I have a few favorite places that I enjoy eating in when I have the “day off” from cooking.
One of these places is Yabu.
I love so much about our visits to this crispy Katsu place. I love that my kids get excited to go. Whenever they hear about the plans to eat at Yabu, they don’t need reminding to get dressed or to brush their teeth. In fact, sometimes, they are the ones rushing us to get ready to leave.
I love that they opened a branch here in “the south.” Their first branch opened in SM Southmall awhile back. BUT GUESS WHAT? We now can have YUMMY Katsu ANYTIME!!
Just yesterday we were invited to the tasting/stress test here in ALABANG TOWN CENTER! I suppose I didn’t get the memo that we were supposed to really try something new, instead of ordering our regular dishes that we are used to. (I’m a creature of habit when it comes to ordering in most restaurants.)

Another thing I love about YABU? They have kids’ meals, and for my kids-they are perfect. We order for them, they clear their plates and everyone is happy. Miggy is like me. He orders the same dish every time so he is very much like a creature of habit in that sense. Diego and Gia are always willing to try something new, so if Miggy and I are curious they are always willing to share a bite.
Yabu has generously sponsored 3 sets of gift certificates to celebrate my blogiversary AND their newest branch opening in ATC. The gift certificates are each worth Php 500 and can be used in any branch. Simply present your GC’s before you order to let your server know you’ll be availing of their generosity.
Mechanics are simple:

3) Follow me on twitter
4) Like the Momma ‘N Manila FB page
5) Tweet about the give away.
6) Leave a comment on this post about your FAVORITE Yabu dish.

Nothing could ever beat the tenderness of the rosu katsu curry meal set. It’s the meat that melts in your mouth! :]

So happy Yabu is opening in Town coz it gets crazy crowded in Southmall. Love their Katsudon and Lorubota Tonkatsu Set.

The Seafood Katsu Set 2 is definitely the most mouthwatering set. With the melt in your mouth oyster, crab, salmon and shrimp, it undoubtedly makes me want to go back again and again and again for more!

This is the first authentic katsu in the Philippines. The idea there is to make katsu like a hamburger, make it as popular as a hamburger. And that has been the response so far. People are lining up to try the first authentic katsu,
