Katsudon Hanakatsu – Popular Tendon Kohaku Sells Katsudon Next Door, And It Is Delicious

Katsudon Hanakatsu - Popular Tendon Kohaku Sells Katsudon Next Door, And It Is Delicious
by

Since Tendon Kohaku at Eat At Seven Suntec City is doing so well, I reckon the group is carrying with the same formula at Katsudon Hanakatsu.

The space on Level 3 near the Sky Garden used to be taken up by Tonkatsu Agedoki, but perhaps Singapore diners do not fancy thick-cut pork cutlets that much.

Katsudon Hanakatsu looks like it is off to a positive start. The restaurant serves only Katsudon filled with deep-fried chicken and pork in 2 different versions – regular and spicy.

Price is considered reasonable, at $13.50 per bowl with a sizable portion.

You cannot help drawing parallels to the tendon shop next door – similar pricing, similar bowl, similar condiments, similar original and spicy version.

I guess if it works, why change it?

The bowl came piled up with medium-thick crispy pork and chicken slices, looking as though it was trying to emulate the shape of a blossom. Were there like six slices of them?

The first bite already sent some ”wow” down my spine – thinly breaded, crisp and hot throughout, tender meats, and higher than normal spiciness with a tinge of sweetness.

Somehow, not many eateries in Singapore can do pork this tender and juicy, with a good bite.

A cautionary note, for diners who cannot take strong levels of spiciness, this bowl looked unintimidating, but it was.

There was a choice of Nanatsuboshi Hokkaido Rice or the 16 Multigrain Rice.

I had the multigrain rain, drizzled with sweet sauce, probably had some stock over as well, but not as wet as other katsudon served elsewhere.

Top up $2 and you get a bowl of tasty miso soup filled with pork and vegetables.

I struggled with finishing the entire bowl, not because it wasn’t tasty (it was very), but there were too many pieces of meat. Happy problem, I guess.
