Weekend Eats: Katsu Cafe

First things first: HOLY CRAP, I NEVER THOUGHT THINGS WOULD GET THIS BUSY!!! Between work (2 jobs), going to the gym, having an actual savings account, and hanging out with friends on the weekends, I must say… I’m starting to feel like a well-rounded adult! Bonus: I have cats, too!

(Now if only I could find the time to update this boring blog on the regular…)

It’s been a while since I last had katsu. I just can’t justify spending PHP350+ and having to go to a mall just for Yabu (especially knowing I would go overboard with the unlimited Japanese rice to “make up for it”) and I’m not too crazy about Crazy Katsu (ha ha). Yesterday, I had mega cravings for deep fried breaded pork so Sanya and I headed over to Katsu Cafe along Maginhawa Street for dinner.

Affordable nomz!

I ordered a Pork Katsu set while Sanya got a Pork Katsu Curry Rice— at my insistence— because we can’t order the same thing, OKAY. Also got gyoza because bitches love gyoza.

Sanya being a dick lol

Here r r ratingz:

Pork Katsu Set – 4/5
The pork wasn’t as fatty as I would have liked and I guess that’s a good thing but goddamnit, I love fat. The rice and miso soup (my favorite carb and soup, respectively lolz) were fantastic; could eat forever. Too bad the cabbage wasn’t unlimited!

Pork Katsu Curry Rice – 3.5/5
Sanya says that while the pork was tender, the sauce should have been on the side because it made the bread soggy. The curry sauce was also store-bought.

Gyoza – 2/5
Sanya took a bite and put it back. Frozen/store-bought, she said. Apparently, most restaurants don’t make their own gyoza because it’s more economical that way. How annoying so here is a gyoza recipe from Del Monte Kitchenomics :D

Overall, I liked Katsu Cafe. The restaurant interiors are super nice and service was reasonably fast (took less than 15 minutes for our food to arrive). Can’t wait to go back and try the Salmon Katsu Set!

    IT LOOKS SO MUCH LIKE YABU! But the prices don’t harhar. Maginhawa is coming up with a lot of good eats. Must take my eating pants up there.
