Simple Eats: Crazy Katsu

21 Jan

This week has been a week of new discoveries and interesting finds. I have heard a lot about the Teacher’s Village more particularly Maginhawa street and have long wanted to try out the restaurants in the area. Got the chance to do so yesterday when I got picked up by my friends at home. The village evokes a different ambiance. We saw a street lined with various hole in the wall or house-converted restaurants. Lots of interesting restaurants to try!

Yesterday, we decided to try Crazy Katsu first. Its a small Japanese restaurant that can comfortably sit around 30 or so people. Simple but nicely designed, the place seems to be a staple for students studying around the area. Team Manila seemed to have designed the logo and maybe the interiors of the place. A Team Manila shirt with the Crazy Katsu logo is being sold for PHP500.00.

I liked this hanged art –

Chicken Katsu (PHP145.00)
Said to be their specialty, I decided to order this Chicken Katsu. I wasn’t disappointed. It was sweet and spicy at the same time. Nicely fried, the skin was crispy but the meat juicy. It was nicely seasoned. Perfectly balanced with the cabbage, this had me eat a bowl of rice.

Gyoza (PHP120.00)
Nothing special but good nonetheless. It came with a bowl of rice. I wanted it taken out but the price is the same so got it served.

Katsudon (PHP150.00)
My friend Gani had a bowl of this Katsudon. The meat was oh so soft! I actually liked this versus the more expensive version of Yabu and this one is just a fraction of the price!

Fish and Vegetable Tempura (PHP140.00)
Nice and thinly battered, this is a good alternative for those on a diet. The okra is a bit tough but the whole dish is delicious. Simple and fresh ingredients were used for this dish.

Pudding (PHP80.00)
Far from tasting like a pudding, this is more like a Leche Flan. Equally yummy!

Can’t wait to try more restaurants in this Teacher’s Village area! 🙂
