The opening of Jewel Changi Airport welcomes a number of new restaurants at the airport. One of these new restaurants is Tonkatsu Ma Maison, located on level two of Jewel Changi Airport. Known for its breaded, deep-fried pork cutlet, this is my go-to place whenever I am craving for some tonkatsu. On top of that, I can eat to my fill with the free flow serving of cabbage, rice and tonjiru
Rosu Katsu Set 4.2/5
My usual order is the classic Rosu Katsu Set ($20.80++ for 120g / $22.80++ for 160g). The deep-fried pork loin set consists of tender pork cutlet with cabbage, rice, tonjiru and pickles. Depends on your appetite, the rice comes in three sizes; small (150g), medium (200g) and large (300g). You also have the option of plain steamed rice or the healthier multigrain rice. Besides the rosu katsu, there is also the hire-katsu, the leaner pork fillet. I prefer the rosu for its fattier and juicier cut.
Mameton Set 4.2/5
If you find that everything in the menu looks good and can't decide what to order? I would recommend the Mameton Set ($25.80++). It consists of deep-fried pork loin, pork fillet and prawn. You can try each of everything. The set comes with cabbage, rice, tonjiru and pickles.
Cheese Mille-feuille Katsu Set 4.5/5
There is always a reason to re-visit with its seasonal items. Currently, the seasonal item is the Mille-feuille Katsu Fair. There are 3 items - Mille-feuille Katsu Set ($25.80++), Umeshiso Mille-feuille Katsu Set ($26.80++) and Cheese Mille-feuille Katsu Set ($26.80++).
I decided to try the Cheese Mille-feuille Katsu Set, which comes with layers of sliced pork cutlet with a cheesy core, encased in crispy breadcrumb batter. This is my new love now. The texture from the layered pork slices is even more tender than the rosu, complemented by the molten cheese. I really hope they can keep this permanently on the menu.
Tonkatsu Ma Maison has never disappointed me, and it has always maintained its quality and standard. The tonkatsu is thickly cut around 2-3cm with crispy breadcrumb batter that is delightful but not greasy. It definitely sets the "gold' standard for a good tonkatsu!
Note: This is an invited tasting.
