Media Tasting at Tonkichi Hokkaido
Tonkichi Singapore, with more than 20 years of serving Japanese Tonkatsu in Singapore. Tonkichi has refurbished and is renamed as Tonkichi Hokkaido, bringing you a brand new experience. A wide variety of choices on the menu that makes you have a hard time deciding what to order. There are six different katsu available; hire(pork fillet), rosu(pork loin), prawn, chicken, fish and oyster. Besides the popular deep fried Tonkatsu, you can also expect sashimi, sushi, don, soba, ramen and more!
The sashimi mori comes in choices of 3 or 5 kinds of assorted sashimi. I especially enjoyed the thick slices of fresh sashimi and salmon being my favourite. If you’re a fan of salmon like myself, you should also try Salmon Daisuki.
Sashimi mori (5 kinds) at S$27.
Simply drools at the sight of salmon fats. Look at the amount of salmon fats in every slice of salmon. You get the best of both worlds with salmon sushi and salmon roll. I have personally enjoyed the salmon roll. A refreshing way to enjoy salmon wrapped with thinly sliced cucumber. The sushi rice is generously sprinkled with sesame seed, surrounded by the fragrant sesame smell in every mouthful. Definitely a great satisfaction to any salmon lover.

The Signature Premium Rosu Katsu set comes with deep fried pork loin from Japan, a bowl of Japanese rice, chawanmushi, roasted sesame, pickles and also a bowl of miso soup.
There are three ways to enjoy the premium deep fried pork loin;
- Dip into the tonkatsu sauce.
- Mix the roasted sesame with tonkatsu sauce. Drizzle or dip into the mixed sauce as you like.
- Drizzle or dip into Japanese curry sauce (option to change chawanmushi to curry sauce at S$3).
The different flavours allow it to be blended with the nicely pressed premium pork loin to create a wide variety of tastes. The crunchy breaded coating protecting the juicy and tender meat beneath. There is a la carte katsu option to add on; if you can’t get enough of the katsu. Choices of prawn, chicken, pork fillet, pork loin, fish and oyster; prices from S$3.
If you can’t decide what to order; try Sushi & Katsu Set. It comes with 7 nicely pressed sushi and also choice of katsu (pork fillet, oyster or prawn). The sushi chef has already applied the right dab of wasabi between the fish and the rice for you. Do inform the server if you do not want any wasabi in your sushi. The oyster katsu is huge; delicious contrast of crispiness and succulence.

The unagi gives a rich and deep flavours. However I would have enjoyed more if the texture is softer.
Unagi kabayaki at S$18.
The ambience of the restaurant was cosy and relaxing, exuding a comfortable welcome with the bright light bulbs.
