It was lunchtime and we continued our Japanese food run by hitting up Sobaten Japanese Cutlet. As the name hints, this place specializes in katsu and boy do they do a good job. Not to mention, the variations they have on this Japanese staple. It ranges from chicken, to shrimp, to cheese filled, to mille-feuille, and even cheese filled mille-feuille katsu. There’s plenty to try.
Located in the lower level of the Henry House, you’ll need to go down some small stairs to get there. It’s a bit narrow and kinda dark. But once you wind your way to the entrance, it opens up to a room filled with dining tables. We were the first ones there before the lunch crowd. Service was a bit confusing as we couldn’t tell who exactly was our waiter. Several people took our orders and of course that led to a complication with one of our dishes. It was completely not what my friend ordered. They fixed it pretty quick while tending to the incoming lunch crowd. Always a good sign when management prioritizes things properly. I think they’ll need to work on the wait staff a bit, but the kitchen was definitely fine.
