By now, all Tokyo Tokyo branches should already be serving Snow Ice. I was told that the roll out of this brand new dessert will be completed by April. While the Snow Ice was inspired by the Kakigori, Tokyo Tokyo went above and beyond the classic Japanese festival offering of shaved ice mixed with flavoured syrup.
The three Snow Ice variants (all priced at P79.00) were concocted with generous ingredients. The Choco Sensation features brownies chunks with mini marshmallows and a helping of hot fudge sauce. The Mango Peach Medley has slices of peach and mango. The Halo-Halo is heaped with ube, nata, leche flan, plus a sprinkling of crunchy cornflakes.
Puedeng dessert or merienda!
During the same event, Tokyo Tokyo also introduced the Cheese Tonkatsu Bento. I’m not a katsu kind of girl and was not swept into the country’s recent katsu craze. For some reason, no matter how much they elevate the dish, I find it meh. However, I must admit that Tokyo Tokyo’s added twist to their pork tonkatsu – the cheese – made a world of a difference to me. I enjoyed the Cheese Tonkatsu so much that I wanted it again for lunch the next day!
Buti na lang affordable! At P145.00 the Cheese Tonkatsu Bento is a craving that is easy to give in to. The price includes a side dish of fresh cabbage strips dressed in a special roasted sesame dressing and all the rice you can eat.
The yummy factor at the event went up a notch when Daniel Matsunaga and members of Kaya FC walked in, fresh from a victory against Global in the United Football League.
They shared which menu items they liked best.
