If I had a quarter for every time a ramen store employee corrected me when I said "tonkotsu" to "tonkatsu" I would have... a dollar. Not much but still shockingly more than zero.

Yeahhhhh I don’t know if they’re trying to “correct” me or if they just say what they’re used to but I just keep on keepin on. Especially since tonkatsu is a distinctly different dish. The difference between pork bone broth and fried pork cutlets

I have to keep myself from saying "that sounds delicious but I don't think you serve that here..."

Yeahhhh, although some good places do serve tonkatsu as well! I love me some katsu curry

TIL. Thank you, it's been frustrating me!
