Saboten Malaysia @ 1 Utama

One of the world's largest tonkatsu chains, with more than 500 branches mainly in Asia, Saboten has opened its first Malaysian outpost in 1 Utama. 

Expect a capably executed range of deep-fried breaded cutlets served in various combinations - for the ideal introduction, order the duo of pork loin katsu and creamy cheese-stuffed pork tenderloin katsu (RM36.90) and seafood-fuelled salmon katsu with shrimp and crab croquette (RM40.90). Both sets come with refillable rice, miso soup, cabbage and tea beverage. 

All in all, Soboten succeeds in offering the comprehensive tonkatsu experience; service is efficient and helpful.

  1. I guess these are not gluten-free, dunno what batter they use. My girl loves Japanese but now that she's off anything gluten, eating out can be quite a hassle especially when they use imported flour like from Japan or Korea, for the batter and do not really know if there is wheat in it.

    1. Suituapui: yeah, you're right, if you had to go gluten-free at this outlet, it might be quite tricky!

  2. I can't say I'm a big fan of tonkatsu as the overall experience is a little too dry for me. ^_* I've always wondered why the serving of shredded cabbage accompaniment is practically 'undressed' or with very little dressing (sometimes I'd pour some oil + soy over it for flavour...kekeke!).

    1. Contact.ewew: ooo, i think depending on the cut and the preparation, some places do serve not-too-dry tonkatsu :) i think the cabbage can be eaten with a squeeze of lemon juice or with a bit of dressing if needed, but if i remember correctly, it's meant to be relatively plain to balance out the 'richness' of the meat :)

  3. The pork cutlet seem smaller if compared with the one at Publika :P The shredded cabbage, I'll enjoy it with generous amount of sesame dressing provided, does this brand provide sesame dressing as well?
