Nothing says comfort food like a bowl of fresh tonkatsu and at Izakaya Umakamon, they sure know how to make this drool-worthy dish the right way. Think deep fried crumbed pork that is perfectly crispy on the outside, while still deliciously tender on the inside. This Surfers Paradise hot spot serves up authentic Japanese cuisine in an bustling izakaya environment, so it’s best washed down with an ice-cold Japanese beer (or two)! If you visit on a chilly day, the hot and spicy pork kimchi nabe is sure to be a winner. This delicious hot pot features succulent pork, plenty of greens, kimchi and spicy broth, which will awaken your tastebuds. If you’re looking for a light snack, these guys also specialise in fresh sashimi – best paired with sake.
