Shimonita katsudon

Shimonita katsudon is different than your typical fried cutlet bowl with egg or sauce. This is a light-flavored dish that takes the fried cutlet and dips it in a soy-based sauce. It's said that it was seen on restaurant menus in Shimonita and eaten as early as the late Taisho era.
