Yoshinoya is one of the popular Japanese fast food restaurants in the world. With over 1,200 outlets in Japan, USA, Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, Indonesia & Philippines, we know that it’s definitely a big & important brand.
Here in the Philippines, there are currently 5 branches. Yoshinoya started operations in the Philippines under Century Pacific Group (makers of Century Tuna) back in 2001. I personally discovered Yoshinoya in 2002 and I immediately fell in love with its beef bowl.
Whenever I order the beef bowl, I always order for extra sauce. It was soooo yummy and delicious especially seeing the beef and rice swimming in that yummy special Yoshinoya sauce. Delicious!!!
As much as I love beef bowl, lenten season is coming up. A lot of us do practice the rule of not eating meat during that time. In relation to that, Yoshinoya launched 2 products this lenten season. Both products will only be available till May 31, 2011.
- Yoshinoya Bangus Kabayaki (Php 140)
Deep fried, lightly-breaded fish fillet poured with Kabayaki sauce. The Bangus Kabayaki was a clear winner in my book among the 2 dishes being offered by Yoshinoya this lenten season. The sauce was sweet, very, very tasty and the fish was heavenly. It’s not surprising that they use Century Bangus for this dish. Yoshinoya is owned by Century Pacific Group anyway.
- Shrimp Katsu (Php 140)
Another limited offering of Yoshinoya is their Shrimp Katsu. It’s deep-fried breaded shrimp patties served with mixed vegetables and plain rice. I enjoyed Bangus kabayaki more but it doesn’t mean that this shrimp patties weren’t delicious. I was able to bring home some for my mom and this was her choice. It really depends on your preference. Shrimp Katsu is also available in jumbo plate with beef bowl (Php 185).
See the smile from the group? We really enjoyed the food served to us. I’ll definitely be visiting Yoshinoya soon. I will get more of Bangus Kabayaki and my ever favorite, beef bowl! 😀
