I had my faux-tonkatsu dish because I was really craving tonkatsu sauce. Really, making fried pork chops is really just an excuse to eat that sauce. I even ventured out to the Asian market after coming home from the library to buy a bottle (insert evil snicker).
In this bento: tonkatsu with tonkatsu sauce and mayo on a bed of rice, stir-fried vegetables (from frozen Italian pack), and a prune teacake.
As you can probably notice, I really don’t about eating fat. My favourite way of eating tonkatsu is to dip it in a mixture of tonkatsu sauce and mayo (a classic way). There’s something about having the two together that makes things… magical.
