Not Your Ordinary Katsu

Probably the best katsu I have ever tasted. What the “melts in your mouth” catchphrase to M&M’s is, to Yabu its jewel – the kurobuta pork tonkatsu. And it has that nice crunch at the outset.

With a P500 price tag, this better deliver – and it did. It also comes with unlimited servings of sidings – miso soup, rice, thinly sliced cabbage, fruits (this time it’s watermelon, not sure if it changes with the season), and probably including pickled veggies, which I didn’t get to eat much due to being so full already. You get to create your own sauce as well, with a number of condiments at your disposal. You can make it sweet, spicy, mild, some bitter note, what have you. Whatever floats your boat, really.

The "kurobuta" pork tonkatsu - the crown jewel in Yabu's menu. A nice crunch on the outside and soft, melt-in-your-mouth meat inside.

This food is so decadent and luxurious, it’s definitely not something an ordinary drone worker like me would eat on a daily basis (unless, of course, you are the type who happen to have the cash to burn). However, I feel like it’s something worth spending or saving up for during special occasions, especially for big groups, family gatherings, and the like.

It was a spur of the moment idea my friends came up with. And of course, when it comes to food, I didn’t think twice joining. One does not have to do much imposing, you know? I am easy to get just like that, haha!
