Saboten joins the Katsu Craze in Manila

At Saboten
Specialty Course Hana (Flower), PhP 525

It was a Friday night when we decided to go to Bonifacio High Street. We really did not have any plans that night and we were thinking where to eat. So we walked from the 7th Street in Bonifacio High Street until we reached Serendra. Then, we found Saboten. We tried to check out their menu and even though we’re 7th on the list, we patiently waited. 🙂 Continue reading “Saboten joins the Katsu Craze in Manila”

Yabu: House of Katsu

Hire Tonkatsu Set at Yabu - 2
Hire Tonkatsu

When Sharlyne passed by Yabu, she suggested that we should try it for dinner. Since we really don’t usually go to SM Megamall, I guess it’s best to take a risk and to try something new. Upon arriving Yabu, the restaurant was full and we have to wait. I guess the food was that good huh? 🙂 Continue reading “Yabu: House of Katsu”

John and Yoko, Cosmopolitan Japanese

I’ve learned that it’s one of Marvin Agustin’s business ventures. Continue reading “John and Yoko, Cosmopolitan Japanese”

19 pieces of sushi and maki

Yearning for Japanese food yet you want something that could fit in your 100-peso budget? Well, this 19 pieces of assorted sushi and maki that costs 99 pesos from Maki Mi Sushi is a must try. We discovered it in the heart of SM Megamall’s food court. The largest serving consists of 150 pieces of assorted sushi and maki which costs PhP 780.00. But if you like only 4 or 5 pieces, the cost is from PhP 25.00 to PhP 30.00. 🙂 Continue reading “Maki Mi Sushi at SM Megamall”

The Conveyor Belt Sushi at Genji

Conveyor system for sushi in a Japanese restaurant in Croydon, England

The video above that you are seeing right now is actually similar to the one in Genji. The restaurant is located in Greenhills and is a must-try for those who haven’t eaten there yet. The plates on the conveyor belt are color coded and each color corresponds to a price. It was my first time to try one and I was pretty amazed of the ingenuity of Yoshiaki Shiraishi, the inventor of the conveyor belt sushi, otherwise known as sushi train [source].
