KATSU FOR 25
Yabu held an exclusive dinner for the most influential online peeps last June 12 NOT to celebrate Independence Day (well, partly) but to enjoy the latest menu selections The House of Katsu has to offer.
Sumptuous food + good company (with good looking people) = recipe for a successful night of food indulgence (or pigging out in my dictionary).
Now what you are about to see (starting with the first photo) might overwhelm you with intense cravings for the ever famous Katsu of Yabu and please, don't fight it. Resistance is futile. Enjoy!
What: Yabu - Katsu for 25
…and some short words from...
Now let the Hunger Games begin!
Of course Yabu, being a gracious host, allowed us to order the "usuals" which are the faves among the regular customers!
Of course, a visit to Yabu is not complete with the "sesame seed grinding" experience!
And a first for me! A taste of Sake. Bow.
And here are the good looking, good company I was with that night at Yabu...
More group shots!
Speaking of many firsts, it was my fist time to meet Dani Barretto. Don't let her good looks and slim physique fool you. She ate everything on her plate! Yes, big bowl of Katsudon and all! Haha. Peace! It was my honor to take her outfit shot as seen HERE. Mahal ko na 'tong batang 'to!
And here's me with my unkempt hair and Mr. Pogi smile. Uy si Chef, Mr. Pogi din! Hehe.
I had a hard time doing this post because the thought the photos of the Katsu gave me was unbearable! So unbearable that I had to go back to Yabu a week after just to satisfy my Katsu cravings and this time I tried the best curry I've tasted in my life! As seen on Instagram...
Hungry yet? Follow Yabu on Twitter and see what the clamor for the best tasting Katsu in town is for yourself!
