A katsudon that is simple, but also very profound.
"Tarekatsudon" from Niigata Prefecture is a simple katsudon with a couple of slices of cutlets dipped in a sauce. It looks just like a sauce katsudon, but tarekatsudon is flavored with a shoyu-based sweet and salty sauce, so it tastes totally different from a sauce katsudon. The cutlets are usually slightly thinner than the regular cutlets, but the cutlets and the flavor of the sauce differ depending on restaurants, so you can enjoy tasting different tarekatsudon from various restaurants. It is a very simple dish made with rice, cutlets and sauce, but it is also a very profound dish.
