B-Class Gourmet of Kakogawa city, Hyogo Prefecture
Katsu meshi is a comfort food of Kakogawa city in Hyogo prefecture. It is a side of deep-fried beef cutlet covered in a demi-glace sauce served with a side of rice. The demi-glace sauce here is not the sweet kind you find in most places around Japan but a much more savoury kind which resembles a little bit like gravy. If you ordered a set meal or a teishoku it will usually come with a side of salad and miso soup. So if you are in this region of Hyogo and want to try something different then this is a filling dish to try!
