Tonkatsu by Ma Maison

Huge, filling servings of deep-fried pork are the focus at this casual Mandarin Gallery spot. Mingle with a crowd Japanese expats, tourists (staying at the Mandarin Orchard 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).
