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. πŸ™‚ 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? πŸ™‚ Continue reading “Yabu: House of Katsu”

Foodtripping in Maginhawa QC #2: Crazy Katsu

Katsudon in Crazy Katsu

Pork Katsudon (around PHP 140 – 150)

It’s a simple and right in your face kind of restaurant. After hearing the raving of people from my social network, I decided to have a taste of the best seller Chicken Katsudon. Crazy Katsu is located in Maginhawa Street, the popular food strip along the residential area of Teacher’s Village Quezon City. It’s a collaboration of two drummers – Shinji Tanaka (drummer of Gaijin and SLEX) and Bryan Kong (drummer of Taken By Cars). Who says that aside from Music, they can’t collaborate in the food business? πŸ™‚ Continue reading “Foodtripping in Maginhawa QC #2: Crazy Katsu”

Japanese food tripping in St. Kilda, Melbourne Australia

Sunset in Melbourne

I’m currently in Melbourne for my training  and actually it’s been three days since I’ve been here. Most of the dining places around my area (St. Kilda, South Melbourne) are cafes so I don’t have the opportunity to really dine inside a cafe after work because they close at 3 or 4 pm.

Kozui Green Tea


Green Tea Latte and Roasted Green Tea Latte

As me and Sha are walking along Tomas Morato, we spotted Kozui Green Tea. I’m not much of a green tea fan since I’m more of a Chai Tea Latte fan and African Sunrise Tea Latte fan. But Kozui certainly changed my views on green tea. πŸ™‚ Continue reading “Kozui Green Tea”

Bubble Tea

I’ve always been curious about Bubble Tea, probably because it’s so colorful πŸ™‚ When Karla and I were in Megamall one time, we decided to cool down in this joint. We ordered the Taro Milk Bubble Tea and Green Tea Milk Bubble Tea. As you can see there’s vanilla ice cream on top. We actually got full when we drank this one. As for me, I was so thirsty I actually finished it up probably in 10 or 15 minutes πŸ™‚ Continue reading “Bubble Tea”
