)

Take care!

Found some gourmet mustards imported from the US, but first I need to get some hotdogs and buns to properly test the sauces out.
