Katsu In Calgary: You Can Get Your "Cheese Pull" Fix At This New Restaurant

Cheese-lovers are going to fall for this cheesy katsu in Calgary. Made out of stretchy mozzarella wrapped in pork and then fried, the crispy delight at Kim's Katsu is just waiting for you to do a "cheese pull" for the 'gram. They just opened this year and this will be a new hang out spot for anyone who loves cheese and Japanese food.

You don't have to wait until stampede to eat yourself silly with deep-fried foods.

The katsu at this place looks out of this world, and their cheese flavour is so ooey and gooey that you can pull it apart and watch it all stretch out in a glorious "cheese pull" for the ages.

Also on the menu, you can try other unique katsu flavours like beef and prawn. If you can't decide, they have a sampler dish, too. Dishes come with rice, miso soup, and shredded cabbage.

They even have a "Snow Katsu" on the menu — a fried and breaded pork cutlet topped with a mountain of snowy mozzarella cheese that comes served in a cast-iron pan.

Once your cheese craving is satisfied, you could go for dessert at Calgary's new spot for soufflé pancakes for the ultimate foodie date night.

Every day, they bake fresh bread so they can make their own panko breadcrumb coating to give all their food that classic crunch.

Eating here is more than just sustenance — with all the fixings, tiny dishes and unique offerings it's a whole experience that should definitely be on your Calgary restaurant bucket list. 

They're open seven days a week from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. so it's easy to drop by for lunch or even a late dinner.
