Surprisingly, a lot of our lunchtime hits ended up being restaurants on the top floors of malls, which threw me for a loop since in America the usual mall haunts are the same rotating slew of fast food joints. This Tokyo mall even had some outdoor space on the roof!

We tried the tonkatsu curry alongside shredded cabbage and cold sesame oil noodles. The meal was the perfect balance of heavy and light on such a muggy summer day in Tokyo.

That’s in a mall?! I had no idea until I read the bottom of your post. Maybe I would go to more malls in the US if the food tasted even half as good as yours looks.

right? i loved how unique each of the malls in Japan were and was so surprised by the food options!

The tonkatsu we had in Kyoto was delicious and this was at a place that was part of a chain in a mall as well. I just love how light they make the batter which makes it feel as if it’s less greasy :P.
