Rai Rai Ken Serves Japanese Food Sumo-Style

Rai Rai Ken at Gaisano Mall of Davao

Today marks the first time that Wifey and I ate Japanese food together, and we’re glad to have experienced it at Rai Rai Ken.

I’d like to look at Rai Rai Ken as a preview of Japanese cuisine. The restaurant swells with Japanese pop culture references, mostly hinting at the country’s icons and Sumo wrestling. It’s a well-decorated restaurant that definitely attracts potential diners.

Amidst the flood of different food choices offered to us — most notably Ramen and Sushi — we ordered rice toppings. Getting rid of our Filipino appetites is quite difficult, mind you!

Hubby tried Katsudon, or breaded pork chop with egg and onions. It was alright: not bad, but not outstanding either. After all, it’s really Ramen and Sushi that they’re famous for.

Meanwhile, Wifey chose Chicken Teriyaki Don, which is grilled chicken drizzled with teriyaki sauce. We liked this dish better than Katsudon, because the teriyaki sauce complemented the taste of barbecued meat. It’s a great way to enjoy Japanese food.

Their food prices are a bit steep compared to other restaurants in Gaisano Mall. Nevertheless, Rai Rai Ken deserves a second look for its unique infusion of the Japanese culture into the restaurant.
