Saboten: Japanese Cutlet Specialist in Serendra, Taguig

First of all, I tried my first Saboten in Hong Kong International Airport last June 7, 2013. I had a great experience with their pork tonkatsu so what more if I tried the branch in Serendra Piazza, Taguig. 

Where does Saboten came from?
Shinjuju, Tokyo first opened its door on 1966. Now it has one of the largest Tonkatsu chains in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Canada and China with over 500 shops. Raintree Restaurants, which operates a collection of innovative and successful diing outlets now partners with Saboten to bring the famedmouthwatering signature Tonkatsu to the Manila for the very first time. -

Present Time. Since I was craving for Japanese food last Wednesday, I pushed myself and my friend to eat at Saboten. Usually this place would have long lines And it's rather busy during dinner time so we aimed for lunch time. So lucky for us, there wasn't any. :D

That's Me! w/ the Special Sharing Set
We were surprised by the size of the platter when it was served. It occupied the half table already. I have to say that it was able to surpass my expectations for this dish.

Special Sharing Set

2 Deep-fried Shrimp, 1 Loin Cutlet 65g, 2 Crab Cream Croquettes, and 2 Rolled Cutlets (Cheese and Asparagus)

Miso Katsu Tenderloin
Everything I was looking for in a Katsudon was superbly delivered by Saboten. Crunchy, non fatty, lightly breaded and tasty pork strips, with sweet Katsudon sauce with a heavy serving of rice (that I myself can't finish) made up my meal.Of course it still came with the miso soup and unlimited shredded cabbage.

We're both first timers here and it was a really fun and satisfying experience the food here were really good and delicious, Saboten is worth every peso that you'll pay.
