We love Japanese food and we can’t always eat in the expensive restaurants every time we crave for Japanese food. We love to try new restaurants and hopefully find a cheap alternative to our cravings. Crazy Katsu has been opened for a while now and I’m just so happy that they decided to open one in the South as their first branch was way up North.
They have a nice interior, no frills and very unpretentious. Their menu is very simple and not overwhelming; they are not a ‘full’ Japanese restaurant as they do not serve sushi or sashimi; well, as the name suggests they focused on Katsu dishes and they really have good dishes plus the big kicker is they’re really cheap.
Some of the yummy food of Crazy Katsu —
1) Miso Soup – at Php30 this is really cheap and bonus is, it’s delicious.
2) Chicken Katsu Salad – my personal favorite; has generous amounts of chicken and vegetables and the sweet, spicy, tangy sauce is mouth watering. At Php120, this does not disappoint. You can also request for a non-spicy version.
3) Fish and Vegetable Tempura (Php140) – I love Tempura but I’m not a huge of this version. It was ok, but nothing special and I’m not sure if they really don’t have a Tempura sauce but we were given a different dipping sauce for this dish.
4) Pork Ginger – perfect mix of sweet and salty; for Php140, you’ll get a generous serving of pork strips with shredded cabbage.
Now on to their specialty Katsu dishes —
1) Pork Tonkatsu (Php140) – the serving was big considering the price; the pork was tender inside and the breading crunchy on the outside.
2) Chicken Katsu (Php145) – I think has a different breading but nonetheless, it was yummy as well.
3) Katsu Curry (Php190) – I’m not a big fan of curry dishes. It’s not the first thing I’ll order in a restaurant but I’ll definitely try it when someone orders. Hubby likes this dish so this is what he ordered. It has a generous amount of curry sauce and a few pieces of potatoes and carrots.
Overall, Crazy Katsu is a great go to restaurant for a cheap katsu craving.
