Despite being in the Minami shopping district of Osaka, Hozenji Yokocho is a quiet, atmospheric area with cobbled stone streets.
Yokocho is an 80-meter-long and 3-meter-wide street that’s full of well-known gourmet restaurants.
Today I visited “Katsudon,” a restaurant that, as its name suggests, specializes in katsudon (pork cutlet bowls).
“Yuraku” is a famous katsudon restaurant in one of Fukuoka’s residential areas.
Katsudon is a dish in which fried pork cutlet is put on top of a bowl of rice along with onions and eggs cooked down in a special broth.
