Best Korean Style Donkatsu in the OC

4.5 stars

Yoko is probably the best Korean-style donkatsu in the OC. Don’t wanna bore you or myself with the details, so here are some random comments:

1. Good donkatsu. Basic pork and chicken katsu is good. I hadn’t seen “designer” donkatsu outside of Seoul, Korea, but this place has the basics covered: kimchi cheese and cheese donkatsu.

2. HUGE cabbage salad. I LOVED THIS!!! Yoko is not stingy with the slaw included with your cutlet. They give you a monster mound with some light and delicious dressing. LOVE IT!!!

3. Focused menu; glad it cuts through the chaos. Pick your donkatsu, rolls, and/or noodle/soup dishes and call it a day. The menu is not over-ambitious so with less items to worry about, the higher quality of the food.

4. Oil has zero trans-fats; makes you feel less guilty even though you’re still eating deep-fried meat.

5. Cute and well-designed interior. Lots of contemporary art in a spacious and clean setting. Love it just for its decor.

6. Grind your own sesame seeds. This delights me because I’ve only seen this in the trendy MyeongDong district (again, in Seoul). They bring you a bowl of roasted sesame seeds with a small mortar and pestle. What’s that all about?…

A. This is where they pour your donkatsu sauce. To make it more flavorful, they include the sesame seeds crushed to your desired consistency.

B. Crush your sesame seeds by rotating your pestle clockwise or counter-clockwise against the ridges of the mortar. You’ll see what I’m talking about. Don’t make the rookie mistake of pounding the sesame seeds – they’ll probably fly out all over the place and you’ll look like a total putz.

GO TO YOKO.

Get the Katsu

I like getting the katsu here because it's so moist and doesn't seem too greasy like other places. The portions are generous, so you can definitely share a meal with someone. They also have pretty good sushi rolls. I would definitely…
