Restaurants & Cafés


Patronised by literary greats like Yasunari Kawabata and Yukio Mishima, Suidobashi's Katsukichi has remained largely the same since first opening its doors in 1962. The heavy-set wooden interior evokes memories of days gone by, but the menu has managed to hang with the times: fried in corn and sesame oil, the tonkatsu (pork cutlet) is made with fine, freshly sourced meat and feels about as light as a deep-fried dish possibly can be. Do prepare to fork out a little extra for quality fare, though – the standard (150g) katsu sets start from ¥2,400.
