Tonkatsu Sauce (とんかつソース), Okonomi Sauce, Yakisoba Sauce & Takoyaki Sauce

Tonkatsu Sauce

We refer “sauce” (pronounced So-su ソース) as a thicker version of Worcestershire sauce.  So-su comes in three types: thin, medium-thick, and extra thick.

Thin sauce is called Usutah So-su (ウスターソース) and this is similar to Worcestershire sauce.  The medium-thick sauce is called Chuno So-su (中濃ソース).  Finally, the thick sauce is Tonkatsu So-su (とんかつソース) which is used for Tonkatsu or other deep fried dish.  The major sauce brand in Japan is called Bulldog (see the picture above).

Otafuku Sauce

In addition, there are Okonomi Sauce for Okonomiyaki (savoury pancakes), Yakisoba Sauce for Yakisoba Noodles, and Takoyaki Sauce for Takoyaki (Otafuku brand).
