Katsuya is officially opening its first Vancouver location on Robson Street.

The Toronto-based Japanese fusion tonkatsu chain opened a location in Coquitlam last fall, and now the brand is opening its second BC location at 1471 Robson Street.

Slated to open “soon” according to signage, the new eatery can be found right next to Menya Itto’s upcoming first North American location.

The concept is known for making its breadcrumbs fresh daily and also for offering 13 different varieties of katsu, including a selection of pork, chicken, fish, and even cheesy sweet potato.

Here’s the full list of the varieties list on Katsuya’s menu:

  • Katsuya Original
  • Carbonara Katsu
  • Red Carbonara Katsu
  • Sweet Chili Katsu
  • White Snow Chili Katsu
  • Garlic Chili Katsu
  • Curry Katsu
  • Hot Spicy Katsu
  • White Snow Spicy Katsu
  • Garlic Spicy Katsu
  • Terri Mayo
  • Japanese Katsu (traditional)
  • Brick Cheese Katsu

There are some drool-worthy appetizers up for order well. Think Fries with Honey Butter Powder, Karaage Chicken Thigh, Tartar Shrimp, Cheese Crabmeat Croquette, Tako Wasabi, and Takoyaki too.
