Pork cutlets are probably my favourite meat when it comes to Japanese food. When I went to Tokyo in 2012, I remember having a fast food place called Hotto Motto. For $5 cad, you could have the best Katsudon experience ever. I’ve since wanted to find something that came close to that.
Saku is a Japanese cutlet specialty restaurant. They serve pork cutlet in a variety of ways but the menu is streamlined to provide the best experience. They have cheese cutlet, original fried cutlet, cutlet in broth, and a couple other varieties.
I ordered cutlet in broth because I like it moist instead of extra crispy.
The taste was good, they have the Olive Garden service, unlimited salad and soup. The sesame dressing for the salad is very good!
Cutlet, it wasn’t a 10/10, maybe a 8/10. Broth in the soup was good, definitely had that Katsudon pop in it. Price, it’s a pricey meal for what it is, but with unlimited soup and salad, it’s an ok deal.
It’s a nice spot to bring a date, decor is nice and bright, service is excellent. Would I come back? Most likely.
