Tonkatsu is an imported dish that hedonistic Hong Kongers find absolutely irresistible.
The deep-fried pork cutlet is a constant craving for certain foodies, including WOM Guide co-founder Fergus Fung, who weighed in with our panel in favor of the katsu curry rice at Ginza Bairin.
The Japanese Kurobuta pork -- the Wagyu of pork -- is battered in house-made bread crumbs and fried in cottonseed oil until it attains a magically balanced ratio of crunchiness to juiciness.
Combined with thick Japanese curry and that unmistakably sweet-sour tonkatsu sauce, it's as much an addiction as it is just a dinner.
