Ichiriki Japanese Restaurant @ Gardens
Ichiriki Japanese Restaurant has taken over the place where Yogitree used to be, not very long ago; is a Japanese restaurant that specializes in tonkatsu. Tonkatsu is a popular dish, with pork cutlet breaded and deep fried into perfection, served along with shredded cabbage and the special thick Japanese Worcestershire dipping sauce for the deep fried cutlet.
Salmon Teriyaki and Kuro Buta (Rm 38)
This set comes with few side dishes such as eggplants with miso paste, salmon teriyaki and stewed pork and radish and the main character – Kuro Buta. Kuro Buta cutlets were crispy on the outside, tender and juicy inside and never left a hint of greasiness at all. Have it with the tonkatsu sauce (the Worcestershire dipping sauce with white sesame) or the mustard sauce if you fancy a hint of sharpness/spiciness. Each set comes with tsukemono (pickles), chawanmushi, miso soup, fluffy white rice and fruits and I do find it kinda reasonable for the price to pay.
Haccho Miso Katsu Set (Rm 27)
Deep fried breaded pork cutlet that has been flavoured with Haccho Miso, a type of slow fermented soybean paste with hint of saltiness. Love its flavour but the katsu never as juicy as the kuro buta.
Salmon & Shiro Maguro Don Set (Rm 25)
One word to describe this: fresh
Buta karaage Udon (Rm 16)
Comes with thick cut of pork slices on the udon in the clear broth. The pork slices were good but we don’t quite fancy that broth as it has a faint fishy taste.
