Introducing Ojeje, a Japanese-style pork cutlet restaurant in Seoul, South Korea. Korea is a country close to Japan, so I travel to Japan a lot and eat a lot of Japanese food. One of the popular foods is pork cutlet. Only Korean-style pork cutlet is eaten, but Japanese-style pork cutlet is also popular.

Ojeje’s pork cutlet uses nice qulality pork, and the soft taste of meat is excellent along with its unique crispy fried clothes. In addition to pork cutlet, restaurant also offer various menus such as zaru udon and curry, which are also one of the representative menus.

Reservation / Waiting

Ojeje is a very popular restaurant and you always need to wait. You can come to the store and wait or make a remote reservation through the mobile app “Tabbling.” The tabling app requires only korean and korean phone numbers, so it is difficult to use. However, remote reservations can be made after a certain period of time after the meal time starts, so you can eat earlier if you register on-site before that. Therefore, I recommend you to visit the restaurant at the start of the meal if possible.

English menu / order

You can check the menu at the entrance of the store. There are not only Korean menus but also English menus.

In the case of an order, if you call the order, you order the menu from the staff in front of you in advance and enter the seat. Please note that you cannot order additional menus except for drinks.


I ordered Tender loin and Loin as a menu with fried shrimp, and added matcha udon and Curry.

Ojeje sauce

When you sit down, staff will serve you pickles, pork cutlet sauce, and tartar sauce that you can eat with fried shrimp. There is salt next to it that can be dipped in pork cutlet, and citron dressing that can be poured into cabbage salad.

Tende loin

Ojeje’s tenderloin tonkatsu is moderately greasy and tender. You can enjoy it with salt and wasabi, or dip it in the sauce.

Ojeje Loin pork cutlet


As shown in the picture, the tenderloin is covered in gravy. When you take a bite, you can taste the bold flavor of the meat, which is distinct from loin, and the meat is also very tender. Eating it with the cabbage salad next to it provides a refreshing contrast.

Kadaif fried shrimp

Kadaif fried shrimp

Fried shrimp is also famous in Ojeje. Although the price is a bit high, I recommend that you order it. The dish consists of two shrimp piled up in a thin batter, surrounded by thinly kadaif. The texture is very good. In particular, the tartar sauce served with it has a light and refreshing taste, which pairs well with the heavy fried foods.

Matcha udon

Matcha udon

The green matcha udon is Ojeje’s signature dish. Delicious tsuyu sauce is served with spring onions and grated radish and wasabi. Dip the udon noodles in the sauce for a great taste. The plain udon noodles pair perfectly with the tsuyu sauce, and the noodles are well-kneaded, resulting in excellent elasticity.

Ojeje curry


If you order pork cutlet, small rice is served. It’s a delicacy if you eat additional curry together. It goes well with pork cutlet.

So far, I introduced Ojeje, a pork cutlet restaurant in Seoul, South Korea. While the wait for a table was long, the food was delicious, and I would highly recommend Ojeje to anyone looking for well-prepared Japanese-style pork cutlets in Seoul.
