The new menu at Saboten features 16 new sets consisting of different dishes put together. This includes sets with sashimi, shabu shabu, mentai, as well as teppanyaki combos. Each set still includes the mandatory Tonkatsu which we felt was mandatory since they are best known for that.
We felt that the Tonkatsu at Saboten definitely ranked above average. Of course not to be compared to restaurants that use Kurobuta quality pork, Saboten offers Tonkatsu at more wallet-friendly prices. The meat of the Tonkatsu was extremely moist and retained its moisture despite being deep fried in golden crispy bread crumbs - exactly how it should have been like. They also offer a special sauce at the side which we found to be of our liking as well.
While the location for Saboten right now isn't too much of our liking, west-siders should rejoice that they probably wouldn't be as crowded since no one hardly ever travels to the west. And for us, we just hope they expand to somewhere more central soon but otherwise the effort to travel down (once in awhile) for such Tonkatsu seems to be pretty worth it.
