Zaifu

It’s been such a long long long time since my last post.  I’ve been stumped by the amount of work that I’m doing at the moment hence the time for blogging goes very very limited.  I can’t believe that a couple of weeks have gone by without me visiting my blog and I’m truly sorry.  Anyway, I have another Asian foodscapade for you! 🙂

Zaifu has been in Powerplant Mall eversince I can remember.  It’s one of the good restaurants that you can find in the lower ground area of the mall.  It has been ages since we’ve been going to this mall and only once or twice did I try Zaifu (no reason behind it).

The interior looks just like your regular Japanese restaurants with upholstered chairs and Japanese style dining set where you can “Indian Sit” or just relax your foot underneath the table (yes, there’s legroom in there).  It was also quite comfy and relaxing.

I ordered the typical, Katsudon, because I was really craving for it at that time.

This Don Buri costs P185.00.  Pretty expensive for a regular tasting Katsudon.  I bet there are more Japanese Restaurants that serve better Katsudon.  Verdict: not bad!

We also got the Tuna Teriyaki (ala carte) and it costs P205.00.  It was kinda bland and somehow underseasoned so we didn’t like it that much.

And lastly, we couldn’t let it go without ordering Gyoza!

This costs P169.00 for 6 pieces which is also pretty expensive.  You can get quality Gyoza from Teriyaki Boy for only about P100.00++.  Their Gyoza tasted okay but it was a little over-steamed as the wrapper keeps falling apart.

I guess the best thing here is that they also have a mini grocery that sells Korean Ice Cream products (Binggrae!).

It was good that we tried it because we now know that we won’t be coming back anytime soon.  Don’t get me wrong, their food was good it’s just not budget friendly and for a person of practicality, you won’t be settling to pay so much for OK-ness, you would of course want to have a GREAT experience.  It’s what makes it all worthwhile. 🙂

You might want to try Zaifu out yourself!  Here’s a snapshot of their menu:

With the wide array of choices in their menu, they might have specialties in other areas like Ramen, Tempura, etc so it could also be a great idea to try them out.

  1. Ah! I have been here before and I enjoyed the tables where you appear to be kneeling (like in normal Jap dining settings?) but there’s actually a hole underneath HAHA! So the floor is technically like your chair. But anyway. Now I’m tempted to drop by again.

  2. food looks good .. good thing it’s not so expensive here
