We tried out the newly-opened Yabu: House of Katsu joint a couple of days ago. As the name implies, they specialize in katsu, which is meat, usually pork or chicken, breaded then deep fried.
I liked that they were still open past the regular mall hours, and most of the food are still available, unlike some of the restaurants in at the Mall of Asia. Since the place is still new, it was still spanking and clean. The interior was bright, and the walls were covered by huge cartoons that has a story on making katsus. On every table is a set of spices essential to enjoy one’s food.
We also given some black and white sesame seeds (I didn’t know that there were black ones) to pound.
As soon these are powdered coarsely, and the aroma of sesame hits you, sauce had to be poured on it. When your katsu comes, dip and enjoy!
These are what we had, complete with miso soup, unlimited cabbage which you can pour over with vinaigrette or sesame dressing, and a fruit bowl:
Prawns, which one could easily mistake for tempura, but… oh well…kain lang ng kain 🙂
Rosu (pork with fat trimming)
Katsu’s prices were a little steep, but I gotta tell you it was worth it. I almost didn’t finish my set, and I felt a little lugi because I didn’t go for second helpings of rice and cabbage. Di bale, sinulit naman ng asawa ko haha.
Next time, I want to try the chicken and menchi (I love anything with cheese on it!!). We will definitely be back.
