The Comfort Food Guide to Vancouver: Tonkatsu With Curry Rice at Dosanko

This series maps out our editors’ picks for Vancouver’s best and most legendary comfort foods. We encourage readers to steer us towards their favourites in the comments or by using the hashtag #ScoutYVR on social media.

I’ve previously written about the crazy deliciousness of Dosanko‘s outstanding Japanese curry rice dish (with its chopped pork, pickles and cap of melted cheese), but when you add 140 grams of panko-crusted, heritage Old Spot pork loin on top it’s some next level lunacy. It has all the ‘comforting’ elements – from crunchiness and creaminess to meatiness and gooeyness – not to mention enough umaminess to ignite a palate well-rinsed in cold beer.
