i chose โ€œvery hardโ€ for noodle texture and โ€œlightโ€ for the broth! ๐Ÿœ i would recommend to go normal for the broth because i feel the bowl lacked the thick meaty tonkatsu flavour i was looking for:(

really didnt enjoy the addition of the mentaiko. while it lended a very mild seafoody taste, the mentaiko could hardly be tasted and mostly added a incompatible spiciness that deviated from the japanese taste that i sought. the soup was thick and coated my tongue, unfortunately it didnt match what i look for :(

the noodles were quite nice - silky with a slight bite; but i can hardly imagine getting any lower than โ€œvery hardโ€ for noodle texture. the egg was pretty disappointing and inconsistent! across the table, there were plenty with molten yolks; unfortunately, mine wasnโ€™t one of them ๐Ÿฅบ definitely overcooked and bordering on hardboiled.

the pork was cut thin, tender and tasty though yumyum! recommend going for the tonkatsu broth (normal) instead, really much tastier and satisfying!
