You haven't had porkchop until you've had the Tonkatsu at Maisen. It's down a side street in Ura Hara, but there are signs directing you there from Omote Sando, just look for the yellow sign with a line drawn flower logo. The restaurant is surprisingly big, and we had no problems getting at 2pm. The menu is confusing at first, but then we firgured out to look at the laminated guide that told us first about different cuts of pork, then the different pigs served. We ended up trying the Benibutan fillet and the Kurobata loin. The latter was meatier and stood up to the special apple sauce just for it. Every bite was delicious and memorable. There is also a takeout counter next to the main doors if you feel like a sandwich instead, but if you've never been there, the experience is worth it.
