Tonteki is a famous dish of Yokkaichi city(Mie prefecture). “Ton” = “Pork”, “Teki” = “Steak”, in other words, it is pork steak. Opening in November 2012, Kyoto Tonteki is a restaurant where you can eat Tonteki. The restaurant creates its original flavor through proprietary recipe such as seasoning authentic Yokkaichi's Tonteki with onions and garlic and sautéing with traditional soy sauce. Well, what kind of delicious Tonteki will I taste? I went to the restaurant with great expectation.
Here it is! This is Tonteki. It looks so delicious. In fact, I am certain the dish will taste delicious! Aromatically roasted thick pork and soy sauce-based Teriyaki sauce. It sure arouses one’s appetite. The pork is not cut all the way to the end. Since it is shaped like a palm, it is also known as the "glove yaki"(glove steak).
It is time to take a bite…
Delicious! Soft and juicy meat matches perfectly with the chili sauce. It goes well with rice.
Today I ordered the regular sized Tonteki set(200g). If this is not enough, you can order Dai-Tonteki set(300g). If you have confidence to eat even more, you can choose the Mega-Tonteki set(500g).
When you enter the building, take the stairs to go up. The restaurant is right there. The sign says "京都トンテキ".
