URBN Bar & Kitchen-24.jpg

Starting at 12mn, URBN BAR gets packed with party people from all over the metro. It's a popular events place for launching products and holding company events because of its spacious interiors and industrial-looking ambiance.

But one of the things I love about URBN is the contemporary comfort food they serve during dinner by Chef Benjo Tuason of Relik fame.

Here's our latest URBN experience...

SABOTEN Philippines: The Original Tonkatsu Flavor Now in Manila!

SABOTEN is the original and largest Tonkatsu chain from Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan. It has been serving its famous tonkatsu since 1966 and has branches in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, China, Hong Kong, Canada, Thailand, and now in the Philippines. :)  The restaurant's name means "cactus",  inspired by the plant's vitality and persistence despite harsh conditions.

Although the SABOTEN launch was pre-empted by YABU in Manila, we love how they offer different ways people can enjoy katsu and the unlimited-everything experience. :)

Here's a rundown of our visit to Saboten Philippines...

The SISIG. A Filipino favorite that is traditionally made with pig's ears and served on a sizzling plate. This humble dish is said to originate from Pampanga but is now known outside the country, thanks to the feature of renowned chef and television host, Anthony Bourdain, who raved about it in his show No Reservations.  

A lot of restaurants and bars serve sisig but only Chef Bab of Mercato Centrale can offer eight variants at one time. Even during the former Distrito Market, he has been dishing up this specialty, but now, he is offering foodies a chance to customize their sisig. Want it hot? Request for more chili. Want it as a meal? Order it with rice! Want a vegetarian version? Go for fish or tofu sisig. All orders are cooked on the spot, too, ensuring its freshness and deliciousness.
