Yamazaki


Just because you appreciate fine (read: "expensive") Japanese food doesn't mean that hearty rice meals no longer hold any appeal. Just a few meters away from Seryna is Yamazaki, a grocery cum diner where you can find Japanese folks hunched over a bowl of ramen chopsticks in one hand and some manga in the other. This place is relatively cheap, fast, and quite satisfying. There's no sashimi on the menu but if you insist on ordering some, they'll source it from Kikufuji just around the corner. We've tried the gyoza, the katsu curry rice, and the saba rice - all under Php 180.00. Draft beer is pretty cheap, at around Php 30.00 a mug. And for dessert, just cross over to the grocery and get some yummy mochi ice cream balls.

Is this the katsu curry rice and saba rice in one? Am not sure I'll go for quantity even if it's cheap. Doesn't look so appetising to me... Do love gyoza though, and draft beer for 30p, too good to be true.

Hej guys!
Thanks for your reactions on my Q on UP. Haven't been to Diliman for ages, and maybe the attitude has changed...

What is in the picture is the katsu curry. Brown goo hardly looks appetizing but it looks better than it tastes. Saba was not so good, though.
