Where to find the best tonkatsu in Bangkok

With a crispy layer of breadcrumbs around a juicy pork cutlet, tonkatsu has become one of the most common Japanese food favourites. Here are the places where you can find the best tonkatsu in Bangkok.

Sushi and ramen usually come to mind when we think of Japanese food. But there’s a broad range of Japanese fare beyond these staples, and another well-known must-devour is tonkatsu. Similar to German schnitzel and Polish kotlet schabowy, this popular deep-fried pork cutlet dish is an irresistible and comforting meal. Here are restaurants in Bangkok that serve the most delicious tonkatsu in town.
