What is Ankake Katsudon?

Kokado Shokudo” is located in Senmaya-cho, Ichinoseki City, Iwate Prefecture, and is a long-established restaurant founded in 1914.

The signboard menu of Kokado Shokudo is “Ankake Katsudon“, which is also a specialty of Senmaya. Katsudon is a deep-fried pork cutlet rice bowl. It is also known as an auspicious food, so some people eat it before the game or important event.

Ankake Katsudon

The Katsudon of the Kokado Shokudo has a crispy pork cutlet topped with sweet and sour starchy sauce. This bean paste is seasoned by adding medium-concentrated sauce made from bonito and mackerel flakes, soy sauce, sugar, etc.

This starchy sauce that has a deep flavor and the crispy pork cutlet match well, and it goes well with the crispy cabbage laid under the cutlet.

The day I went to eat, I had a set of Ankake Katsudon and warm soba. This soba is also delicious so I recommend it.

By the way, you can choose whether Soba is hot or cold, so you can decide depending on your mood.
