Saw this article in the Sacramento Bee and it caught the fancy of a friend so off we went. It's located in the Southside Park neighborhood. I think there used to be a Japanese neighborhood here in the old days. June's still attracts a lot of Japanese ( especially older ) - many of the customers seem to know each other and June and her husband who waits on tables while June cooks every dish. The macaroni salad is quite good: not too laden with mayo, a nice texture - not mushy, lots of pepper and little bits of vegetable for crunch and visuals. A bowl of miso soup with tofu follows before your order arrives. We shared a few different dishes ...... the Weenie Royale, Pork Katsu and Chicken Curry. You get your money's worth here and the food is very comforting. My Katsu was very crisp and not greasy at all .... love all the carmelized onions that came with it. Don't forget to add some of the Tonkatsu Sauce - adds a nice spicy dimension. The Weenie Royale was a nod to Internment Camp memories ..... but made with real ( not powdered ) eggs and slices of hot dog along with carmelized onion slices - this was served over a large portion of rice. The Chicken Curry was a big, almost overflowing plate of rice topped with chicken katsu and lots of curry sauce - think it had lots of onions and some vegetables cooked into it. The curry had a good flavor with a hint of spice to it. I think our dishes were in the 8-9 dollar range - a good value for a lot of homecooked food.
