Lunch at Yabu

So…

Today my mom and I decided to check out the Greenbelts for some clothes shopping. The trip was quite successful, especially with Uniqlo and Cotton On being right beside each other!

For lunch we decided to eat at Yabu, the House of Katsu, a Japanese restaurant boasting that they “think of nothing else but creating perfect katsu”. According to their website, the panko (Japanese breadcrumbs) are made fresh everyday, which results in “long, light, crispy flakes”.

Before ordering our main courses, my mom prepared her Katsu sauce. According to the menu, the Katsu Ritual to properly prepare the sauce is to: “grind, pour, mix, dip”.

When I noticed the Mango Shake on the menu, I knew I had to order the drink. My favorite drink was deliciously sweet and creamy, without the annoying ice shavings!

For lunch my mom decided to order the Premium Kurobuta Pork Set (90g). According to the website, the 3/4 inch cutlet (made from pork with a trimming of fat) comes with “unlimited white rice or organic brown rice, miso soup, Japanese pickles, organic cabbage with your choice of dressing and a bowl of fruit”.

The meat was delicious and melt-in-your-mouth soft, and I am definitely going to come back to try other dishes on the menu – especially the curry dishes! One of the non-food things I enjoyed in the restaurant was the comic strip of a boy enjoying Katsu, which I will leave as the final picture on this post.
