YumYum: Yabu Katsu House SM Megamall


Despite all the problems that comes our way, one thing that the BF and I never fail to do is enjoy a good meal together. After a grueling week over a month ago, the BF came with me to SM so I can pick up my ISKIN New York Transformation Kit at Flawless. We really weren't planning to eat out but I thought we both deserve a break. So I invited him to dine at Yabu: The House of Katsu, located at the Atrium of SM Megamall. After waiting quite a while for a table, we were ushered in to a corner booth with a comic wall art showing a snippet of Yabu history. :)

Of course I started playing with the ritual of making our Katsu sauce, grinding the semase seed. :)
I find this extremely relaxing!

Showing you here the condiments for the protein and salads. All tasty especially the sesame dressing. :)

Ooohh! Here's the yummy sauce for the Katsus!

And here's my first masterpiece. :)

And here's our order, a piece of Kurobuta Pork Set.
3/4 inch cutlet made from rosu or pork with a trimming of fat. Kurobuta, also known as the Black Berkshire pig, is the world's finest pork. It is called the kobe beef of pork, due to its rich marbling, softness, and flavor

I died and went to heaven with just the smell of it!

Oooh! Cabbage goodness!

I love meat and I especially love pork. And this is definitely the best katsu i've ever tasted! The crispiness is just right and the meat is cooked to perfection. Not too tough nor too soft. Partnered with unlimited rice and cabbage, I was in food heaven!

The kreng-jai piece of Kurobuta pork. :)

And since the pork set was bitin, we ordered Menchi katsu.
A delicious mix of minced premium beef and pork covered in crunchy panko filled with oozing creamy cheese, Php350.00.

Not as delicious or as mouth watering as Kurobuta but tastes really good, too. It's like meatballs, but flatter and coated. The creamy cheese, though, was sensational and made the meal perfect for me.

Oozing cheese is always a good indication of a tasty meal. :)

Happy with Yabu!

I'm not a foodie nor am I as adventurous as my friends, but I definitely recommend Yabu as the next resto that you visit (if you haven't still). There is a reason why the place is always packed. The food is worth it. Especially is you love your pork as much as I do. :) I'd love to try more of Yabu's dish in the future. Thank God, they now have one in SM Aura. I bet it's still going to be packed but at least, it's nearer and more accessible to where I live.
