Tonkatsu Ma Maison

Huge, filling servings of deep-fried pork are the focus at this casual Mandarin Gallery spot. Mingle with a crowd of Japanese expats, tourists (staying at the Mandarin Orchard Hotel next door) and locals as you dig into mains like miso rosu katsu ($23.80) — deep fried pork loin with miso sauce — and Crab Croquettes ($23.80). Sides like cold tofu with edamame and ponzu ($5.80) and Iberico ham ($9.80) round out the menu. Pair the meal with drinks such as Manzairaku Kaga Umeshu ($10/glass; $55/bottle) and Jozen Mizuno Gotoshi Junmai Ginjo ($32.80).
