Lemon Meringue Pie

Lemon Meringue Pie

I know this is supposed to be a blog about (primarily) meat-related food, but this is my favourite thing to eat in pretty much the world. Sour, sweet, soft and crispy. This is my perfect lemon meringue pie recipe, even though I’m sure it’d piss […]

Tonki | Perfect Tonkatsu in Tokyo

Tonki | Perfect Tonkatsu in Tokyo

1 Chome-1-2 Shimomeguro, Meguro, Tokyo 153-0064, Japan | map |

Oh, how I love the crispy deep fried pork that is Tonkatsu – one of Japan’s specialities.

We heard that Tonkatsu Tonki is one of the best places to eat these deep-fried beauties in Tokyo, so we headed down there for our first taste in Japan. Check out where else we ate at in Japan. We also highly recommend Katsukura, where they too know how to whip up a mean tonkatsu.
