While eating I added the standard tonkatsu sauce on it, because the standard one matches better than this cheese and tomato sauce for eating rice.

About Rice and Miso Soup

Some of the locations offer good deals, although not all of them do. They have free refills of rice and miso soup when you order a set meal from the several kinds available (called 定食 Teishoku in Japanese).

The shops that have this service will display a sign board or hanging banner in front of the entrance, (ライス・みそ汁 おかわり 無料) like the green circle seen in the picture below.

When you're travelling on a budget and want to save money this pork cutlet restaurant MATSUNOYA is perfect for you.

To be honest, their pork cutlet is very affordable and tastes pretty average but the rice wasn't my favorite taste.

If you can afford to pay double the price, I would recommend a better restaurant that serves pork cutlet that tastes way much more delicious. You also get good value for your money as they offer free refills of rice, soup and cabbage.
