A year ago, one of my friends told me about his go-to Korean place in Maginhawa (which I later found out wasn’t really along Maginhawa, but a side street called Malingap). The thought of visiting Donday Restaurant slipped my mind, up until my best friends insisted that we give Korean cuisine a try. The plan was to work our way up to Sariwon, so we chose Donday first from of our EatList.
How can you possibly go wrong with just PHP 299 for unlimited pork belly (and some cooked dishes)?
One of my crazy “plans” is to taste everything on the Yabu menu, because 2013 was mostly comprised of “eat at Yabu” moments (spontaneous and unplanned at that). This led to the The Yabu Diaries tag on this blog, which obviously didn’t make much progress, all because of my miso katsu addiction. It was always a choice between the favorite against the never-been-tried-but-appetizing katsudon varieties. It helps that my mom tries a new dish every now and then… that is, until she ordered the seafood katsu set. Haha!
Prior to both of us being stuck with personal favorites, she took the plunge and ordered the Menchi Katsu. The website describes this item as “a delicious mix of minced premium beef and pork covered in crunchy panko filled with oozing creamy cheese.”

Beef, pork, cheese. What an irresistible mix.
