Midoh Japanese Kitchen

I recently visited this place out of pure interest. It is not very crowded compared to other restaurants in the center like Boiling Point or some new conveyor belt sushi place.

I have to say I was pretty impressed with the food. The curry was great and they give this great spicy sauce that you can put in if it is not hot enough for you. I ordered the hamburger steak curry which came with salad and a choice of corn soup (which I got) or miso soup. Corn soup was solid, nothing impressive though. I got my curry and dug in. Very nice curry, pretty spicy as is and the hamburger was soft, meatloaf like but a bit smallish. The curry itself was pretty damn good.

On another visit I ordered the tonkatsu which is made with "black pig" loin. The tonkatsu was pretty tasty, soft, and flavorful and came with this toasted sesame katsu sauce that you smash tableside was pretty cool. The sauce had a great nutty flavor, not like any katsu sauce I have ever tasted.

Overall, pretty good Japanese food. Next I will probably end up mashing the two together and get the tonkatsu curry which I think could be great. But seriously this place should be getting some more attention.

  1. I wrote about them a few months ago, and while I'm confident most of their food is great it's going to be extremely difficult for me to go there and not order their stewed beef tongue, which is one of the better beef stew dishes I've had.

      I will have to try that dish then since this place so close to me. But the other items are the real deal. Katsu was like butter and very flavorful with that toasted sesame Katsu sauce they have.

      Did you try any of the desserts?

        Will definitely try the katsu when in the area...still have Kimukatsu on my list but consensus seems to be that the interior can be dry which is my biggest pet peeves of tonkatsu. I didn't have any desserts I usually pass on them.
