Plus, they have Happy Hour too!
It’s hard to find cheap eats around BGC, but we’ll let you in on a (foodie) secret: Kushikatsu Daruma’s bang-for-the-buck donburi set meals will be your ultimate go-to dishes for lunch from now on.
Kushikatsu Daruma’s version of a complete meal includes miso soup, donburi, iced tea, and a scoop of ice cream—and we’re really digging it at the price of only P265! We promise these quick yet filling chows from this Japanese resto won’t make a dent on your wallet, but will definitely make your tummy happy.
Your choices for the main dish are Gyudon, Chicken Teriyaki, Yakiniku, Katsudon, and Oyakudon. Whatever kind of meat you’re in the mood for—be it beef, chicken, or pork—Kushikatsu Daruma has got you covered.
Our favorites are the savory and sweet Gyudon and Yakiniku beef strips. If you’ve got a big appetite, order some extra Yakiniku on the side for only P190!
The set’s miso soup is also one of the best out there. It has bits of mushroom to add in texture and a fuller flavor to the traditional Japanese staple. You can really taste the flavor of the dashi, and it’s also loaded with tofu and wakame.
Now, donburi sets are a clear winner, but things get more interesting at the restaurant when the clock strikes four. Kushikatsu Daruma’s designated Happy Hour is from 4 PM to 9 PM on weekdays. The local beers are only P50, while everything on their Chu Hais menu is on a buy one take one promo. Nothing else can make us say “Kampai!” louder on a Friday night.
If you’re eating out with a bunch of friends or officemates, make a table reservation on the Booky app at least 30 minutes before dining in. Using the app would save you up to P150 and entitles you to a free dessert. Now that’s what we call a sweet ending!
