Japanese food comes in all shapes and forms. While we have covered quite a bite of sushi and ramen spots, here’s one where you can get perfectly deep-fried golden brown katsu or tonkatsu in KL or PJ. Today, we are letting you in on one of the best (and popular) spots in the city for Tonkatsu!
Here’s Where You Head To For The Best Japanese Tonkatsu In KL
Founded in 1976, Tonkatsu By Ma Maison has been voted one of the Top 10 Tonkatsu in Tokyo for its golden deep-fried pork cutlets. The tonkatsu specialist was later brought into the Klang Valley and has been a go-to spot for both Malaysians and the Japanese community. Known for its consistent quality meat cuts and authentic flavours, you are definitely missing out if you have not tried this spot yet! Read on to find out what you must try here.
You must be wondering, what makes the katsu here one of the best? They use special traditional Japanese aging meat technique where it seals the juices and flavours of the meat to ensure its tenderness. Then, it’s coated with their special nama panko (fresh breadcrumbs) imported from Japan, which was formulated exclusively for Tonkatsu By Ma Maison only. Making each of their katsu crispier to the bite and does not absorb so much oil. All that factors combine to make each katsu extremely tender when you cut through it to eat – it’s a completely new and positive meat experience!
Almost 40 Different Types Of Katsu Dishes To Choose From
The number one thing not to miss out on here is definitely their ever-popular Tonkatsu. Over here at Tonkatsu by Ma Maison, you can choose from Rosu Katsu (pork loin) or Hire Katsu (pork fillet). If you prefer a juicier alternative between the two, then Rosu Katsu is definitely your pick as it has layers of marbled fats. You can also dip it in their house-made sweet and spicy sauce with a side of rock salt.
Aside from that, their Wafu Negioroshi Rosu Katsu is also a crowd-favourite. Signature breaded deep-fried tonkatsu is topped with Negi oroshi sauce (white radish and spring onions) for a refreshing burst of flavours. Besides, they also serve Homemade Katsu Curry with the option of pork or chicken cutlet. Their sweet and savoury homemade Japanese curry definitely gives the meats an extra rich flavour with each bite!
Apart from pork and chicken, you can find seafood katsu here, from fish, oyster to jumbo prawns as well! Try all of them with their Seafood Set – which comes with deep fried white fish and your choice of prawns or oyster. Beautifully crumbled on the outside, fresh and succulent seafood on the inside.
Each Set Comes With Refillable Rice, Cabbage & Soup!
The refillable sides at Tonkatsu by Ma Maison really is the icing on the cake. All of their sets come with refillable Japanese steamed rice or multigrain rice, shredded cabbage, tonjiru (pork miso soup) and choice of hot green tea or iced Japanese barley tea. The pork miso soup is definitely one side you will definitely go for seconds (or thirds). Besides, they also give out complimentary fruit jelly when you dine in, while stocks last.
