Tucked in a quiet corner along Jacinto Extension stands Katsu Country, a recently opened Japanese-inspired café in Davao serving tasty tonkatsu sets, ramen and creative pasta dishes. Super easy to find the cafe, as the sleek and very inviting millennial pink interiors can easily be spotted from the outside.
Here are some of the ‘must try’; my personal faves.
Kani Salad as starter. Generous Kani strips, chilled lettuce, tangy Japanese mayo sauce. 110 Pesos a bowl to share.
Katsudon rice topping . Deep-fried pork cutlet with egg, prepared with a sweet and mildly salty broth, placed over hot rice. 200 Pesos. Generous serving size.
Katsu Meatball Spaghetti. Traditional Spaghetti topped with deep fried beef balls. 175 Pesos per serve.
Chicken Teriyaki Pasta. Mildly sweet. Very flavourful. A Katsu Country Original. 150 Pesos per serve.
Katsu Country Signature Matcha Cheesecake. Honestly good, non-gelatinous, slightly brittle texture, which I like. It’s probably the best Matcha cheesecake in Davao, TBH. 200 Pesos for this set. Apart from these featured entries, the cafe also serves traditional Porkloin, beef,chicken and fish katsu sets, tofu katsu set for the vegetarians, burgers, and savory Shoyu Ramen bowls.
Katsu Country Cafe is located at the Ground Floor of Junction Bldg, Emilio Jacinto Extension, Davao City. Get in touch with them through Facebook, or contact 0917 314 6361 for reservations.
