The Healthy Menu at Tonkichi
I don't know how long Tonkichi has had this on their menu, but it was interesting to see that they had a healthy section that featured things like this ton shabu set. Just as with the proper version of shabu shabu, this cold salad featured the requisite goma-dare and ponzu sauce for one to dip those thin slices of lean pork into. It wasn't anything to go nuts over, but I suppose it really was healthier than tonkatsu. It was amusing to see deep fried vegetables in the same "healthy" section of the menu either way.
