Not to be confused with Anzu Futaba (杏双葉)
Anzu (あんず), famous for its pork cutlets, prepares everything from fresh Kyushu produce, and they don’t just serve fresh vegetables – they grow it themselves too. They’ve brought their signature dishes to Japan Food Town, including their top quality Black Pork (黒豚), deep-fried and served with homemade sauce, then plated on delicate Imari porcelain.
MENU AND PRICES
Display of both the Anzu Set and the Hot Pot Set:
- HOT POT PORK LOIN KATSU SET
First we are given a large porcelain bowl of salad (which is part of this set) that is accompanied by a jar of Yuzu Salad Sauce. You will get to mix the salad yourself with the given sauce and mayonnaise. Then, the main hotpot arrive still sizzling hot that you can see the bubbling from the sauce in it. The delicious and fresh katsu meat compliments very well with the egg; a rich savoury combination of taste. This comes with a choice of either Japanese ‘black’ rice or Japanese white rice. Apparently the ‘black’ rice is similar to the brown rice that comes in Chinese rice dishes. Rice in these sets are refillable and you can change the type of rice too. The hotpot might be a little salty, but there is the salad for you to neutralise it.
Swee: The pork Katsu is delicious but the sauce is slightly too salty. However, the salad with Yuzu sauce neutralised it
M.K: The Katsu is good and the egg is even better. I will definitely go back for another round of this.
John Smith: I love the Yuzu sauce as it complements the salad well. It is healthy and delicious.
- ANZU SET
This tasty dish comes with an assortment of katsu as the mains, and for sides there is a chawanmushi, miso soup as well as rice. The katsus served on the day were pork fillet katsu, prawn katsu and shrimp ball katsu. All the katsu were hot and crispy. The meat in pork fillet katsu was tender, fragrant and not too salty. For the shrimp ball and prawn katsu, they have stronger fragrance, especially for the prawn katsu, which prawn fragrance fills your mouth as you eat. Very delicious! This dish comes with a nice and fragrant dipping sauce as that requires you to manually grind sesame seeds and further mix with their sauce which tastes like BBQ sauce. On top of this, it comes with mayonnaise to dip with.
Swee: This is the first time I am eating this style of Katsu and I am loving it. It’s so tasty and savoury.
M.K: Protein! Protein! Protein! This is definitely one of my favourite Japan food set in Japan food town. It’s so flavour some and yummy?. Most importantly, the service there is excellent as they thoroughly explain the menu composition. ?
John Smith: I really love their prawn Katsu as it has a stronger fragrance. I will definitely go back for more of this, just can’t get enough of Japan food. ?
