Hirata Bokujo -- Eating
Hirata Bokujo is located in Tokyo Midtown. It is next to a boutique supermarket. There's also a meat counter to the left of the restaurant.
These people really know how to do pork well. They don't have an English menu but you can't go wrong with their katsu meals. Ask the server to describe the different types of pork. It's simply delicious. Once you've tasted it, you'll understand. The pork is flavorful and the quality of the meat is exceptional. It's crispy on the outside and the meat just melts in your mouth. Also try the different sauces.
It's a great place to eat lunch but the line that forms outside of the restaurant is usually long. The best time to go is right when they open.
