Restaurant Review: Karate Kid

Published on May 22, 2010

I left the office last Thursday very late with a growling stomach. I couldn’t remember the last time I felt really tired until that day. My last meal was lunch 8 hours earlier so my tummy didn’t have the luxury to be choosy. It was already getting late so Boyet suggested we eat at the nearest restaurant. We needed something fast so we settled for Karate Kid. It wasn’t our first time at Karate Kid and though I like their ramen, I have always felt that there is nothing special with the food they offer.

The soup master ordered for a cup of miso soup. I was stunned to see bits of corn and kani in their soup which actually gave it a slight sweetness that is perfect to balance the usual salty miso soup. There were also green strips which resemble the seaweeds that my dad buys from Quiapo.

Boyet and I were initially so indecisive on what to eat. My neck started to hurt from looking at their menu board and the cashier probably saw my annoyance so she was so nice to suggest their saver meals. We got the beef teppanyaki meal with stir-fried vegetables on the side, two servings of rice and two glasses of iced tea.

I was accustomed to salty teppanyaki with beef strips that are rubbery. I was amazed that the beef was tender and the teppanyaki had a hint of sweetness. I enjoyed my every bite and I even entirely consumed the sauce until its last drop.

My palate talked and told me that Karate Kid has finally redeemed itself. Hehe!
