Yabu: The House of Katsu in Alabang Town Center.

T and I always go back to Yabu: The House of Katsu.  That's why we immediately said yes to Mish who arranged a dinner at the Yabu branch in Alabang Town Center.

We started with a couple of appetizers.  You can order any two of the following for P205 ($4.50++):

Spinach Salad with Goma Sauce
Chilled Japanese spinach mixed with sweet coma (sesame seed) sauce

Young green soybeans

Iidako Salad
Baby octopus marinated in sweet savory sauce and tossed with crisp slices of cucumber.

Superior Potato and Egg Salad
Chunks of potato and egg, tossed in creamy mayonnaise mustard  dressing

Seaweed salad topped with ebiko.

Chicken Salad
Fresh seasonal vegetables tossed in shredded chicken and crisp wanton strips in mustard vinaigrette

I ordered my new favorite Hire Oroshi Katsu Set (P430/$9.50++) which is katsu topped with grated radish and spring onions served with citrusy, ponzu-based sauce.  For a refreshing take on this dish, squeeze the grapefruit on the katsu then pour the sauce.

T got the Hire and Seafood Katsu Set (P540/$12++) which has hire, black tiger prawn, cream dory, scallop, eggplant and pepper.   Both katsu sets come with unlimited servings of Japanese rice, miso soup, Japanese pickles, cabbage with your choice of dressing, and a bowl of fruit.

Thank you so much Mish and Nino for this yummy Yabu dinner! It's always fun hanging out with you guys :)

Clockwise: T, me, Jeff, Jane, Mish, and Nino (missing Patty & Bong!)

And just the week after that, T and I went there again to have dinner.  T got the Jumbo Oyster Set  (P520/$11.50++) which has four Hiroshima oysters.

Here's a closer look at those jumbo oysters.

Coincidentally, I also wanted oysters.  Good thing there's an option for an ala carte Hiroshima Oyster order (P115$2.50++ per piece).  I got two pieces.

I also got a 120g Kurobuta Pork Set (P590/$13.13++) which has a 3/4 inch premium cutlet made from pork with a trimming of fat.

Great katsu, good service, homey ambiance..  This is why T and I keep coming back to Yabu! :)
