When the crisp chicken katsu is topped with white yam mud, then that will be the "shiroi-katsudon". So that's it, it is really white.
A dish of putting all kimchi, nori and onsen-tamago (Japanese soft-boiled egg) together! It's totally different from katsudon~ Well ~ Delicious!
In Japanese, "katsu" is the abbreviation of "katsu-retsu(= the Japanese pronunciation for cutlet in English)", because its pronunciation is the same with “katsu” which means "victory" in Japanese, then during the important period of game, exam or job hunting, people will eat katsu dishes in order to pray for victory.
The original intention of "Sentoporu-no-tonari" is just in the same way. In addition, the "white (star)" in sumo wrestling is the sign of victory, so the students in Rikkyo University will come here to eat shiroi-katsudon before exam or during job hunting.
In order to meet the requirements of the students in Rikkyo University and welcome the freshmen enrolled in April, 2018, "Sentoporu-no-tonari" launched the "kuroi-katsudon" in February of this year!
With the intention to provide healthy food for students, "Sentoporu-no-tonari" coats the chicken katsu with a layer of nutritious sesame! The more you chew, the taste will be better, the aroma of sesame spreads in the mouth!
As a graduate of Rikkyo University, the store manager of "Sentoporu-no-tonari" opened this store next to his alma mater in order to allow his brother-sister-school students to enjoy healthy and delicious dishes. From now on, “Sentoporu-no-tonari” will continue to support students in Rikkyo University.
