Butagumi

2-24-9 Nishi-Azabu
Tokyo , Japan
81 3 5466-6775

Literally translated as "pig gang", this new-wave tonkatsu temple occupies a quaint timber-framed house in a quiet residential enclave near big, bright Ropponi. Besides tonkatsu Ibérico - limited, of course, to just a few servings a day - a roster of domestic pork cutlets proudly showcases hand-reared hog from Japanese boutique farms. Order a "Butagumi-zen" menu and you get five mini-tonkatsu stuck with tiny flags indentifying their provenance.
