Nagoya isn't a top destination in Japan for many, but I took a couple of days to taste what is actually one of Japan's biggest cities. My first stop was Nagoya Castle, recognized for the Kinsachi golden tiger-headed carps at its top.
Nagoya is known for a variety of dishes, but are best known for tebasaki (chicken wings) and for aka-miso (red miso) dishes. I tried their misokatsu, juicy pieces of tonkatsu sizzling in a coat of aka-miso.
One of the most well-known Nagoya misokatsu spots is Yabaton. The katsu itself is nice and tender, and instead of the usual sauce, the aka-miso is somewhat sweet. Definitely worth a try if you're in town.
