“It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!”
As true as the famous Christmas carol may be, it neglects to inform us that it’s also the most hectic time of the year. Everybody’s rushing everywhere – mostly to malls to check off names off their lists. When we waste so much time stuck in horrid traffic, we also panic about not having enough of it for actual Christmas shopping. Let me share something my mother always tells me: “No matter how busy, you should NEVER skip a meal.”
Let me set the scene for you: you’ve conquered the metaphorical mountain that is EDSA and you’ve figuratively moved mountains to get your little sister the best gift. After all that hard work, you should be ready to EAT a mountain. Head on over to the nearest Tokyo Tokyo because they’ll have the perfect meal waiting for you. Celebrate your completely checked off list with the Mt. Katsu Sumo Meal.
The Mt. Katsu Sumo Meal comes with the newest addition to their menu, the Mt. Katsu, 4 pieces of prawn tempura, two bowls of unlimited steamed rice and two glasses of red iced tea for only P375.
What exactly is the Mt. Katsu? It’s a heap of their best-selling (and my personal fave) Big Chicken Katsu topped with teriyaki sauce, onion rings, and Japanese mayo. Doesn’t it look like a Christmas tree? Kinda? Haha!
The Mt. Katsu Sumo Meal is meant to be a meal for two but the servings are so generous that some people split it three-ways at times.
If you’re a light-eater and the whole meal is a bit too much for you, you can enjoy the Mt. Katsu on its own with a side of rice for only P189. You can also choose the bento meal option with a drink and sides for only P244.
This Christmas season, I’ll be skiing down a mountain in Japan for the first time in my life. I can’t tell you how excited I am to experience that!! In the meantime, I’ll be conquering the Mt. Katsu Sumo Meal right here at home. If you decide to do the same thing, don’t forget to share it with a loved one (or two!). It’s the most wonderful time of the year after all. :)
