Foie gras tonkatsu with truffle from Tampopo


It seems that Tampopo has just upped the ante of their own game by introducing truffle paste into their foie gras stuffed tonkatsu. This item has already made it into their regular tonkatsu menu if anyone's wondering. If anything could be described as indulgent, this would be one of them. Needless to ask, I was sold there. How did that taste? It was exactly like what I had in mind with both the flavors of the black truffle and the fatty melting liver coming through like butter across those tender layered pork beneath a crispy breaded crust.
