Teriyaki Beef Bento


Karate Kid (Robinsons Place)

-Ermita, Manila-


TERRP (Try Every Restaurant in Robinsons Place), Phase 4.

In Manila since January, here through October under the current contract, living above Robinsons Place, I've been eating my way through the mall.  As far as I know, nobody has ever done anything like this, my unique contribution to the city's food/blog scene.  I've tried all the restaurants on the 1st floor (currently 36, down from the initial 40), the 2nd floor (currently 8, down from the initial 14), and the 3rd floor (currently 30).  And finally, to finish out this godforsaken project, I'm now on the 4th floor (currently 11).  After tonight, 9 more to go--the home stretch--I can taste the end.

This is the 76th in the series, the 2nd on the 4th floor.  Padre Faure Wing.

All restaurants on the 1st floor:

- 39(1.36) Apr 2 / Cabalen (Filipino) (see 5.087 Buffet Scraps) / 1.5 / $$

All restaurants on the 2nd floor:

- 74(2.08) Aug 19 / Jack's Loft (Western) (see 5.226 Calamares Caesar) (Italian) / 0.5 / $$

All restaurants on the 3rd floor:

- 73(3.30) Aug 18 / Gerry's Grill (Filipino) (see 5.225 Pinakbet) / 2.0 / $$

Previously covered restaurants on the 4th floor:

- 75(4.01) Aug 26 / Pancake House (American/Filipino) (see 5.233 Best Taco in Town x 2) (Mexican)  / 2.5 / $$


Karate Kid is a Japanese restaurant chain.  Founded in 2002.  Founded in the Philippines.  First location in Robinsons Place, currently with over 20 locations throughout the country, mostly in malls.  Offers quick-fix Japanese standards, as well as burgers and pastas in a "Japanese-American Fusion concept."  Owned by the same company that operates CafeFrance (see generally 5.057 Hefty Fish & Potato Wedges).

Point-of-sale marketing.

I thought about getting this, just so the name of this post could be "Super Chop," but I didn't feel like eating so much fried chicken by myself (also, many fried chicken meals ahead).

The food was okay.  Well, the beef and bean sprouts were pretty good.  The noodles were meh.  The gyoza was crap.  So, on average, the meal was okay.
