THOUGH it was a rainy evening, it did not stop the members of the media and blogging community to try some of the new offerings of Kaizen Davao.
"These new dishes represent Kaizen Davao’s mantra of continuous innovation; the kitchen team is constantly updating by creating new dishes consistent with Kaizen Davao’s Japanese inspired fusion concept,"
Kaizen Davao said in a statement.
The restaurant did not hold back when it came to the first set of food they served to us. On our table were their bento boxes. You can choose among the six different combinations -- Spicy Tori and Pork Katsu; Teriyaki Chicken and Pork Katsu; Spocy Tori and Mixed Tempura; Pork Katsu and Miced Tempura; Spicy Tori and Teriyaki Chicken; and Teriyaki Chicken and Mixed Tempura -- whenever you come here. My personal favorite was the Spicy Tori and Teriyaki Chicken.
Next we had the Tamago nigiri, which is Japanese omelette on top of sushi rice bound with a thin strip of nori. This is a favorite of mine as well. I love Tamago and I really liked this.
Then we had their version of Loco Moco, which is a specially-prepared thick beef patty in rich mushroom gravy with egg-topped rice. That gravy was flavorful.
The Al Hapone was served next. This is the restaurant version of the Cubano sandwich. The sandwich consists of thinly sliced succulent beef covered in melted cheese.
To close the meal, we were served the Futomaki, which means ‘fat rolled sushi’. It is a huge nori-covered sushi roll stuffed with avocado, cucumber, denbu, ebiko and a combination of tamago and eel.
For your next Japanese food trip, have it here at Kaizen Davao located along Pryce Road corner Torres Street (Davao Wisdom Academy).
