Tokyo Tonteki, UP Town Center Katipunan

     Screen shot 2014-02-23 at 10.31.14 PMTokyo Tonteki opens its first branch outside of the country and is located in UP town center, Katipunan. It is a well known restaurant in Japan for its soft meat.

We ordered 6 different meal sets and 2 side dishes. The Tonteki set and the Pork loin and steak was my dads and my sisters orders. These two actually were just the same, except for the pork loin was cut into small strips. The ginger pork loin set on the other hand was really delicious except for itSONY DSC was a bit harder than expected. The cream croquet was good except a little on the Filipino taste of sweet. It tasted a bit more of like a desert. The best of all the sets we ordered was the Tonburg Steak, Stir fried mushrooms and the Sandubu. The Sandubu was actually my most favorite of the 3 favorites. The meat was very soft and it was cooked very well and the spice complimented the contents very well.

My mom noticed though from the open kitchen that most of the meals were pre set. Which is why the orders were coming in so quickly and people were coming and going in an instant. It is very Japanese like service. Except for the mushrooms, she saw that they were freshly made there. I have yet to try the Tokyo Tonteki in Japan. SONY DSCMy mom mentioned to me that maybe the beef was not so soft because they are using locally made meat here. Nonetheless it was pretty good, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a new place to eat. Another plus is that your order comes with unlimited RICE and VEGETABLE refils. For what its worth, Its definitely a good price.

PRICE RANGE: 350-500 per set meal per person

RECOMMENDATIONS: Sundubu, Tonburg Steak, Stir Fried Mushrooms

LOCATED AT: First floor left side, UP Town Center, Katipunan Ave
