Shrimp Pork Balls (₱179)
If you must know, one does not need to spend a lot of money to be able to get good Katsu around here. You just have to know where to look. I was meeting with my Bren for lunch last week and I thought we should give King Katsu a try. King Katsu is the latest restaurant to emerge that offers katsu dishes. I’ve heard that they’re not new in this business, though, as they are also the brains behind Big Better Burgers (BBB).
As you all know, I love tonkatsu. I wouldn’t move into a next katsu place without giving this a try.
My friend, Bren
King Katsu is located at the Sky Garden in SM North EDSA. It’s a small place which can seat around 30 people. It’s clean and has a romantic interior made possible with wooden accents and yellow lights. It also has some mirrors around, giving an illusion of space.
Bren ordered the Shrimp Pork Balls set above. It was served with japanese rice, miso soup, and angel hair cabbage with dressing and katsu sauce on the side. I tried one of the Shrimp Pork balls and at first bite, I knew that should have been my order. It was crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. It was very delectable and full-flavored.
My order was the Pork Katsu Curry (₱152). It was served with japanese curry sauce with carrots and potatoes, japanese rice, and miso soup. The pork katsu was very crispy and the pork was tender. The serving was quite big too and I didn’t even finished the rice.
The staff were friendly and in a good mood considering what a gloomy day it was.
I recommend this place if you’re looking for a katsu place to satisfy your katsu cravings without burning a hole in your pocket.
