My Unforgettable Katsudon Experience at Yabu

I am a big fan of Katsudon. One of the very popular food in Japan, Katsu means 'cutlet' and has many varities of cutlet dishes from 'Pork Katsu (don), Chicken Katsu (don) and Beef Katsu (don).

"Don" means a round bowl, so when you have read the menu and "Don" is always incorporated with the dish name, you can imagine that the meal is serve with the bowl. Rice bowl, to be exact!

Variation of Sauces
I was really surprised when we dine in at Katsu. Reading their menu gave us a lot of information about 'Katsudon,' like
introducing their own style of sauce. This is something new to us because we know Katsudon is always serve with soy sauce.

Our Target: Yabu - House of Katsu for Mega Food Sale last Friday, August 17.

Last week was the grandest food sale happened in SM Megamall. With over 100 food establishments, shoppers gather for another sale experience. There were different gimmicks and food features of different selection of food establishments. The ambiance that night was like a 'town fiesta' wherein foods were being offered at a very discounted prices.

Luckily, we landed at Yabu. That was our official target at that hour.
