Katsu don
San Francisco, September 16, 2015—
WE SPENT MUCH of the day at the Exploratorium, and developed an appetite along the way. On our last visit we ate in the "restaurant"; this time we were content — and better off, I think — at the little café near the entrance.

Of the half-dozen substantial dishes on the blackboard, it was the Katsudon that appealed the most to me. A pork cutlet, breaded and fried and sliced into manageable strips, with egg — as a batter, I suppose, before a second cooking — served with leaves of a green I don't know, and some shreds of pickled pepper, on an enormous serving of boiled rice. Not my normal sort of eating, but not bad at all: and now back into the Exploratorium fray…
