Of course, the quantity is accompanied by great quality, and the Japanese-style food will certainly keep you satisfied for the next few hours.

You can also order a meal with potato salad, cabbage, and miso soup together with your meat. Long queues are a common sight at Gyukatsu Ichinisan during lunch hour, but they move rather quickly as it only takes about 1 minute to fry each beef cutlet, so don’t be deterred by the queue!
