After I got invited to taste the Lenten offering of Yoshinoya, I couldn’t stop but feel uneasy. I need to step foot inside a Yoshinoya Restaurant! I was craving for beef bowl for the longest time.
It was heavenly when we entered the restaurant finally, I was excited to finally have my serving of Yoshinoya’s famous dish!
Yoshinoya must be my favorite Japanese fast food restaurant in Manila. Come to think of it, are there any other?
I appreciate the beautiful interiors of Yoshinoya. I find it adorable that fast food places here in the Philippines are investing their resources in making their restaurants look so much better. They can actually compete already with normal restaurants. Would you believe in the picture below that it was just a fastfood restaurant serving quick affordable Japanese food?
We were starving and I believe we ordered too much! What the heck! We still finished all our orders. We had a complete meal with soup, appetizer, main dish, dessert and drink!
- Gyoza (Php 90)
As much as I enjoy gyoza, I felt that the price wasn’t fast food-ish. Php90 for a 4-piece gyoza, too expensive
- Pork Tonkatsu Bento (Php 145)
You have a big appetite? Then Yoshinoya’s bento is for you. You can choose between tempura, mixed seafood, pork tonkatsu & Japanese fried chicken bentos.
My friend, however, has chosen Pork Tonkatsu. Bento has rice, veggies & tofu included too!
- Beef Bowl (Php 99)
Beef Bowl was the sole reason why I kept going back to Yoshinoya. Gee, I was so giddy when I was eating my order of beef bowl. hahaha! I had to order for extra sauce (Php5) as it was the sauce that made the dish taste so magical.
- Beef Bowl Power Meal
Just in case you want a full meal then you can order the power meal. It has red iced tea, beef bowl, miso soup and coffee jelly! Yum yum!
I was able to satisfy my craving and it did affect my day. So funny that if you get something you want, your day seems to be so complete right after. So that was how my day went when I had my serving of Yoshinoya’s Beef bowl. So happy… so jolly!
