A Date with the Hubby!
While its important to spend quality time with the children, it’s definitely as important to spend time with the husband! One Saturday night, Hubby and I decided to have a date! We were supposed to watch the Sarah G and JLC movie, It takes a Man and a Woman, at the Robinson’s Magnolia. But tickets were already sold out for the schedule we want to watch. We decided to just have dinner instead then went home afterwards. We were able to watch the movie the next night though. We have heard about Yabu months back, but it was only now that we were able to try it out. We checked out their menu and here are what we chose for the night, the Menchi Katsu Set, the Seafood Katsu Set and the Tonkatsu Set. All sets are served with unlimited Japanese rice, miso soup, Japanese pickles, cabbage with sesame dressing and a bowl of fruit. Upon checking their official website, Yabu.ph, the Menchi Set is a delicious mix of minced premium beef and pork covered in crunchy panko filled with oozing creamy cheese. Its definitely a must-try for cheese lovers like me! We tried the Soft Shell Crab under the Seafood Katsu Set Category, it is composed of one luscious Japanese soft-shell crab, coated generously with fresh panko, fried to crispy perfection. This one’s very yummy! Imagine, you can eat the whole crab! For the Tonkatsu set, we chose the Rosu Set, it’s a 3/4 inch-thick Rosu (porkloin), with a sliver of glistening fat trimming its edges and deep-fried in crisp golden panko. This set is nothing out of the extraordinary. But still yummy too! For an average eater, eating at Yabu can be very overwhelming! I love their concept of everything unlimited. You can really eat to your satisfaction! I also love that you make your own sauce. Its like you play and pound the sesame for fun first before actually using it as sauce to eat your Katsu! Really a place to check out. Worth every peso you’ll spend!
