Tonkatsu Shinjuku Saboten

Tonkatsu Shinjuku Saboten / Since 2002

At home or work, enjoy a restaurant class tonkatsu lunch box!

Take home rich, restaurant quality

The main branch in Shinjuku was founded in 1966. From student cafeteria it grew into a nationwide restaurant delicatessen, bringing restaurant flavor that can be enjoyed at home. Recommendations include “Sangen Mugi Pork Loin,” Raised in a stress-free environment, this Sangen “wheat pork” has a juicy sweetness that is delicious inside the crispy coating. “Sabaten Bento” (mini cutlet, mackerel fillet, with fried shrimp) (895 yen plus tax) is also popular.

Follow the monthly menu

In addition to standard tonkatsu, we offer a croquette menu made from different ingredients every month, cutlets using choice cuts of domestic pork, and Kenbi pork made with linseed oil.

We’re community-based! Conversation with local people is our pleasure at work
