Tsunami’s Tonkatsu, a crispy pork cutlet breaded in Panko — Japanese breadcrumbs — served with grilled baby green beans and shiitake mushrooms. The entrée is part of a larger EatLafayette special, where diners can order soup, salad, an entrée and one sushi roll for $20. Tsunami opened its doors at 412 Jefferson St. in January 2000, offering many adventurous Lafayette eaters their first taste of sushi.
