Tonkatsu Sauce

  • Tonkatsu Sauce |

    We refer “sauce” (pronounced So-su ソース) as a thicker version of Worcestershire sauce.  So-su comes in three types: thin, medium-thick, and extra thick.

    Thin sauce is called Usutah So-su (ウスターソース) and this is similar to Worcestershire sauce.  The medium-thick sauce is called Chuno So-su (中濃ソース).  Finally, the thick sauce is Tonkatsu So-su (とんかつソース) which is used for dishes like Tonkatsu.  The major sauce brand in Japan is called Bulldog (see the picture above).

    Okonomi Sauce, Takoyaki Sauce, Yakisoba Sauce |

    In addition, there are Okonomi Sauce for Okonomiyaki (left), which is similar to Tonkatsu sauce, Yakisoba Sauce for Yakisoba Noodles (middle), and Takoyaki Sauce for Takoyaki (right).
