Best Katsu in Manila: Yabu House of Katsu Glorietta Mall Makati | Kurobuta Katsu. Yabu House of Katsu is a Japanese restaurant that pioneered the tonkatsu (fried breaded pork chop) served with unlimited Japanese Rice and Cabbage concept in the Philippines. Their first branch was opened in SM Megamall in November of 2011 by John Concepcion who is also the CEO of Unilever RFM Ice Cream Inc. which makes Selecta Ice Cream. Currently this brand has grown to 10 branches around Metro Manila making it the #1 Katsu specialty restaurant in the Philippines.
The secret to their success is that their Tonkatsu recipe comes from Chef Kazuya Takeda who is a partner and the head chef of Tonkatsu Takeshin a Michelin Star restaurant in Tokyo and their quality promise that if you are not satisfied your meal will be free. Today we visit their newest branch at Glorietta Mall in Makati which is modern and decorated with Black and White Manga panels to illustrate how katsu is prepared.
Notably they also offer imported Kurobuta pork which is also known as the Black Berkshire Pig, It is called the “Kobe beef” of pork due to rich marbling, softness and flavor. This was tasty and we were impressed with the authenticity of the offering as they even had wooden ladles to scoop the Tonkatsu sauce just like in Japan! From their menu we would highly recommend the Hire Kurubota Katsu Set and the Hire Katsu Set.
