Tonkatsu by Ma Maison

When I was in Singapore last year, my colleague asked me whether I would like to eat "Zhu Pah Fan" (which roughly translates to Pork Chop Rice) and I said no! I don't know why. The weirdest thing is that when I heard that Tonkatsu by Ma Maison was opened in Malaysia, I was really excited to check it out. I am hormonal alright.

In fact, I went twice in less than a month. I receive comments that the one in Singapore is better and I'm sure that they're right. But I live in Malaysia so I make do with what I have. The photos below are taken on 2 separate occasion via my iPhone 5 taken from my Instagram.

The menu.
The walls are lined with denims.

Seating arrangements.

Potato salad. Generous portion and tastewise it's good. Some japanese potato salad tend to be sour-ish but this is just nice.

Nyumen. It is essentially somen served in hot soup. A great starter. 

Oroshi (white radish) and a drop of Tamari dressing.
Jumbo Rosu Katsu Set (250gm). If you eat a lot of meat or plan to share, do order this. It's pork loin.

Negioroshi Hire Katsu Set (160gm). Pork fillet with loads of white radish and shallots.
Rosu Katsu Set (160gm). The smaller portion from the first pic of pork loin.

Ippon Hire Katsu Set (160gm). Pork fillets if you don't like fats.

We love the miso soup so much that we drank 5 bowls. Majority of the miso soup in Malaysia is cooked without pork. I guess we went a little overboard.

This is a place where it's guaranteed that your tummy will be filled to be brim. The portions are generous and a few items are refillable.
