The pork and chicken katsu melts in your mouth... You have an option to also get a combo meal with either an udon (hot) or soba (cold) noodles. If you're super hungry, go with the chicken because their portion is much bigger than the pork. Parking is valet but there's also street parking available.

Good value

Much better fried chicken than the other "Korean" fried chicken restaurant.

The portions are large, soup, condiments, rice and cabbage salad.

Everything is deep friend. I tried the fish one time, it was okay. Affordable lunch and dinner.

big portions good price

this is good. i always get the chicken cutlet (it eems to be the one with the largest portion) the chicken is always moist n juicy, never dry. the miso soup is good and sauce is good. the only thing i dont like is the salad with yellow sauce on it. not sure what it is

So Satisfying

I really like this place. I got the pork cutlet which was a really good deal for $8.95. It came with a mountain of nicely shredded cabbage salad (which is actually washed btw!), rice (which has a nice bite to it), miso soup, pickled radish, pickled chilis, sesame seeds (you grind it yourself at the table, which is kinda fun) which is mixed the cutlet sauce. Although the cutlet is fried, it is not oily. The meat was tender. The meal really fills you up.

The Best Ton(Don)katsu in Koreatown

Wako's is a gem hidden in a midst of an arcade, a pool hall and other stores in this mini-mall on Wilshire and Alexandria. The place itself is moderately nice (a typical Korean one), but the food is a totally different story. At first, the waitress will give you a bowl to crush your sesame seeds and after it's done, she'll pour on the sauce. Good sauce, BTW. On to the main course: tonkatsu! It is thick but tender and the panko crust is not oily at all. Really soft and wonderful texture. I have a big appetite, so I get the tonkatsu/udon combo and it's a good meal. I've tried all the possible meat katsus and they're all very good. Well worth a try if you're in K-Town

Best Donkasu place

Went here for lunch the other day - very impressed by this simple Donkasu place. They spealize in Donkasu dishes (breaded meats and fish) - and there's no better place. The portions are good - and the best part is the dipping sauce - you get to grind your own sesame seeds and then they add the ponzu sauce. Perfect compliment for the food.

Good Donkatsu

You may have to wait 15~20 minutes if you get here during lunch hours but the wait is worth it. You can can keep yourself occupied by grinding sesame seeds for the dipping sauce while you wait for your food. Try to stay away from the combo menu because the donkatsu itself is decievingly filling. I think Wako may be the best katsu place outside of J-Town...
