Came here on a weekend lunch all by myself, as it seems everyone else is either sick or doesn't wanna come out after Easter holiday. Ordered:えびフライ＆広島カキフライ Prawn and Oyster Fry
Prawn was good, but too oily.
Oyster had a funny smell, also the batter was way too thick and oyster wasn't juicy.
Came with a Jap style Tartare sauce, which was eggy but not much p'ickles' taste - I guess I like this style of Tartare sauce as well as the original ones.
Batter really oily.
黒豚かつ Kurobuta Pork Loin (Katsu) Set Lunch
The batter on the 'pork cutlet' was ultra oily, more than the seafood ones. Not only that, but the oil was 益益地 plus had overcooked pork lard taste, BOTH TOGETHER.
Obviously, the Pork and the Seafood were cooked in different batches of oil, where one was used to cook pork only.
The Kurobuta pork meat was ultra tough, had none of the distinct Japanese Kurobuta only 甘味 sweet oil taste nor meat taste. I can't believe this would be Kurobuta.
The Katsu sauce was slightly too acidic, instead of being fruity and dense. Didn't go with the pork well, so hardly used it.
The batter looked good but if you look closer on the photo, oil is leaking out. Overall, the experience was quite bad. The cabbage with the 2 sauces was good, the rice was actually very good (had refills).
Its not as good as Tonkichi 丼吉 and Ootoya 大戸屋, but honestly, I have not had the pleasure to devour great Pork Tonkatsu in Hong Kong yet, compared to Japan or even in Australia. So far, 大戸屋 came closest, but that's still not great.
Having said that, the service in Kinmata here was really great - they even listened to my complaint of the Tonkatsu's oil having already been long overdue.
A Low '3' due to oil and oyster issue, but not as bad as '2'.
Prawn good. Oyster bad.
Oyster tastes unfresh and runny, batter too thick.
No Kurobuta taste. Dy and Tough. Oil gone bad.
Rice is really good. Better than 大戸屋.
Daikon broth. Not good and unclear.
