Introducing #TheYabuDonSeries !

I was so fortunate to be one of the first to try the newest additions to Yabu's menu: #TheYabuDonSeries

The first part of the Yabu Donburi Sets include two masterclass creations: the Salmon Don and the Katsu Curry Don.

But first, I had a glass of Honshea (Php 220), one of the Yabu craft cocktails created by Erwan Heussaff. Honshea is a mild mix of sake and lemon, just enough to relax while waiting for the food. 


I had the Katsu Curry Don (Php 480 for Rosu/Hire, Php 470 for Chicken).

Katsu Curry Don

Served in a hot stone pot, I was served Rosu Katsu on Japanese curry and melted Mozzarella. I love the blend of the cheese and Japanese curry. I honestly wasn't a huge fan of curry, but this dish made me change my mind. It could be quite heavy, it could be shared by two. I would love to try hot curry next time. 

Another showstopper is the Salmon Don (Php 490), an inch-and-a-half thick salmon steak with crispy salmon skin and salmon roe, served on teriyaki rice with sauteed bell pepper and eggplant.

Salmon Don

The teriyaki rice blends well with the taste of the salmon, and the crispy salmon skin adds texture to the rice. I'll have this again and nobody expect me to share. I love the Salmon Don! :)

#TheYabuDonSeries will be available at all Yabu branches starting today, March 25, until May 31, 2015. Get a chance to win a trip for two to Tokyo with every order of Yabu Donburi Creations.

Thanks to Candice Zialcita of Yabu for having us.

  1. Hello, this off-topic.

    Have you already tried Puzzle Gourmet Store & Café?



    1. Hi obiboymiles! No, I haven't tried it yet. Hopefully soon. :)

  2. The katsu curry don looks suuper yummy! I haven't tried curry with cheese, so I'm super curious with how that will turn out :)

    1. I hope you'll try it soon, Phylicia! :)

  3. I was also not a big fan of anything with curry. But when I tried the katsu curry of Yabu, and also of Saboten, I immediately changed my mind! :)

  4. Oh my gosh! I want to try their Salmon Don! The hubby and I both love salmon. Hihi! (Ayan, nagutom na ko... LOL)
