What is this?

Can anyone tell what this is?

Bonus points: Can anyone tell where this is? (Hint: It costs $6.50.)

Unrelated question: do you find this new 3 megapixel iPhone camera takes better shots than the old one?

Hi! It looks like one of Japanese rice bowl, KATSU DON. $6.50 sounds very reasonable even in Japan for KATSU DON… I’m not sure but it might be Sushi Yoko or Umezono.

Looks like some porky and runny egg goodness over rice to me. Katsu donburi?

Forgive my slackage. This pile of yum business is indeed katsudon — fried pork cutlet over rice in a sauce made of onions, eggs and broth. This particular version comes from Sushi Avenue in Decatur. It isn’t bad — and not a bad deal at all, for $6.50). My complaint is that the pork cutlet is so thoroughly coated in sauce that it gives up any bit of crunch. When it’s sopped with sauce and still a little crisp at the edges? Hoo mama.
When I lived in Japan I used to go to a katsudon specialty shop where the owner had an old dresser that he filled with breadcrumbs. Just before service, he packed the pork cutlets in the breading and then fried them to order. It was fantastic.
