Katsu Curry!

I was first introduced to Katsu Curry (breaded and fried prok cutlet served with Japanese curry) while living in Irvine at a place called Sagami's. Since then I have fallen in love with the dish and judge a Japanese restaurant's cooked menu based on their Katsu Curry.

Well, recently I have discovered a Katsu Curry to die for! I am talking about the Katsu Curry at Miki's in San Francisco on Balboa (3639 Balboa St., 415-287-0874). The Katsu is crispy and flaky on the outside and moist and light on the inside. The curry is delicious with a capital "D". It is Japanese comfort food that is absolutely satifying. To top it off, that red pickled vegetable is a perfect compliment to the curry. Their's had bit of lotus root in it that gives it a nice crunch. I am not sure what the other vegetables in it are, anyone know? The difference maker with Miki's version is the pork cutlet is light and moist not dense like most other places. Yummmmmm!

Anyone else a Katsu Curry fan?
