"Moriichi" is a restaurant hidden on a back alley a little south on Koromo-no-tana street off Sanjo street. They specialize in "Tonkatsu"(pork cutlet). At first glance one would not know what kind of restaurant is behind the small door on the windowless white wall, but you can tell that the atmosphere inside must be carefully cultivated. So, what kind of food do they serve? I went inside the restaurant filled with excitement.

I chose the standard Pork loin cutlet from a menu of nine different kinds. The "Tonkatsu" came with an accompaniment of shredded cabbage, rice, miso soup, and pickled vegetables.

Sauce is set up at every table, so I picked up a ladle and used it to spoon some on to the "Tonkatsu". As there was no dressing, I used this sauce for the cabbage too.

The "Tonkatsu" is lightly breaded and comes in quite a hearty portion size. The meat, juicy and not too tough, was delicious all the way down to the fat that is characteristic of the pork loin. The rice went right down.

The Japanese-style interior with counter and table seating features a traditional atmosphere.
