Mr. Katsu serves rice meals in new and exciting ways with its own take on katsudon, omurice and cha-han. Started in 2017 by a pair of entrepreneurs who believe in offering better quality ingredients at affordable prices, Mr. Katsu was established as proof that making budget-friendly meals without sacrificing quality and taste can be a successful hit.


Its golden-fried and flavor-packed katsudon complemented with their delicious sauces is always a bestseller, while its delectable omurice and chahan prove to be a solid staple among customers. There is a wide range of sauces and fillings, helping ensure that customers will never get bored of the menu. They are also allowed to choose their deep-fried meat, whether it’s pork, chicken or fish, then combine it with their choice of sauce (ranch barbecue, cheesy garlic, spicy kungpao, teriyaki and gravy) served with vegetables over rice.
