Tonkatsu by Ma Maison @ Publika

Tonkatsu, a Japanese food which consists of a breaded, deep-fried pork cutlet and normally served with shredded cabbage.Tonkatsu by Ma Maison is a chain of restaurants from Japan that specializes in Tonkatsu. Malaysia’s first Tonkatsu by Ma Maison outlet was opened in January 2013 at Eat Paradise, Isetan, I Utama and the second outlet at Publika.

We paid a visit to the Publika outlet a few months back for hubby’s birthday dinner. The restaurant is located opposite Nando’s and one floor above Daiso.

One can easily struck by the sampuru or fake food plastic models at the facade which really intrigued the curiosity to check out the offerings at Tonkatsu by Ma Maison.

Adopted a contemporary trend in design, the place is dressed in grey and dark wooden with yellow illumination of dangling light bulbs and downlights.

A quieter section at the back of the restaurant, suitable to accommodate bigger group of patrons or for those who need more privacy 😛

Each table is equipped with jars & bottles; sesame seed grinder, Tamari sauce, sesame dressing, rock salt, sweet and spicy Tonkatsu sauce. We curiously check out everyone of them. LOL

The 3-compartment bowl, fill it with rock salt, sweet Tonkatsu sauce & spicy Tonkatsu sauce. Salt helps to bring out the taste of the meat while the sauces meant to add extra taste to the meat and also a traditional way of eating Tonkatsu.

Oroshi
Tthe White radish, it can be enjoyed directly or add in the appetizing Tamari dressing which helps to refresh the digesting process before the main course.

Roasted Barley Tea

Miso Hire Katsu Set (RM 29.90+)

All set menu comes with roasted barley tea, rice (plain steam rice or (Jyukkokumai) multi grain rice), tonjiru (miso soup with pork) and cabbage which are refillable.

Nagoya style deep fried pork fillet with black miso sauce.

P6171261

Sink your teeth into the extremely crunchy panko layer followed by the succulent and well-flavored pork fillet. Simply out of the world delicious stuff and definitely achieved the targeted expectation!

Mille Feuille Cheese Katsu (RM 32.90+)

P6171254

Deep fried layered pork loin filled with cheese. The pork loin was fried to perfection without any trace of oil and the texture of the meat was more moisture with the glorious fat layer. This definitely an indulgence worthy of every calorie it packed!

 

While the main star performed their task well, the supporting cast screamed for attention too.

Cabbage

Fresh thin cabbage slices paired well with their house made sesame dressing, I added grounded roasted sesame for that extra fragrance.

Multi Grain Rice

Definitely recommend to choose this other than the white rice as it has more texture and fragrant.

 

P6171265

Tonjiru

Intensely flavored with earthy miso taste with pork, scallion and radish.

 

Verdict: Great food, portion wise and decent service and dining environment, definitely factors to lure me for a revisit.
