Ma Maison, the popular Japanese-French fusion restaurant, has just started a new restaurant at Mandarin Gallery. Tonkatsu, named after the renowned breaded pork cutlet dish, sells all things deep fried. This gives Japanese food lovers another reason to flock there other than Ippudo.
There are so many other things I love about the food here. The negi miso rosu katsu set ($27.30) had thick slices of pork which was at least 2cm thick. Even though the set menu seems a little pricey, it comes with rice and sides of tonjiru soup, shredded cabbage and pickles – all served free-flow. The fresh shredded cabbage dipped in specially made sesame sauce alone makes the meal all worthwhile.
