Village Voice's Description

Katsuhama 55 is the younger sibling of old-timer Katsuhama, located on East 47th Street. The new place is bigger, and occupies the second floor of the premises, offering dramatic street views. The core of the menu remains breaded and fried pork cutlets, but all sorts of Japanese pub grub has been added, some of it nearly as perfect as the pork. Fried soba noodles make an amazing snack, and so do the little skewers of fried pumpkin. You can have octopus done several different ways (one of them gooey and raw), or udon noodles in a memorable broth. Our favorite dish is katsudon-a smaller pork cutlet mired in egg, sweet soy sauce, and caramelized onion atop a bowl of white rice. Look for cheap wine and hot sake specials.

    Try the traditional tonkatsu set: Japanese breaded fried pork with shredded cabbage, sesame seeds that you grind yourself, tonkatsu sauce and miso soup. It’s EXACTLY like Saboten in Japan! - Alexa

    Tonkatsu is AMAZING and the kimchi is spicy and very authentic

  • Tomas on 09/16/12

    Tonkatsu was really authentic style!

  • Kenny R. on 08/04/11

    Their menu changed recently so make sure you ask for the Berkshire pork (not the regular).

  • Jon D. on 11/25/09

    Over-priced. Better Katsu is to be found elsewhere
