Mentaiko katsudon set from Tampopo

Tampopo, mentaiko katsu set

This was a tonkatsu that featured mentaiko stuffings within the cutlet. As good as the idea might have sounded, the execution fell short in the department of flavour. That was not to say that this wasn't a piece of enjoyable tonkatsu. I thought that the flavour from the roe was insufficiently pronounced. Truth was that there was more of that leek/onion aroma while the mentaiko wasbarely discernible. Even though it looked like there was quite a bit of them between the layers of sliced pork. That being said, this layered tonkatsu was pretty tasty. The meat was more tender than the usual hire katsu.
