[Teppei in Tomakomai] Tender Breaded Pork Cutlet and Tasty Rice


Ajidokoro Teppei (味処てっ平) is a famous breaded pork cutlet restaurant founded in 1974 in Otowa-cho, Tomakomai city. I heard that Tomakomai people have been loving the long-established breaded pork cutlet restaurant. The Teppei is particular about various things. Because they place a high priority on "The taste should be good for the health", they are particular about safe ingredients and hand-made foods, and choose pork, cooking oil, bread crumb, rice, soup broth and other ingredients carefully. They are particular about hot and fresh, too.

I visited here around 17:00 on a weekday. 2 groups of visitors enjoyed their meals. The restraunt with an atomosphere such as a typical local Japanese restraunt is somewhat large. Counter seats, table seats and small separate Japanese style rooms are provided, so I guess that even family customers and a large number of customers enjoy meals.

    I sat at a table seat, and read a menu. Unfortunately, pettitoes was out of stock on that day, so I ordered 110 g of breaded pork cutlet (とんかつ110g * JPY 1,160), a bowl of rice and a bowl of miso soup (JPY 340). The total sum was JPY 1,500.

    About 15 minutes later, the breaded pork cutlet meal set was served. I pounded sesame in a mortar, and the brown sauce with grated sesame seeds for breaded pork cutlets was poured into the breaded pork cutlet. When I ate a slice of breaded pork cutlet immediately, the pork was tender! The rice was tasty, too, and the good taste were double when I ate the rice with the sauced breaded pork cutlet together. I was able to feel their peculiar things. I finished eating quickly. Thanks for the tasty meal!
