Operated by the same team behind Sukiya, the renowned Japanese chain restaurant, Katsu-an has made its debut in Singapore, marking its first outlet in the basement of Suntec City. Katsu-an has a robust presence in Japan with 52 outlets, renowned for its expertise in crafting delectable pork katsu don bowls. Beyond this signature dish, their menu encompasses an array of culinary delights, spanning teishoku, chicken katsu dons, and Japanese curry. An inviting aspect of Katsu-an is the affordability of their offerings, with their most budget-friendly main dish starting at just S$5.90.
One of the standout dishes at Katsu-an is the signature Katsu Don, a wholesome bowl of rice crowned with crispy loin katsu and fluffy eggs artfully seasoned with dashi. The fusion of egg and tonkatsu was masterfully seasoned, rendering the loin katsu delightfully crispy on the exterior and tender on the inside. The subtle sweetness of the umami sauce married all these components harmoniously. Notably, Katsu-an offers two unique sauces to elevate your dining experience. The Original Sauce, brimming with sweet umami flavors derived from 16 distinct ingredients, coexists with the Apricot Sauce, which imparts a touch of tanginess and fruity notes.
For those seeking an elevated dining experience, the Teishoku dishes offer a splendid choice. These meals come complete with your choice of katsu, Koshihikari rice, shredded cabbage, miso soup, and seasonal vegetables. The Cheese Loin Katsu Teishoku, for instance, boasts creamy nacho cheese that seamlessly complements the crispy fried pork. The mound of shredded cabbage serves as a refreshing accompaniment to the deep-fried goodness.
A further temptation awaits with the Chicken Karaage & Calamari Fry Teishoku. The calamari exhibits a delightful tenderness and a subtle natural sweetness, encapsulated within an irresistibly crispy breadcrumb crust. The karaage, equally crispy and juicy, completes this seafood-inspired delight.
To conclude your dining journey at Katsu-an, indulge in the Mont Blanc Cake or refresh your palate with the invigorating Yuzu Sorbet. Katsu-an offers an inviting and affordable gateway to the authentic flavors of Japanese comfort dining, making it a must-visit destination in the heart of Suntec City.
