Finally, Go Morita  did it! He has opened his own cafe after 10 months of selling delicious tonkatsu sandwiches and rice balls just outside  of I.T Park.  He used to station at the same spot everyday from 11AM -3PM for a few months selling Japanese snack treats.  Eventually many Cebuanos were delighted by his perseverance and his enjoyable tiny meals-on-the-go that they would get sold out in less than an hour.

The new Go Go Cafe seats about 35 customers indoors and about 4 in the al fresco area. Go Go Cafe’s menu also expanded, now carrying new food items and refreshments like coffee, teas and non-coffee beverages.

Ordered my favorite Go Go Tokyo’s Tonkatsu Sandwich (120Php)  and paired it with iced Cafe Mocha (120Php). The Tonkatsu Sandwich tastes waaay more delicious than his previous version, with the breaded pork cutlet fried perfectly with the outer layer giving out a good crunch and a tender juicy meat on the inside  in  a more a flavorful sauce.

Enjoyed my lunch here yesterday and can’t wait to try the other dishes Go Morita has whipped up for us, the Cebuanos.

Go Go Cafe is on its second week of soft opening. Go Morita’s still ironing the running of his new business venture, training his staff to better serve his guests and perfecting everything to make sure Cebuano’s appreciate what he has kindled in the kitchen.

So what makes Yakitori Binchotan special? 

Yakitori Binchotan uses a secret sauce for the skewers, and grilled in Binchotan- a special kind of charcoal found only in Japan that brings out the taste of skewered delights. The restaurant has to ship the Japanese charcoal to Cebu, to bring authentic flavors from Hokkaido to Cebu.

We want to ‘transport’ our guests to Sapporo and bring them as close as possible to the true Yakitori experience,” said Francis Villaluz, Sr. Marketing Manager of Gerry’s Group of Restaurants.

Yakitori Binchotan‘s recipes were passed on to Chef Nori by his grandfather who used to prepare them for his family during special occasions.

Yakitori isn’t as simple as putting meat or vegetable on a stick and grilling them. “There is so much discipline required in preparing this dish. The smell, the aroma of skewered dishes, and ultimately the taste makes all the difference,” said Chef Nori.

Recommendations: 

Tiger Roll (335php) is an ultimate favorite at Yakitori Binchotan! Tiger prawns rolled in Japanese Rice and topped with salmon and drizzled with special sauce. Yum!

Teritaki Chicken Salad (275Php). Mixed greens with chicken slices, sweet corn kernels, peanuts, sesame seeds, sliced cherry tomatoes with teriyaki sauce and Japanese Mayo.

 

Tsukune with poached egg (95php), chicken meatball cooked yakitori style. Yum!

Tip: 

The Sapporo way of keeping sticks after you munched on all those skewers – put them on the stick receptacle! 🙂
