    What do you get when you mix chicken katsu and incredible sauces?

    Kanji brings traditional katsu curry to our food market, along with delicious variations including honey butter katsu, BBQ katsu and katsu teriyaki.

    For the uninitiated, katsu is like a Japanese chicken schnitzel, or for the really, really uninitiated, like a really big, very delicious chicken nugget. At Kanji, the chicken katsu is then drizzled with one of Lee’s truly delicious sauces – and topped with crispy onion bits, spring onion and salad, if you want it, and served with steamed rice. There are also gyoza and a delicious udon soup on the menu, with vegetarian options available.
