Quality Over Quantity: A Refreshing Approach
Maisen stands apart from many other katsu joints by offering katsu sets with a refreshing twist—no unlimited sides. While the allure of endless sides can be tempting, there are days when you simply crave a hearty lunch without the worry of feeling overly bloated. Maisen caters to precisely that desire, providing katsu sets at affordable prices with single servings of side dishes.
The Essentials: Japanese Rice, Miso Soup, and Shredded Cabbage
At Maisen, the katsu sets come complete with the essentials: a bed of Japanese rice, a soothing bowl of Miso Soup, and a serving of freshly shredded cabbage. These sides are perfectly portioned to complement the star of the show—the katsu itself.
A World of Flavor: Chicken Katsu Curry and Katsudon
Chicken Katsu Curry: This dish is a harmonious blend of crispy chicken katsu and the rich, flavorful curry sauce. The tender chicken cutlet paired with the comforting warmth of slightly sweet curry was a taste sensation that my daughter couldn't resist.
Katsudon: Maisen's take on this classic dish was equally impressive. The perfectly cooked katsu, draped in a sweet and savory sauce, crowned a bed of fluffy Japanese rice. It was a bowl of comfort that had me savoring each bite.
Quality and Taste Beyond Compare
What struck me most about Maisen was the unwavering commitment to quality and taste. The katsu, whether Chicken or Tenderloin, was cooked to perfection—crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Each bite was a symphony of flavors and textures, a testament to the culinary expertise that Maisen is known for.
In Conclusion: A Satisfying Culinary Journey
Maisen's approach to katsu sets, emphasizing quality over quantity, is a breath of fresh air. It's a reminder that a satisfying meal doesn't have to leave you feeling overly stuffed.
