Katsudon @ Genki Ramen

Katsudon, a dish originating from Japan, where the term “katsu”originates from the term tonkatsu - meaning (ton) pork and (katsu) cutlet. The term “don” derives from “donburi”, meaning rice bowl. It's very western friendly as it is not too spicy and consists of essentially a breaded Japanese schnitzel with egg and onions on Japanese style rice. It's my favourite Japanese dish because I like the big chunks of pork and the sauce that comes with it. And who doesn't like an egg?!

For just 109 Baht, and a 10 minute wait, you will get a decent bowl of food, full of meat and rice and veg. Lots of flavours and textures too. The meal came piping hot, and there are several condiments to try on the side, such as a special soy sauce, some chili oil and a chili/pepper powder. Be warned, don't go overboard with the chili oil as it has some real kick.

There are lots of Japanese restaurants here now due to the number of Japanese businesses that are opening in the ever expanding city centre of Korat. This gives us plenty of choice as to where to get our Far East fixes, but Genki Ramen is one of the better options. It's on the same road as Klang 2, and is open at lunch (11am-2pm) and again in the evening. It's clean, air con and has wifi so offers a great place for a business lunch or a lunch catching up on your email/Facebook/tinterweb. There is plenty of room for parking on the side of the road most of the time.
