korean restaurant / Sagan-dong, Jongno-gu – 615


“Ginza Bairin”, a Japanese-style pork cutlet specialty store located in Sagan-dong, Jongno-gu

Along with “Anzu” located in Euljiro, it is one of the two major mountain ranges in Seoul where you can enjoy authentic Japanese-style pork cutlets.

“Ginza Bairin” is a premium tonkatsu specialty store that started in 1927 in Ginza, Tokyo

Currently, there are two locations in Korea: one located here in Sagan-dong and one located near Gangnam Station.

The first place that opened was the Sagan-dong branch (opened in February 2011), and the Gangnam Station branch opened later.

There are a lot of comments saying that the quality of the Gangnam Station branch is worse than I thought… Sagan-dong Main Branch (?) Visit it at.

“Ginza Bairin” has continued its history since 1927

It's a place I've wanted to visit for a long time, but strangely, I didn't get a chance, so I finally visited this day.

Was there a protest at the temple located right next door on this day… There was a huge crowd of uigyung people…

“Ginza Bairin” menu.

Since it's a premium tonkatsu specialty store, the price range is higher than a typical tonkatsu specialty store.

I thought I'd order pork cutlets, but I thought katsudon would be better this day…

I ordered the “Special Gatsu Don (18,000 won)” and the signature dish “Katsu Sandwich (10,000 won).”

If many people visit, they'll be able to try this and that all at once… Because I often go out to eat alone

It's not easy to experience a variety of menus.

A view of the interior. Clean interior with no clutter.

Maybe it's the influence of the protests… Even though it was daytime on Saturday, many tables were empty.

“Katsu Sand (10,000 won)” that came out first

When I went on a trip to Tokyo in May of last year, I went to the main store in Ginza, Tokyo and tried to eat it, but in the end I couldn't eat it.

I finally tried katsu sandwich at this place located in Sagan-dong.

A thick pork cutlet is placed between soft sandwich-like slices of bread.

There are good quality, thick pork cutlets, so of course they are delicious, but I was even more impressed by the pork cutlet sauce.

Since that sauce containing wasabi captures the feeling well, it seems that the popularity of katsu sandwiches has continued until now.

Then came the “Special Katsudon (18,000 won)”

Put this place's unique sardine sauce on top of well-cooked rice,

Gatsudon topped with a pork cutlet made from sirloin and a large soft-boiled egg.

As a place that specializes in pork cutlets, I also like thick pork cutlets.

There are also cases where people miss the quality of the rice because they are only concerned about the taste of pork cutlets or sardine sauce.

I was even more satisfied with the rice in the katsudon at “Ginza Bairin” because it was a very well-prepared meal.

If I get a chance, I'd like to visit again next time and try other menus other than katsudon.

If you want to enjoy authentic Japanese-style pork cutlets, I think this place “Ginza Bairin” is still the best choice.

“Anzu” in Euljiro was also a pretty nice place… “Ginza Bairin” seems to be the first place that comes to mind since I was very disappointed when I visited last time.
