Tucked in a corner in Isetan Eat Paradise 1Utama is Tonkatsu by Ma Maison. Famed for their juicy and tender cutlets, Tonkatsu by Ma Maison has been around since 2013.
Both gNOMes have been patronizing Tonkatsu ever since they started their operations in 2013, and still loved their cutlets till this day. 😉 Word has it that although many love their Pork Katsu (とんかつ), a large number also swear by their Chicken Katsu (チキンカツ). 🙂
We started off our meal with some Potato Salad, while awaiting for our katsu sets.
Potato Salad [RM 7.50]
Your basic potato salad with tuna chunks. This salad is surprisingly good as it has a twist of tuna in it as well, giving it that slightly meaty taste to the whole mix. YUM!
Here at Tonkatsu by Ma Maison, each katsu set comes with refillable rice, cabbage and miso soup with pork bits. But should a set is shared by two, then the refilling practice is no longer applicable.
Chicken Katsu Set (チキンカツ) [RM 26.90]
Pork Katsu Set (とんかつ) [RM 26.90]
Deep-fried cutlets of meat, fried to juicy perfection. The batter is also absolutely crispy. With a selection of at least 3 different types of sauces, spicy, salty and sweet, it adds to the flavor of the cutlets. There are also instructions on different ways of enjoying their meat cutlets, for example mixing the minced radish into their special savoury sauce.
Hot rice with fresh meat cutlets, a simple yet enjoyable affair.
Verdict : The portions here used to be larger, but downsized to fit Malaysian appetites. The meat and ingredients used here are also of the freshest kinds. Should one have a little more money to spare, this would be a good place.
