とんかつ 和幸 横浜ポルタ店/ Tonkatsu Wakou

IMG_5497This is the Yokohama station branch of a tonkatsu chain restaurant, I think the same chain I get bentos from sometimes at the supermarket.  This branch seems busy but probably never too much of a wait.  It’s really good; I only hesitate because most tonkatsu places are decent, and I wouldn’t come here from Tokyo or Yokosuka just to eat here.  There were several foreigners when we went, and while I don’t remember an English menu it’s a pretty simple menu with pictures and such.

有名トンカツチェーン店。
ヒレカツが好きです。
ガッツリメニューも少量メニューもあるので自分のお腹の好き具合により選べます!
キャベツがお代わりできるのが良いですね^^*

A highly ranked restaurant on Tabelog, we went 30 minutes before closing (they’re only open for lunch for a few hours), to find that they were already sold out of a fair number of dishes, including the regular katsu, hire-katsu, and curry side dish, so we went with the rosu-katsu.  There was a short line.  We bought our tickets first, and while we waiting two people came right after closing time but they still let them in.  The katsu came with TONS of cabbage and we were plenty full at the end.  It is a specialty restaurant with limited seating, and there were even signs saying not to talk on your phone.  The people next to us asked the chef if they could take pictures of the food.  And the food was delicious.  I don’t have a particular reason why it’s not a 2 thumbs up- I guess it’s a bit out the way at least from where I am, a bit of a walk from the station, plus the line and the short hours.  And it’s not super cheap, but definitely worth it.  If you want to try katsu and can only go once, see if you can make it here.

閉店ぎりぎりで行ったけど少し並び入店。
先に食券を買うシステム。
もうロースしか残ってなかったのでロースを注文。
ちょっと恐そうなおじさんが経営しているトンカツ屋さんで決まり事が多い気がしましたが
話をしているのを聞いていると意外と優しそうで一安心。
ロースは脂が多いなと感じましたが確かに美味しい!!
今度はヒレ食を食べてみたい☆☆
