Hajime Tonkatsu & Ramen: One of the Top Tonkatsu Choices in SG (TE8 Upper Thomson-Thomson Plaza)

Not willing to queue for Omoté on our first visit, we headed for Hajime Tonkatsu & Ramen which had an outlet in Thomson Plaza besides its flagship store at Serangoon Gardens myVillage. This outlet in Upper Thomson is definitely easier to reach by public transport after the Thomson East Coast Line has opened.
We could finally try the highly raved Tonkatsu and it was indeed excellent. Ordered the Nagoya Miso Tonkatsu (pork fillet instead of pork loin) we heard that pork loin tends to be a tougher cut than fillet. Indeed, this fillet was tender inside and crunchy on the outside. We were glad the miso gravy was served at the side as it was very salty. 
Ebi Fry (also recommended!)
Oh and please order the set which comes with Japanese rice and free refill of cabbage even if you want to go carb free. The Japanese rice here is so tasty and I haven’t recall having such good Japanese rice from casual Japanese restaurants here.
