Saboten Philippines is an Original Tonkatsu House from Shinjuku Tokyo, Japan since 1966 is now in the Philippines. They have also branches in Hong Kong, Korea, Thailand, Singapore, Canada and China.
The ambiance of Saboten Philippines is very homey characterized by the very intricate designs of printed cloth supported by wood in every corner of the restaurant. The lighting is very appropriate for intimate gathering or corporate meetings that required a very neat and peaceful place. They have also divider for the privacy of the guests if they need it.
We had Mille-Feuille Katsu accompanied with grated radish ponzu , unlimited miso soup, rice and shredded cabbage. Every Katsu is well presented with is very japanese with minimal garnish yet neat and tempting to be eaten for its rich golden brown color.
