Pork Katsu Sandwich @ Ad Astra Bread Co. | Seaside - Monterey Peninsula

Melanie Wong | Nov 3, 202110:16 PM    

For National Sandwich Day, Ad Astra Bread put together a Pork Katsu sandwich, $10, as the daily special. It's a winner that I hope will return to the repertoire. The pork cutlet was nearly an inch thick, breaded with panko and fried to a satisfying crunch, yet staying juicy and tender with not a bit of dryness. Squiggled with just enough tonkatsu sauce, the katsu rested on a thick bed of lemony cabbage slaw with some mayo between toasted slices of housebaked milk bread.

Unlike its instagram moment https://www.instagram.com/p/CVykO9JvzOI/, the sandwich was not cut into halves. So I took it home to slice instead of eating at the beach. Still, the katsu was so delicious and an amazing value too in these inflationary times.
