Tonkatsu Kioyshi

Tonkatsu Kiyoshi is a small Japanese restaurant that specializes in making tonkatsu, which is a breaded, deep-fried pork cutlet.  I don't really eat much pork so I'm glad they also make shrimp katsu, salmon katsu, chicken katsu, and other Japanese dishes.  I ordered the Japanese Style Potato Salad, Chicken Karaage, and Salmon and Shrimp Katsu served w/ a bowl of rice, miso soup, and Japanese pickles.

Before I ate the main entree, our waiter showed us how to prepare the katsu sauce.  Take a few sesame seeds (top left of pic), put in a bowl, ground the seeds with the pestle until fine, then mix into sauce.  As I was grounding the seeds, the aroma was slightly strong... I found the smell soothing!  The salmon and shrimp katsu were perfectly breaded with panko (bread crumbs) and did not taste greasy to me at all:


If you want the ultimate comfort food, I highly suggest eating at Tonkatsu Kiyoshi!  Other than the awesome food this small restaurant has a quiet, relaxed vibe.

Fat Boy

On my cheat day I ate at Fat Boy located on 4425 Stewart St Suite 107 (corner of Stewart St & Lamb Blvd).  It's a small fast food joint that serves hamburgers, pizzas, burritos, salads, smoothies (their syrups are homemade), milkshakes, and Mexican food:

Chencho Fries- a Fat Boy favorite!  These fries are topped with salsa verde, grilled onions, chopped chicken, and melted cheese:

Pastrami Boyger- beef patty topped with pastrami, mustard, grilled onions, pickles and mayo.  If you need a serious protein fix, this "boyger" is for you:

Fat Boy makes their meat patties daily and are never frozen.  Toppings and vegetables are prepared as needed, and buns are delivered to the restaurant fresh daily.  If you're feeling gluttonous, check out Fat Boy!

Flock & Fowl

If you're in the mood to eat a chicken dish, I highly recommend checking out Flock & Fowl.  This restaurant specializes in making Hainanese Chicken Rice.  It's a simple dish consisting of poached organic, free range chicken with marinated cucumbers and preserved mustard greens as seen in the photo below.  You may dip the chicken in ginger scallion sauce, house made sambal (chile), and house made soy sauce for more flavor/kick (not pictured).  Also, the sides to choose from are organic egg, Chinese sausage (lap cheung), chicken broth, or more chicken rice:

On the day we dined there, the Chicken & Poached Egg Congee was the special dish of the day.  Congeeis a rice porridge that's common throughout Asian countries.  It can be eaten plain, but usually comes with garnishes and sides:



We couldn't resist trying their steamed buns:

After I ate, I felt like I finished a home cooked meal, which is a rare feeling for me when eating at any restaurant.  Keep in mind this …
