THE PICKIEST EATER'S ANNIVERSARY GIVEAWAY #4: YABU: THE HOUSE OF KATSU!!!


          Ok so I finally caved. I seriously debated with myself whether I should give these Gift Certificates away or not, simply because Rina wasn't able to attend Yabu's "Katsu for 25" Event, and she made me promise her I'd take her to try the new Seafood Katsu 2. But in the end, the clamor of the public was just too strong to ignore. 

      And because you asked for it.. you got it! 

      Ladies and gentlemen, I bring to you The Pickiest Eater In The World's Anniversary #4: 

      P2,000 worth of Gift Certificates from Yabu: The House Of Katsu!!!


       
          Without a shadow of a doubt, Yabu's claim to fame is their authentic Katsu that Japanese chef Kazuya Takeda brought to the country. The awesomeness on the plate passed his high standards of what Katsu should be. From the Quality of the pork, to the Panko bread crumbs (a Panko bread crumb maker was flown in from Japan.. A machine not an actual person by the way), down to the even the type of oil used (Canola), 



          The Rosu Katsudon is personally the best I've ever had. "Rosu" pork means its the presence of the fat played a huge part in it. The thick chunk of meat was juicier than any Katuson I had ever tried, and the mixture of the egg and on the crispy crust went perfectly with the softness of the Japanese white rice 



          But what you definitely don't want to miss, are their two new dishes. One of them was the dish that Rina wanted to try.. Yabu's Seafood Katsu Set 2. Its a combination of Salmon Katsu, a large juicy Tiger Prawn, a Hiroshima Jumbo Oyster, and the newest kid on Yabu's block.. The Creamy Crab. 




          Their newly launched Special Katsudon is something I'm going back for the next time I visit Yabu. It was a beautiful medley of flavors brought on by different components that fused together seamelessly into one amazing bowl of awesomeness. 
             
Ok, I know what you're thinking..
 "Shut up already and tell me how to join!!!"



It's quite easy, actually! But I've added a Rafflecopter Widget at the bottom of the page to make things even easier!
