Saturday, we reconnected with Katsuretsu-tei.
This tiny katsu (cutlet) shop was one of the first places we tried when we moved to Ishibashi in 2001 (pre-blog).
Yup, it's been THAT long since we went back...
Satoshi ordered their mix fry (an assortment of fried items...fish, shrimp & pork).
This came with a salad, miso soup and rice.
When the weather is warm, I don't really like soup, so I ordered the chicken katsu curry with cheese and a mini salad.
Man, that salad was huge! a whole cucumber and tons of cabbage.
The curry was huge too.
I don't remember the servings being that huge...I do have a feeling that it is due to the fact that we live near the Osaka University.
Most eateries like to cater to the students by giving a lot of food for a reasonable price.
While this was delicious, the katsu cooked perfectly and the cheese oozy. I realize that I enjoy a lighter batter coating.
Satoshi helped me eat most of this...we'll be back, but next time we're sharing...
