She asked me what I wanted to have for dinner and because I just recently had Italian, Filipino, American, and Chinese cuisine, I opted for Japanese. She immediately recommended Yabu.
Now I have heard of Yabu but could not remember much about the feedback. I just remembered that there was a do it yourself thing that a lot of people liked and talked about. Looking at the photo below, it was actually the katsu sauce that you make yourself.
They give you a small bowl of sesame seeds that you grind to your hearts content and pour 3 mini buckets of sauce into. The servers would actually give instructions which I found helpful because I did not have to watch other people on how they do it so as not to make a fool of myself.
Above is the sesame seeds before I beat and swirled it to a pulp and below is me pouring the sauce.
Michy, who is the author behind Dekaphobe, and I have not seen each other since February though we do keep in touch via SMS and twitter. She's one of the sweetest girls I know and also one of the nicest. She has claws but she only brings it out when needed.
She ordered Hire and Seafood Mix, I ordered the Chicken Katsu which I shared with FM in the hopes that I won't add more fat to my body. Besides, the Chicken Katsu was pretty big that I dared not order another one.

The other thing I loved is the rice that they used. It was sticky rice and not some rice that was made to look sticky. They really had the real deal and it simply justified the cost of Php95 for an extra cup.
FM loved the dishes as well and even as I am typing this, I am already planning on how I can bring my family and his family to this place. My Mom would definitely love it since the meat is super soft and can simply melt which is how she likes her meat.
