Yay! Welcome back!

Is that a mini or regular?

Either way, $3.95 is a really good price for it.


Is the sauce thick or thin? I usually like a thicker sauce, but this sounds different and delicious.

Can't beat the price! The outside of the chicken looks really crispy, which is how I like my katsu.


When I come back for a visit, I'll need to check this place out! As weird as this sounds, the reason I don't really like tonkatsu or chicken katsu is because of the sauce. This has definitely piqued my interest! :)

Thanks for sharing with us what's behind secret door # 200!



Hey Reid - You gotta love these hole in the walls!


Glad to have you back Reid.
I will be over on thursday, I can't wait to be warm and eat. I only get 4-5 meals out, so not sure where to go just yet. Damp, dark and cold here in AK. - worst of all the boats aren't going out - so no fresh seafood.


Oh goodness, talk about a pang of homesickness right there :( I've never had chicken katsu since I left the island...
Keep your posts coming!! =)


Damn this is one of the best sauces around. The price is super cheap for the regular size plates. my brothers used to go daily for this stuff! You might want to call ahead though because the wait can sometimes be extremely long.


Quality: 8.2/10
Price: 8.7/10

This is one of the best lesser known hole in the wall places to eat. I used to live in Pauoa Valley and every time I walked to school (which was almost every day) I used to see a whole bunch of people crowded into that small room (including myself sometimes).

They have one of the best tasting and cheapest spam musubis around. I also like their fried rice spam and eggs, which is considerably cheap.

I haven't been there in a while, but from what I heard, it hasn't changed too much.



Thanks for the post, I will try to make it there when I go home this month. $3.95 for any plate lunch is crazy cheap. Hey I noticed that you're going to SYD around the same time I'll be in HNL. What restaurants you planning on visiting? Also noticed you're writing a review on the Fat Duck, I went there as well and was planning on writing about my experience too - it would be good to hear what you thought about it too.

    Most of the newer photos on this site are being taken by this camera. I'm still learning how to use it, but I think the photos it takes are amazing. Though the lens I use often varies, many of the photos on this site are taken with a Canon EF 35mm f2.0 lens.

    A majority of the photos on this site were shot using this little camera. It was compact and discreet -- excellent for taking photos under most conditions. Sadly, it has recently died.
