One bite and you will know the value of this magical dish: The delicate crunch of the bread batter coating gives way to soft, lightly salted pork meat that is close to the softness of sponge cake.
WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT US
This is what sets Yabu: The House of Katsu apart from its counterparts. They didn't try to imitate what something from Japan; they actually brought Japan here! The owners partnered with Chef Takeda Kazuya (of Tokyo's Tonkatsu Takeshin) and expert restaurateur Teiji Nakamura to give Filipinos a glimpse of what it's like to enjoy your katsu in downtown Tokyo.
The food was beyond fantastic. And the service was impeccable. I think many restaurants are forgetting that good food service is also part of the dining experience. I mean, even if you have the most mind-boggling delicious food in the world, but your service sucks, it ruins the whole experience. So I applaud Yabu because they make sure that their guests enjoy not only their food, but also the whole Yabu experience.
Dining at Yabu is a 360-degree experience, it’s not only about the perfect katsu. It’s the modern playful Japanese interiors, it’s the friendly vibe of the staff, it’s the hustle from the customers, and it’s the warm welcome of the store’s manager, Mon, that makes you coming back at Yabu.
Yabu House of Katsu, Manila’s favorite Tonkatsu place, launched its newest branch at Robinsons Magnolia. Last August 21 2012, celebrities, personalities and bloggers were invited to witness this event.
W.O.W. It was a very huge set, comprised with chicken, black tiger prawn, squid, oyster, eggplant, and pepper. Well, except for the tiger prawns, you’d be in for a guessing game every time you take a bite of each piece as they all look the same. Breaded and fried to golden crispness.
