On an unprepossessing side street off City Road, this contemporary Japanese diner pulls in hordes of hungry workers from Old Street and Islington at lunchtimes. The sushi, katsu sets and teriyaki plates are well priced and generously portioned — and the house dressing, which has its own army of fans, is a great Monday spirit-lifter.


We began with some pretty perfect chicken gyoza, plus a straight to desert island disk status dish, the tuna tataki with a truffle ponzu sauce. For the main event we had the signature tonkatsu which comes with rice, shredded cabbage and some pickles on the side and we also tried the chicken katsu curry which came with so much curry sauce it was practically swimming away (a good thing – we like our sauce). Both were pretty spot on, very satisfying and utterly filling, just as it’s supposed to be.

Tanakatsu has a short menu but does every dish very well and we’ll defo be popping back for a regular fix of tonkatsu AND to get our hands on that lunchtime-only tonkatsu sandwich special too.

Deep-fried lunching

One place that’s new to me (at least) was rammed every time I went or walked past through August: Tanakatsu, a katsu and teriyaki specialist to the south of Angel between City and Goswell Roads. The offer is simple. Basically, katsu chicken or pork with rice and salad, rice and curry sauce or rice, salad and teriyaki. All £12.5. No doubt there are better pieces of panko coated, deep-fried, premium iberico pork and wagyu beef pieces out there. But this is really good value and deeply satisfying. The bottomless cabbage salad and ‘Mighty dressing’  is hugely addictive. Apparently their sushi’s pretty good too, but hard to ignore the things coming out of the fryer.
