Closing 2013 with Lunch Date at YABU

After Christmas and before welcoming the new year, my husband and I was able to find some time off together. Actually, we went on a quick errand in SM Aura to look at some shoes at a Palladium shop. While we were there we checked on the list of movies showing. We're kinda hoping that The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug was still showing. IMAX didn't turn us down. We were very happy that IMAX has a special viewing of The Hobbit in the middle of the MMFF Festival.

So we bought our tickets around 1pm, movie starts at 3pm, we still have 2 hours to find a good restaurant and enjoy our lunch date. The choice of restaurant was YABU. As a couple, we always find YABU a good place to enjoy good food, ambiance with friendly service. We only hop into another retaurant if the waiting line in YABU will take more than 30minutes.

But on a beautiful Monday afternoon, even with a long waiting line, we were seated immediately and by the window with a fresh view of Bonifacio Global City.
Most of the time, our orders goes around the usual Tonkatsu set or a Seafood set. With our recent visit, my husband had a Original Katsudon Set and I went for a Chicken Mixed Seafood Set.

Turf meets surf: Chicken, Black Tiger Prawn, Squid, Oyster and Eggplant & Pepper.

Just a friendly advice, in case you can't figure out what to order, I greatly recommend YABU's Chicken Mixed Seafood Set. It has everything your palate will enjoy. It is "the set" if you want to try more than one specialty.

I was pumped up enjoying my meal. I had a refill of everything: Japanese rice, miso soup, fruits, even the pickle and not to forget my bottomless house blend iced tea. I don't go for refills in any restaurants, but at that moment, I told myself not to hold back on a second round. It's been awhile since I enjoyed a real meal.  Being sick for a week before Christmas was such a drag. So when I was feeling much better, I didn't waste a single second savoring each moment when I get to taste something beyond my kitchen.

Our lunch date to end 2013 was remarkable. As we enjoyed our food, we also cherished every minute of the short but sweet time given to us as we take a break from being Papa& Mama and just be plain Dolf & Enchie.
