Tonkatsu Ginza Bairin is a Tokyo Ginza-based specialty Tonkatsu(breaded pork cutlet) restaurant offering a variety of signature dishes that have been kept true for three generations. Established in 1927, Ginza Bairin was the first Tonkatsu restaurant in Ginza, as well as the first to offer the now popular “Bite-Size Katsu (Hitokuchi Katsu)”, “Tonkatsu Sauce” and the “Katsu Sandwich” (Katsu Sando). At Ginza Bairin, the main ingredient “pork” is carefully selected from the choisest loin, coated in our traditional bread crumb seasoning and masterfully deep fried in premium salad oil to retain and highlight its award-winning texture, aroma and flavor. Coupled with Tonkatsu, we offer our signature “Tonkatsu Sauce” a blend of spices fresh fruits and vegetables bringing out the natural sweetness and robust flavor. Ginza Bairin’s trade mark “Chin(Rare) Ton(Pig) Shan(Beauty)” captures the dignified elegance of a pig playing a Shamisen, a three-stringed Japanese musical instrument. This nickname, given by a famouse storyteller Teijo Ichiryusai, has become so popular that it is often mistaken for the actual name of the restaurant. Please enjoy the long-established taste of Tonkatsu Ginza Bairin.

とんかつ銀座梅林は、昭和二年(1927年)に開業して以来、三代に渡り日本のトンカツ文化を開拓した誇りと、伝統のとんかつの味を守り続けてきました。銀座で初めてのとんかつ専門店であった銀座梅林は、その後「ひと口カツ」「とんかつソース」「カツサンド」を考案し、日本全国へと広めていきました。メインの素材である豚肉は厳選されたものだけを使用。特選パン粉、最高級サラダ油、秘伝のソースにもこだわった銀座の味です。人気のカツ丼は何度も日本一に輝き、カツサンドは東京・銀座の名物みやげとして親しまれています。銀座梅林は開業以来、講談師・一龍斉藤貞丈に題していただいた「珍豚美人(ちんとんしゃん)」の別名で多くのお客様に親しまれてきまいた。この度、日本の伝統的料理の一品である「とんかつ」を世界に広める第一歩として、ハワイ・ワイキキ店をオープンしました。食材、味、伝統にこだわった老舗のとんかつをご堪能下さい。

 

Tonkatsu

Pork Katsu Bowl Sauce 

The pork cutlet bowl was created by the Sancho-an (long-established soba noodle shop). However Mr. Nobukatsu Shibuya was not satisfied with the sauce used for this cutlet bowl. This sauce was made from the ocean bonito base soup stock but he believed the soup stock made from the port would be the best match for pork dishes. He made the soup stock from the “pork muscles”, which come out when cleaning pork meat, and onions. We, GINZA BAIRIN, use this special sauce for KATSUDON made from this pork based soup broth, adding San-on-sugar which often used for Japanese sweets (mild “soft brown sugar”), sweet cooking rice wine, and enriched soy sauce.

BREADCRUMBS パン粉

素材の豚肉の味を損なわないようにと糖分を抑えたオリジナルの生パン粉を使用しています。揚げ上がりの時のさくさく感やパン粉の剣立ちを実現するために何度も失敗を重ね、生地の熟成時間や出来上がりを寝かせる時間など、研究を重ねて銀座梅林の味のオリジナルパン粉を完成させました。

酸化しにくい揚げ上がりのさっぱり感があるとんかつ用のオリジナルの油を精油会社と共同開発しました。お子様からご年配の方まで幅広く愛されています。

TONKATSU

Signature Tonkatsu Sauce

We offer our signature “Tonkatsu Sauce” a blend of spices fresh fruits and vegetables bringing out the natural sweetness and robust flavor.

In the beginning “GINZA BAIRIN”, the founder Mr. Nobukatsu Shibuya was not satisfied with the existing sauce (Worcestershire sauce or Demiglace sauce), and he looked for a completely new sauce with the thickness suitable for a pork cutlet. He formulated and developed “Bairin Special Katsu Sauce (Thickened Worcestershire sauce)” using his experience of being pharmacist. It has sweetness from various kind of fruits and vegetables, such as apples and onions and also has its own unmistakable flavor.
