This post introduces 4 kinds of different pork dishes that are low in price.

In my opinion.
The Pork Cutlet Bowl (カツ丼 Katsudon) is the best choice among them!

When I tried the dishes I thought the the pork cutlet tasted light and not very succulent, however the restaurant said they only use juicy pork.

Pork Cutlet Bowl (カツ丼 Katsudon) is served with a simmered Japanese-style broth with beaten egg that makes the simple pork cutlet taste better than just pouring normal sauce or curry on it.
