A new pork katsu (aka cutlet) shop opened up in Surrey. Turns out it’s a chain with multiple locations in Toronto. This Surrey location is the first in BC.

The menu is quite simple: variations of pork loin or tenderloin katsu, or chicken or shrimp katsu if you don’t feel like pork. Alongside there’s also appetizers or fried chicken to add to the mix.

As suggested by the restaurant name, obviously we had to order a tonkatsu. We had the Pork Loin Katsu. Mr. made a comment, “This is one of the few restaurants whose food comes out exactly like the pictures in the menu.” Sure enough, it looks just like the menu, down to one piece of cutlet flipped to its side. In fact, I think the portion size is even bigger than the picture.

The cutlet was crispy, with just the right amount of breading. Panko breading was light and flaky.

Mr. and I don’t usually eat in Surrey even though it’s his neighbourhood. One Sunday night we were too lazy to travel far for dinner so we dropped by this Korean restaurant in the Guildford area, DaSom Korean Restaurant.

I decided to stay away from my usual Tofu Soup but went for Sullang Tang. It’s basically a beef bone broth with potato noodles and sliced brisket. The broth was very light, but it had this milky colour that you know it had taken in all the good stuff from the beef bone. It’s interesting that the potato noodles do not absorb any flavours from the soup, so the noodles were a bit bland while the broth was quite tasty. The sliced brisket was ok, a bit dry for my liking. Overall this feels really homey and a healthy meal option.

Mr. went for the Stone Bowl Bibimbap. When it got to our table it looked very wet, too wet for a bibimbap. (more…)
