Tonkatsu Ginza Bairin Restaurant

A leisure stroll through Waikiki with my son and husband we ended up at Tonkatsu Ginza Bairin. A restaurant for tonkatsu lovers.  Tonkatsu a breaded deep fried pork cutlet often served with shredded cabbage.

We were quite impressed when we walked in.  The decor was cozy and welcoming, the restaurant was just at the end of their lunch rush when we sat down.  The menu was simple.  My husband was disappointed to find out that curry was not available.  Katsu Curry is served everyday until 4:30pm $15, but not on weekends or holidays.  We were there on a Sunday (figures).  Their Katsu Curry is also available on Tuesday and Wednesday nights for $17.  My husband ordered the hamburger plate. His order came with 2 small hamburger patties (it tastes very close to the ones from japan), salad and japanese soft cooked egg and of course rice and miso soup. It was delicious.  My son and I ordered the popular Ginza Tonkastu Set.  Ours came with Tonkatsu with a heap of shredded cabbage, rice and miso soup. The tonkatsu was absolutely amazing.  It was tender and juicy not dry, not over cooked. Wow! I was impressed.  The menu is quite pricey, but well worth it if your looking for authentic Japanese Tonkatsu in Waikiki.  Take out is available. You will find them in Waikiki at 255 Beachwalk. For more information on their hours or on parking, please call them at 808-926-8082  or check out their FaceBook for more information.
