Tel. 02-255-9848
Opening Hours: daily 11am-10pm
Credit cards: Visa, MC
Prices: Inexpensive-Moderate

You will find Saboten, a storefront restaurant with an all too familiar Japanese blond-wood accented interior, on the 6th floor of Central World just outside Isetan, usually with a healthy queue at the door during peak hours.
The main draw is the excellent pork tonkatsu, crisp outside, and juicy inside and in spite of its deep-fried cooking method it remains quite light. Served with freshly shredded cabbage with a terrific sesame seed dressing that you cannot stop eating. They offer various cuts of pork in the same style as well as minced along with shrimp and crab croquettes. This is probably the best place in town to sample tonkatsu from this authentic Japanese chain. You can find the directions and menu at
