Below are the places I have been and recommended for tonkatsu!

- Marugo (丸五) in Akihabara
Their tonkatsu is very thick and juicy! Could not believe it was fried because I did not feel heavy at all when I finished eating their tonkatsu. 

- Ponchiken (ポンチ軒) in Kanda
This long-established tonkatsu restaurants offers very soft tonkatsu. I loved eating their tonkatsu with just salt. It had slight natural sweetness of the pork and because it was so soft I did not have to chew over and over again.
They have katsu curry on the menu and a group of women sitting next to me was having katsu curry so it might be tasty as well, not sure, I have not tried by myself yet!
