After munching and munching the entire day, YABU was up next. Yes I was really full already but who can say no to YABU.
Because innovation is the key. That and the creative minds behind Yabu wanted to give more choices to its loyal customers. As such, they introduced the KATSU BURGERS.
Before going to the main dishes, MOZZARELLA KATSU STICKS (260Php) were placed infront of us. Coated with golden panko, tossed in a special blend of Furikake, served with spicy aioli dip.
Without a doubt, this has got to be one of those gooey and worthy dishes in their snack section. The Cheese literally melts in your mouth. Perfect!
Moving on to the main event, the KATSU BURGERS.
First up is the CRUNCHY EBI KATSU BURGER (420Php). Filled with chunks of black tiger prawns, topped with shredded cabbage, shiso leaves, Japanese pickles, spicy aioli and caramelized onion jam in a toasted brioched bun.
I enjoyed the shrimp factor of this katsu burger. Having real bite sized shrimp inside the patty made my mouth jump in joy. You see, I love shrimps. The bread partnered well with the shrimp. Love it.
On the other end of the spectrum is the MENCHI KATSU BURGER (390Php). Menchi katsu stuffed with double cheese combo of cheddar and havarti. It also has shredded cabbage, shiso leaves. Japanese pickles, spicy aioli and caramelized onion jam.
Look at this baby. This cheesy burger perfection. One bite in and you are greeted with a lot of cheesy goodness. Partnered with the fries, you can't go wrong with this. Be thankful, they just started to serve this just this NOVEMBER 23, 2015. Last Monday! So enjoy enjoy enjoy!
To end the meal, LAVA CAKE (185Php) was served. Warm and molten laval cake with miso butterscotch served with a scoop of ice cream and caramel cookies.
Look at that chocolate center. Gooey and oozing out of the cake. The use of the miso butterscotch was plain genius. Who would have known?
