"Western" Japanese food in Toronto?

Anyone know where I can find this? I don't mean California roll. I mean items like omurice, katsu-curry, hamburger - I think this is called Yoshoku rather than the traditional Washoku. So far the only place I have found is Green Tea Cafe in J-Town... anyone know any others?

    I think that R-Shop at king and sapdina serves katsu curry, but I haven;t been since early last eyar.

      It's commonplce in LA but virtually unknown here aside from the so-so stuff at J-Town.Japanese street/hole-in-the-wall food isn't big here.I'd kill for a good licensed yakitori joint.

        If memory serves, Izakaya at Church/Front had a yakitori dish. Not exactly a hole in the wall but a fun place to go to with friends. Great sakes.

          Ematei on queen and st. patrick has katsu curry, yakitori, ebi fry, etc. Their curry is decent.

            You can get Katsu curry at Natural Sushi on Yonge, just south of Bloor, west side

              Yakitori at Sakawaya, Danforth and Jones.

                Tokyo Grill on the west side of Yonge just north of Wellesley has a great katsu curry. Their menu is definitely more home-style Japanese and not what you'd find in your run of the mill North American Japanese menu. It might fit the bill for what you're seeking.
