10 Japanese Restaurants with Katsudon (and Booking Discounts!)


We’re not katsu-done eating yet!

Nothing is more disgusting (or more disappointing) than soggy fried food. Who can stand soggy french fries, soggy onion rings, or soggy tempura?

Soaking anything that’s been perfectly deep-fried is never a good idea… so why is katsudon so darn delicious? It’s impossible not to love katsudon which is why it’s often our go-to order at Japanese restaurants.

Juicy deep-fried pork cutlet and runny egg are cooked in a sweet and savory soy-dashi broth and placed over hot steamed rice. It shouldn’t work, but simmering the fried pork in a flavorful liquid only makes the breading tastier, while also steaming the eggs, keeping them nice and tender.

Here are 10 places in the Metro where you can enjoy this beloved Japanese dish. Make sure you download Booky because you can get as much as ₱500 off your bill at these partner restaurants:
