Yoshinoya Re-Opens in SM Mall of Asia

It was a sunny day when the Grand Re-opening of Japan's famous beef bowl Yoshinoya was held last March 26, 2014. The atmosphere was positive, friendly and bright.

Yoshinoya Mall of Asia  is located at Unit 107, Ground Floor, North Wing. It's very easy to locate as it is just beside SM Hypermarket and near the Transport Terminal.

Rev. Father Reynaldo Bungay was the officiating priest in the opening prayer rites/store blessing. After the ribbon cutting, they tossed some Fortune Coins for luck and the people were excitedly scrambling for it.

Affordable and delicious foods served:

Beef Misono (Php 119, for regular size)- yummy like the Gyudon, melt in your mouth generous strips of beef with plenty of rice.

Shiitake Shumai (Php 59)- I think I've found my new favorite siomai flavor.
