From the Burpple community

New!! Crispy, freshly fried ebi & pork loin katsu. Comes with pickles, miso soup & option of brown or white rice. The shrimp was really delicious. Pork loin was just average compared to other popular Tonkatsu places like Tonkichi & Saboten

$39.90++ for a set for two. Value for money and would come again.

For the main- choice from chicken, pork or fish katsu). Then with sides like rice, soup, oyster and chicken karaage.

We ordered the pork katsu. The breadcrumbs were light and crispy. But the pork was a little dry for our liking.

burpple's deal comes with a generous spread of all kinds of meat: tonkatsu, ebi, fried oysters and chicken karaage 🐔🐖🍤🦪. First and foremost, the fried oysters are the bomb, we loved how crispy it is while keeping it naturally juicy and sweet.

Also, you get to pick your meat for the tonkatsu too (there's the trusty pork loins, or you can change to fish, chicken) and we added on cheese

Must say that the tonkatsu and fried fish are both consistently crispy, and coated well with a golden crust. Thumbs up to their rich miso soup as well

Newly opened Onkei situated at Paya Lebar Square comes from the idea of giving blessings that has a meaning of grace, kindness and blessing when translated in Mandarin.

What we had tried:
🍛Onkei Signature Katsu Set (Pork Loin 160g) - $21.90++
🍛Cheese Tonkatsu Set (Pork Loin 120g) - $21.90++
🍛Tonkatsu with Daikon Oroshi & Ponzu Sauce Set (Pork Loin 120g) - $21.90++
🍛Assorted Fried Seafood Set (Oysters, Aji Fish & Ebi) - $22.90++

Sides:
🍤 Tempura Prawn
🍤 Prawn Cake
🍳 Tamago torch with Mentaiko

All the sets come with a bowl of Japanese white rice/multigrain rice, Japanese pickles, crunchy shredded cabbage and Tonjiru soup.

My catch here would be the Tonkatsu w Daikon Oroshi, the pork loin was nicely breaded and fried... doneness was satisfactorily loved w the daikon which gives a refreshing touch to finish... and soup being a side I was very much impressed by it...

Tonjiru soup – Tonktsu broth simmered with Japanese pork, konnyaku, Japanese beancurd skin, white & red carrots for over 12 hours - I really enjoyed this soup that I have to request for a 2nd serving of it 🥰

Opening their first outlet in Paya Lebar Square last month, hit up this casual eatery for all your tonkatsu cravings! For just $39.90++, the Burpple Beyond Set comes with their Ebi & Rosu Katsu sets, with a choice of Pork Loin/Fish/Chicken and served with a side of Tori Karaage (2pcs) and Fried Oysters (2pcs). Enjoy the tender and crispy katsu with a side of rice, pickles, soup & shredded vegetables for a hearty lunch!

You can check out @onkeitonkatsu at Paya Lebar Square (01-85). A sister concept to @keikaisendon, treat yourself to a fairly affordable tonkatsu dinner since the weekend’s here.

Think of all the tonkatsu combinations that you can and they have it - Tonkatsu, chicken katsu, cheese tonkatsu, mentaiko tonkatsu, miso tonkatsu, curry katsu, ebi katsu and fish katsu.

All sets are served with a choice of Hokkaido white rice or multigrain rice, shredded cabbage, tonjiru soup, pickles, tonkatsu sauce and green tea. So here’s what we had.

Cheese Tonkatsu Set ($21.90++ for 120g/$23.90++ for 160g). Breaded pork loin cutlet with a cheesy mozzarella centre. As the camera took awhile to eat, we didn’t experience the stringiness of the mozzarella but I’d say it’s relatively decent. Only the pork loin option is available for this.

The good part of the katsu here is the crispness of the freshly made panko breadcrumbs yet the pork cutlet itself isn’t oily at all.

As a fan of Japanese curry, I added the side of Curry ($3.80++) which was fairly decent.

Mentaiko Tonkatsu Set (Pork loin: $21.90++ for 120g/$23.90++ for 160g). Essentially a piece of breaded pork cutlet topped with pure salted cod roe that gives it that umami kick. Although a favourite among my fellow Singaporeans, mentaiko isn’t something that will catch my eye.

As for the cutlet itself, there’s room for fine tuning. Ideally, pork loin should be moist and tender owing to its greater fat content. Ours was slightly tough and dry. We had this before their official opening and I believe they have since addressed the issue.

Thank you @onkeitonkatsu for hosting us to this tonkatsu dinner.
