Teriyaki Boy: Manila-Bred Japanese Restaurant in Abreeza

We should all thank Abreeza Mall for introducing new restaurants to our already happy digestive systems. Davao City has already taken pride in housing a wide variety of cuisines, most notably Chinese, Italian and Persian. It is a welcome change, therefore, to see Japanese restaurants starting to sprout across the entire metropolis.

This time, it’s Teriyaki Boy, a famous Japanese restaurant born and raised in Metro Manila. It sports a casual dining atmosphere where everything and everyone move fast, without sacrificing food quality. The concept is so unique and refreshing, that we decided (albeit with some apprehension) to eat Japanese food for dinner.

Laid out on our tables were Katsudon and Teriyaki Boy Chicken Ju. And my my, not only were they a sight to behold, but also a delight to the taste buds.

Katsudon (deep-fried breaded pork cutlets with sweet soy sauce and scrambled egg on steamed rice) was a knockout. The meat was so juicy, and the combination of crispy breading and cottony soft meat was very pleasant to the tongue.

My absolute favorite, however, would have to be their signature dish. Teriyaki Boy Chicken Ju (grilled chicken in sweet teriyaki sauce on steamed rice) was simply sensational. The dish came in a Ju box (just like a mini Bento box), which gave an authentic Japanese impression to our table. The chicken was insanely delicious: the sweetness of teriyaki sauce complemented the smoky goodness of the grilled chicken.
