England's Wang Tonkatsu, famous as a filming location for the drama âAnswer Me 1988,â which has recently become popular, is one of the famous pork cutlet restaurants in Incheon. There are many regular customers that are as old as their long history, but recently the number of new customers has increased significantly due to TV appearances. The atmosphere created by the antique props makes you feel like you've traveled to the 1980s in a time machine the moment you enter the store. There are only two options on the menu: king pork cutlet and cheese pork cutlet, and if you order cheese pork cutlet, they put a lot of mozzarella cheese on top of the king pork cutlet. âEngland King Tonkatsu,â which maintains the same recipe from 1981, uses pork sirloin from a pristine region in Gangwon Province, and it is said that the sauce is also made from fresh vegetables and fruits. For dessert, you can enjoy unlimited coffee, ice cream, and carbonated drinks at the self-service bar.

3. âMy wife's pork cutletâ is not a waste of time standing in line
There are people who have never eaten it, but no one has eaten it at least once. It has a thicker thickness compared to regular Japanese pork cutlets, and is characterized by wrapping boiled tofu in cotton cloth to remove the water from the tofu, then pre-salting the meat with ingredients mixed with rosemary, turmeric, and milk to keep it moist. Also, since tofu powder and bread crumbs are mixed to make fried batter for pork cutlets, it goes well with soft meat. In particular, the demi-glace sauce made using a hotel-style technique has a savory flavor with the addition of rice flour. There is also a spicy pork cutlet for those who like spiciness, but it's more irritating than you might think, so it's a good idea to check it out.
4. Seongsu's rising morning star, 'Yoon Kyung-yang Diner, '
'Yoon Kyung-yang Diner, 'an interesting name that can be interpreted in various ways depending on the spacing, is a small restaurant near Seoul Forest that has been rapidly rising recently. Takeout is available, so if the weather is nice, it's a great place to enjoy a picnic with your family, partner, or friend at nearby Seoul Forest. Pork cutlets, which are the main menu, are deep-fried in a thick shape without stretching using a hammer or machine to preserve their chewy flavor and moist juiciness. Hamburg steak is also one of the popular dishes here, and it has a soft texture using pure Australian beef that is minced and kneaded by hand. They also have craft beer and a snack menu that you can enjoy with your meal, and we recommend grilled pork aged in miso and yuzu as a snack. It's also a good idea to casually enjoy âTonmak.â

5. 'Seaside Kyungsiyok', the fourth king of Incheon's Korean pork cutlet
Seaside Kyungyo-sik, which first opened its doors in 1989, still maintains its retro interior as if time had stopped. If you order pork cutlets, peanut soup is served as an aperitif, but unlike the cream soup you usually eat, it's even more savory when you make it yourself. The price went up to 10,000 won this year, but it makes sense when you look at that size. The thin deep-fried pork cutlet is topped with plenty of sauce, and the macaroni mixed with baked beans, sweet peas, and mayonnaise also plays a strong supporting role. A small piece of spam and a daint-sized french fries are also highlights. If you want to enjoy the taste of memories that have not changed as if time has stopped, I recommend this place.
