I know I don't like mushy soba, glad this was al dente.


I hate mushy soba too Kat! I was actually surprised it was done perfectly.


I can't tell from the Katsu Cafe pics - but do they use white or dark meat for the chicken cutlet? It's been awhile since I've been back here.


Hi Faye - It's white meat.


In the "infamously familiar" picture are you referring to Emperor Hirohito?


Hi Matt - I believe it's the person next to Hirohito who looks well, familiar from certain angles to me.


I've never been to Hinotez for lunch. Surprised it's that empty. It gets pretty packed for dinner and late night.

Katsu with breading falling off is no bueno.


Hey Junichi - The folks I know that go to Hinotez view it as a late night kind of place; so maybe that's the norm? The breading peeling off the katsu is a real pet peeve of mine. Glad to know I'm not the only one.
