What is it in Japanese food that people go crazy about? I suppose it’s because in Japanese cuisine, the food is either fried or grilled. The food always look healthy and fresh and the presentation looks good too.
Well for one thing, the street food of Japan is becoming popular until now because of its flavorful taste. Thus, it’s now a comfort food. The traditional Japanese food is healthy, well-balanced and very tasty.
Here is the good news to Japanese food lovers!
Mr. EJ Pasia and his co-owners opened a Japanese-inspired café, KATSU COUNTRY CAFE, in Davao City serving delicious tonkatsu sets, Ramen, milkshakes, desserts and many more.
The owner personally likes katsu. With this, he started researching about it which he thought was easy to prepare but found out that it was tedious. Luckily, they developed the bun for the delicious “Shibuya toast”. They started with the breadcrumbs and that was the secret ingredient. They baked it everyday alongside with the other chefs.
Mr. EJ was proud to say that everything they launched in his restaurant was researched in Japan since they have a partner Chef who lived there. They collaborated with him whether it’s correct or not. From the breadcrumbs, they have a distinct taste of Katsunami.
“Japanese is related to precision and design. Since I am an architect, I thought to myself – Why don’t I put up a Japanese inspired restaurant since I appreciate it very much and I am into Japanese food. I have been traveling to Japan most of the time and I want to bring Japan to Davao City because I believe that food is a key ingredient defining one’s culture,” says EJ Pasia, owner.
