Maisen Tonkatsu Restaurant is a famous restaurant in Tokyo which now has opened a restaurant in Bangkok. The Maisen brand is renowned for some of the best quality Tonkatsu (breaded pork cutlets).
I had already visited Masien Tonkatsu Restaurant in Tokyo and was surprised to find the Maisen Restaurant in the EmQuartier Shopping Mall right next to Phrom Phong BTS Skytrain station in Bangkok.
I went in for lunch and had an awesome feed of the same quality Tonkatsu as you get in the Tokyo restaurant. Maisen only use the best quality pork. They say that the Maisen Tonkatsu is so tender you can cut it just with your chopsticks. I didn’t try this, I was too busy shoveling it my mouth!
Located on Level 8 of the EmQuartier Shopping Mall, the prices at Maisen are very reasonable so just a satisfying meal.
I had a set lunch special which comes with the breaded pork cutlet, shredded cabbage, pickles, rice, a bowl of miso soup and a dessert of green tea ice-cream. A delicious meal!
On the tables they have the traditional Japanese Tonkatsu BBQ sauce which you pour over the cutlet and over the cabbage. They also have some nice hot mustard.
