Mille-Feuille is a French cake.  Meaning “thousand sheets,” a traditional cake consists of just three layers of pastry and two layers of cream or jam, rolled multiple times to create hundreds of layers.

Uncertain what is the intended benefit of applying the mille-feuille technique to tonkatsu.  The thin layers of pork were dry and crumbly and didn’t hold together – much better to have a solid, juicy cut (see most recently 9.009 Grated Radish Tenderloin Tonkatsu).

  1. Maybe they already knew they wouldn’t get anything juicy from their cut so they opted for “not tough” with thin slices? Anyway sounds bad.
