Most people are probably not aware that Millenia Walk has recently undergone a minor renovation project where the food court has been abolished and replaced with a few quality Japanese restaurants, one it which is Saboten.
My first encounter with their delicious tonkatsu has left me craving for more, I decided to check out this new outlet.
Black Iberian pig is a breed of domestic pig native to the Iberian Peninsula. This special breed of pigs are fed acorns, coupled with its fat-storing ability, produces meat with beautiful marbling that is highly sought-after in many countries. Not only does it taste good, it has certain health benefits too. Black Iberian pork contains high level of unsaturated fats (similar to olive oil) so much so doctors in Spain have affectionately named them “walking olive trees”.
Having said so much, let’s try Iberia Loin Katsu Gozen, which happens to be one of Saboten’s signatures. The additional marbling makes the meat more tender, the choice of using loin meat gives the meat a better texture. Saboten’s special bread crumb enhances the taste and texture of this choice meat.
The dessert is a scoop of mango ice-cream. Served on an iced plate, it is perfect for washing away the oiliness of the meal.
Saboten has been voted “Best Tonkatsu Restaurant in Singapore” by Hungrygowhere. Do you agree? Which is your favourite tonkatsu restaurant in Singapore? Please share, I would love to hear from all of you.
