Chashu Egg at Yachiyo Tonkatsu, Tsukiji Market

E Eto | Oct 4, 2008 12:11 AM

I just caught this on a Japanese TV show, but next time I go to Tsukiji, I think I have to have this crazy chashu-egg dish. It looks incredible... and incredibly laden with all that cholesterol... so bad, it must be so good. It seems pretty popular with the workers who want something filling, as well as the Japanese food bloggers. It's basically thick cut chashu (looks like it's the braised kind, i.e., "nikomi") plopped on two lightly fried eggs over a garnish of some cabbage or other vegetables. Oh yeah, the tonkatsu and the variety of seafood fry (oysters, ebi, aji, scallops, etc.) look good too, but if I'm schlepping to Tsukiji, it's either for sushi or this plate. Every blog and food site I've seen on Yachiyo has featured this chashu egg dish. Looks like it's the biggest seller.
