From the Burpple community

Finally we ordered a side of 𝗙𝗿𝗶𝗲𝗱 𝗚𝘆𝗼𝘇𝗮 (5 pcs, $6.90). This is a dish that practically every Japanese restaurant offers, so we didn't have any expectations. They proved to be pretty good, the lightly crispy skin complementing the succulent pork nicely. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal at @onkei.tonkatsu, which is definitely worth a visit.

I also loved the 𝗙𝗿𝗶𝗲𝗱 𝗢𝘆𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗿𝘀. Captivatingly crispy outside yet soft and juicy inside, they were extraordinary. The 𝗧𝗼𝗿𝗶 𝗞𝗮𝗿𝗮𝗮𝗴𝗲, though, were kind of average and quite forgettable. I saw in the menu that the Fried Oyster costs $4.90 per pc while the Tori Karaage costs $4.50 for 3 pcs. If I didn't have the Burpple deal, I know which one I'd be ordering.

Onkei Tonkatsu is known for its wide range of tonkatsu dishes, and with a 1-for-1 Burpple Beyond Set, visiting was a no brainer. Each set ($39.90 for two sets with the deal) came with a generous serving of pork, fish or chicken katsu (we picked pork and chicken), one ebi (prawn) katsu, one Tori Karaage, one Fried Oyster, one bowl of rice and a bowl of soup. 

The stars were undoubtedly the katsu items. Coated with panko crumbs and masterfully deep fried, the 𝗣𝗼𝗿𝗸 𝗞𝗮𝘁𝘀𝘂, 𝗖𝗵𝗶𝗰𝗸𝗲𝗻 𝗞𝗮𝘁𝘀𝘂 and 𝗘𝗯𝗶 𝗞𝗮𝘁𝘀𝘂 were stunningly scrumptious. Despite being deep fried, the meats were not dry and retained their natural juices. We polished them off in no time and were left craving for more.

Elected not to use the burpple deal as we felt it was too much food. Had the Miso Rosu-Katsu Set ($19.90+) and the Chicken Katsu Set ($16.90+).

We were wowed by the generous portions of the sets, with the crisp battered meats stealing the limelight. Though they could be more tender and moist, the accompanying sauces made it better. Don't leave your Katsu for too long though, the Miso sauce for the Miso set started to 'dry up' after a while and made the batter soggy. While not as good as other Katsu specialty places, this was a good no-frills meal with substantial portions.

Do ask for your soup and shredded cabbages to be refilled! The tonjiru soup in particular was chock full of carrots, daikons, pork and plenty other ingredients.

Great value for two bowl set

The batter in the tonkatsu was crispy but not oily. The fired oysters were plump and juicy while the karage was pretty average albeit juicy. The soup is also refillable; and their miso soup dies have buts of mushroom and pork in it, which makes it a lot more robust than the miso soup served at other areas Fairly generous portions and above average taste; could very well rival some of the other tonkatsu chains that I have tried. Rating 7/10
Service staff was also great. Would recommend this to someone who doesn't like crowded areas.
