One of the largest islands in Japan, Sado Island (佐渡島) is just 40 kilometres off the coast of Niigata Prefecture. Once an island of exile as well as full of gold, the Sado Island that we know today is a cultural treat and a relaxing getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. There's plenty to uncover in this literal gold mine of an island!
In Niigata city, local restaurants and eateries offer their own saucy version of Katsu Don – aptly named as "tare katsu don". Simply take a bite of our Tare Katsu Don ($17) to see how the sweet and savoury sauce spreads in your mouth and takes the beloved katsu don to a whole new different level!
Complete your meal with the Sparkling La France ($6.20) drink that is lovingly crafted with Niigata Prefecture's famous La France variety of pears. Known for its distinct aroma and melt-in-your-mouth texture, the La France pear is pulped down into a smooth puree and topped with sparkling soda to make this refreshing beverage!
