SM Center Angono boasts a few homegrown food establishments like the Japanese restaurant Katsumi's Cocoro (formerly Watanabe's Cocoro that first set up shop just near the Angono Municipal Hall). My third time at the restaurant although this was my first time to experience shabu-shabu there.

We had so much fun cooking the shabu-shabu with the whole family, although the kiddie unit got a bit rowdy he he.

The Mix Pork and Chicken shabu-shabu (₱475) is good already for groups. The set also included individual small bowls of ponzu sauce. I didn't get to taste the milky broth but the broth flavored with sesame seed and kombu (kelp, a type of seaweed) was yummy.

The Chicken Katsu (₱224) was just OK but it made a good partner for the Yasai Itame (₱201) which was like chop suey.

I ordered my favorite, Roll Spicy Tuna Maki (₱212). My sister and cousin also got to like the dish although they forewent dipping it into a sauce with wasabi paste (they normally don't like anything spicy). It had a rich, creamy, somewhat nutty flavor, I loved it. As a fan of anything spicy or pungent, naturally I loved the dabs of wasabi in my maki. Instead of the chahan like one server suggested, we instead ordered just plain rice.

By the moment I entered the restaurant I was all alone there. Then I texted my folks to come over while I was browsing the menu. So needless to say, all dishes (except the maki) were served immediately even before my family arrived hehe. But by the time we were having our dinner, few other groups of customers came. Hahaha.

Ambiance is loungey (mejo sosy hihihi), and although personally I like such setting, this might deter other people from entering the restaurant. I like the partitioned seating arrangement too, with sunken leg rooms as it's typical in many Japanese restaurants.

By provincial standards, Katsumi's Cocoro's fare is a tad pricey. But since its owner has worked in Japan for many years, we're sure to experience Japanese cuisine as authentic as we can get, and it's right here at home. Reasonable pricing na rin. We do not have to go far to enjoy Japanese food with the quality that can nearly be at par with the other Japanese restaurants in Manila.

We paid less than ₱1,500 for our meal. 128522127845127858127834127857

I'll try their ramens (especially miso) next time.
