Antipolo City - A mountainous city located east of Manila that's popular for suman and cashew but who would have thought that inside one subdivision in Antipolo City lies a Japanese Restaurant.

Katsu House - A small, simple casual dining place that offers a variety of Japanese cuisine with vegan and keto options. Yup! You read it right, K-E-T-O and V-E-G-A-N. ;)
Last 26th of May, I got the chance to indulge in some of Katsu House dishes and I must say they not only serves some of my favorites but their price is definitely affordable too!

​Vegan Tantanmen - 199PHP
Red Peppers, Red Miso Broth, Tamago (optional), Minced Shiitake, Tofu and Red Bell Peppers. It's definitely spicy but just the way I like it! At first, I wasn't aware that this was a Vegan Tantanmen as it doesn't taste one. I'm really not a fan of vegetables, but I can say this one is my top favorite.

Shiitake Gyoza / ​​125php for 4 pieces and 250php for 12 pieces \
Japanese food wouldn't be complete without shiitake mushroom. If I'm not mistaken, this is part of the vegan menu.

Oh, nothing special. We all know that Kani Salad will always be present on any Japanese restaurant. Btw, this is the only "salad" I would always enjoy eating!
Our lunch feast didn't end there. As we were served some desserts to try:

Keto Vegan Cocoaberry - 100PHP

Keto Dark Choco - 100PHP
I won't lie as I didn't really enjoy the keto desserts that was served as I don't like dark/bitter chocolates. But I can recommend it for those who's a vegan and under keto diet. :)
When I saw the #FMU invite, I immediately said yes, as 1. The location is just a ride away from my place and 2. I was craving for some maki (HEHE). But I was surprised that they also have vegan and keto options and I didn't know what to expect from there (because hello, I don't like/I don't really eat vegetables) but nope, everything was worth trying as it wasn't bad at all. I remembered the owner telling us that their restaurant is definitely a place for those who's craving for Japanese food but a vegan or under keto diet and I couldn't agree more. The place is also pet-friendly and you can also request some meals to be cooked for your fur babies. :)
