Yabu: House of Katsu at SM Megamall

Two weeks ago, Justin and I were finally able to try Yabu: House of Katsu at SM Megamall when his Dad brought us there for dinner. While waiting for our orders, each of us was given a small bowl with black and white sesame seeds that we need to grind and mix with katsu sauce. That would serve as the dipping sauce for our pork and chicken katsu.

Justin did all the grinding, pouring and mixing. He really enjoyed doing that! We ordered three complete meals, namely: the Chicken Katsu Meal for Justin, the Rosu Special Katsudon for hubby and the Rosu Katsu Curry for me.

Chicken Katsu Meal, Php195.00

Chicken Katsu Meal is a Kids Katsu Set Meal which had chicken, potato croquette, edamame (young soybeans in a pod), Japanese rice, cabbage and a bowl of fruit, and served with curry or honey mustard sauce. Justin ate all the chicken that he dipped in the katsu sauce with ground black-and-white sesame seeds but ignored the rice, veggies and fruits. He also tried my miso soup, and he loved it!

Rosu Special Katsudon, Php330.00

One of the Special Katsudon Sets is the Rosu Special Katsudon which hubby ordered. This had miso soup, Japanese pickles, unlimited cabbage with sesame dressing and a bowl of fruit. This is what he always orders at Yabu each time he and his officemates drop by for a visit. If he keeps ordering the same food, then it only means one thing: he really likes it.

Rosu Katsu Curry, Php375.00

This is one of the Katsu Curry Sets. An order of Rosu Katsu Curry includes the following: unlimited Japanese rice, miso soup, Japanese pickles, unlimited cabbage with sesame dressing and a bowl of fruit. I really wanted to know how their curry sauce tastes like. You have three choices (Regular, Hot, Very Hot); I chose β€œHot,” which was perfect because the spiciness was tolerable. Hot, spicy and thick curry sauce perfectly complemented the crispy, tender and juicy katsu.

That was another hearty dinner for the three of us!

    I will surely pay this house a visit when I come home…been reading good reviews and the photos surely prove how good the food is! Thanks for sharing!

  2. My kids love Yabu… both order full sets though as the kiddie meals are no longer enough for them. I used to always order Rosu but I’ve recently discovered how good their Hire is. πŸ˜€

  7. my first Yabu experience was also at that branch. Their servings are big no?

  8. Yabu has been one of my favorite restos! πŸ™‚ There are other katsu places opening up here and there, but I’m still loyal to Yabu. Haha! Love their Rosu Special Katsudon too, but if you have the chance, try my faves: Menchi and Rosu Kurobuta Katsu. πŸ™‚
