Chicken Thigh Skewers – $10.0

Ton and Co is a Japanese restaurant in Windsor whose entire menu revolves around their specialty Tonkatsu – a Japanese fried pork cutlet dish, served with various different sauces and on a bed of fluffy rice. It’s refreshing to see such a modern take on a classically Japanese dish, especially when such extra-special care and technique is taken. With fresh Panko breadcrumbs and 3-day aged pork, Ton and Co is definitely a unique Japanese restaurant that Asian food lovers should try – especially considering the plentiful portion sizes!

Pork Striploin with Dark Miso Sauce – $23.0

The good fat: The highlight of my night was definitely the ox tongue skewers – not sure what magic happens to make them so unimaginably tender and melt-in-the-mouth, it’s as if the ox tongue had 11+ wagyu marbling… cooked for 18 hours with a light togarashi sauce this is one dishes that I won’t ever forget!

Pork Striploin with Caramelised Onion Gravy – $24.0

Moving onto the mains, the poached salmon was very pink and tender, with a delicate honey miso glaze and the tastiest mushrooms on the side! I started my tonkatsu journey with the “best” – Ton and Co’s signature pork tomahawk – 400 grams of the highest marbling pork cutlet and the first bite captured the crispy panko crumb, revealing the warm and juicy pork flesh underneath. It was great to sample the various sauces Ton and Co presented with the other Tonkatsus – a personal favourite was the dark miso sauce, as the saltier sauce lent itself nicely to the subtler flavours of the pork inside.

Matcha Cheesecake with Hojicha Icecream – $9.0

The dessert is everything I love about Japanese sweets so it was definitely a great way to end the night. I LOOOVE matcha (so there is a bit of bias) but it also means I’ve had the good and the bad. Luckily Ton and Co was the good. The matcha cheesecake was balanced with the earth green tea bitterness, highlighted even more with the hojicha (roasted tea) icecream!

The bad fat: The specialty of the restaurant means that Tonkatsu is really the best thing to try – so if you’re worried/not a pork fan it’s definitely a bit harder for flexibility. After the tomahawk first, the rest of the pork in comparison lacked that extra fatty juiciness which had made my first bite so delicious.

FAT-O-METER: 4.5/5
