This is a Gyukatsu (牛カツ)(beef cutlet) specialty restaurant.

Gyukatsu is a Japanese dish consisting of breaded and fried beef cutlets, similar to tonkatsu (breaded and fried pork cutlets) or chicken katsu (breaded and fried chicken cutlets). Gyukatsu uses beef as its main ingredient instead of pork or chicken.

The beef used in gyukatsu is typically thinly sliced, tenderized, then breaded and fried until crispy and golden brown. It is usually served with various side dishes such as shredded cabbage, rice, tonkatsu sauce, and sometimes miso soup or other side dishes.

Gyukatsu is gaining popularity in Japan as a delicious alternative to traditional tonkatsu, prized for its rich beef flavor and crispy texture. You can enjoy this dish at a variety of restaurants across the country, but if you're in Asakusa, try it at Asakusa Gyukatsu, which specializes in breaded and fried beef cutlets.
