Kimukatsu is the most famous pork cutlet restaurant in Japan, with multiple locations in Tokyo, Osaka, Yokohama, Sendai, etc.,    specializing in the Mille fieulle style, 25 layers of thinly sliced pork with different fillings.

I tried Kimukatsu at the East Wing of Shangri-La Plaza last week in preparation for my date with my son.  Rafael likes Japanese food so there's no other way for me but pick and choose which one will suit his taste.

I like tofu so I started with this it. Kimukatsu tofu is too soft my my taste though.

The rice comes in a insulated wood container, 
which I really like! I hope to find one to be used at home. 

I ordered for 7 flavor Kimukatsu, with flavors namely, Plain, Garlic, Black Pepper, Cheese, Negi Shio (spring onion and salt), Yuzu Pepper and Ume Shiso (sour plum and shiso leaf). 

I like that the pork is tender and juicy but I honestly find the taste all  the same, except for the pepper which made it spicy.   

The interiors are mostly black  and I find the place too dark. I had no choice but to wear my glasses

Kimukatsu didn't take me by surprise but it's all up to my Japanese-looking and Japanese-food-loving son to find out for himself on our date.
