Yoroppaken Main Shop (ヨーロッパ軒 総本店)


Tonkatsu Pork Cutlets

A famous restaurant visited by fans from far and wide and said to be the originator of sauce katsu-don, a local Fukui Prefecture specialty consisting of breaded pork cutlet soaked in Worcester sauce and served on a bowl of rice. It’s said sauce katsu-don was invented when the owner returned from a trip to Germany and, seeking to popularize the Worcester sauce he encountered there in Japan, created the dish to serve at a food fair in 1913. The shop’s pork cutlets, breaded with small panko bread crumbs, deep fried, and drenched in Worcester sauce, are so juicy and tender they can be cut with chopsticks. Served with several cutlets piled high on a bowl of rice, the shop’s sauce katsu-don is also visually impressive. The nearest station is Fukui Station.

Came here for my kids as they are fan of fried stuff. In the end, we all enjoyed it. Ordered the set that comes with huge piece of prawn, minced pork and port cutlet. They are lightly coated, crispy...
Reviewed:2018/01/16 Main but NOT the best Yoroppaken in Fukui. They are are slightly different.

          Northeast of Kyoto, the ancient Tojinbo Cliffs separate Fukui prefecture from the Sea of Japan in a stretch of land well worth exploring. Water sports and seaside delicacies are available in abundance as the spectacular rugged coastline flattens down into beaches to the west of the prefecture, while inland, Fukui is home to Zen Buddhist temples and historic ruins.
