This past weekend, I was craving hamburger steak, so I decided to go to a Japanese restaurant called Midoh Japanese Kitchen in Rowland Heights. When you hear ‘Japanese Restaurant,’ most people assume it’s sushi. This restaurant, however, doesn’t sell sushi – they have Hamburger Steak, Tonkatsu dishes, Curry, Udon, and many more. There was a long wait because they were short on staff, but in the meantime, it’s nice to watch some Hayao Miyazaki movies while you wait.
Their Hamburger Steak comes in the hot skillet during dinner time. I went to Midoh for lunch, so it’s served on a normal plate. The patty is made of pork and beef, and cooked well-done. It comes with rice, and some potato wedges, steamed carrots, and string beans on the side. You also get a small salad, and your choice of miso soup or corn soup. You also have four different sauces to choose from – Demi-glace, Onion, Teriyaki, and Ponzu. I went with the ponzu sauce.
