CRAZY KATSU

JA­PANESE

Eats - - QUEZON CITY -

Crazy Katsu on Mag­in­hawa Street in UP Vil­lage, Que­zon City, is about good kat­sus—no sleight of hand or arti!ce in its menu, price or in­te­ri­ors. In­side and out­side the com­pact restau­rant are wooden ta­bles and benches. The in­te­ri­ors are straight­for­ward: the only high­light on the taupe wall is the riv­et­ing, quirky art­work of wood blocks, cubes and un­even wedges. In Crazy Katsu, the dif­fer­ent katsu vari­ants—a fried cut­let mixed with egg, onions, soy sauce, and sev­eral other condi­ments—and other bud­get­friendly Ja­panese food take cen­ter stage. The kat­sus are as ap­peal­ing as they were when Crazy Katsu part­ner and Gai­jin drum­mer Shinji Tanaka served kat­sudon to the mu­si­cians at Sound Cre­ation, the record­ing stu­dio of the other Crazy Katsu part­ner and Taken by Cars’ drum­mer Bryan Kong. Tanaka’s kat­sudon was such a hit that Tanaka and Kong set up Crazy Katsu to sat­isfy the de­mand. Crazy Katsu’s menu is short, but pop­u­lar with the din­ers. The sig­na­ture katsu dish is the Chicken Kat­sudon, served with rice and shred­ded cab­bage. Other katsu dishes are the Kat­sudon, Tonkatsu, and the Katsu Curry. The plump Gy­oza dumplings, an­other best-seller, are made fresh ev­ery day. The Beef Sukiyaki, the most re­cent ad­di­tion, is a must-or­der. Plus points are the wait staff’s friendly and ef!cient ser­vice.
