What’s the next best thing to taking a trip to Japan? Eating good Japanese food that’s just as easy to find in Manila. Itadakimasu!
Gyu Kushi from Izakaya Kikufuji
Grilled. Wagyu. Cubes. “The perfectly cooked morsels melt in your mouth and call for a big bowl of chahan.” —P.C.A.
Hashed Beef Omelet from Coco Ichibanya
“This is my favorite! The tomato-based sauce, thin beef slices, and runny omelet make for a perfect combination that leaves me wanting more and more.” —Jason Yu, associate publisher
Hiroshima Maki from Sushi Ninja
“It’s a sushi roll with a spicy salmon and ebi tempura center, rolled in tempura flakes for a crunchy exterior and served with spicy mayo. It’s got all of my Japanese restaurant faves in one very satisfying bite.” —Riell Santos, senior multimedia producer
Kurobuta Pork Set from Yabu
Crispy, tender, golden pork with unlimited sides— we can’t say no to this guilty pleasure!
Tuna Tataki from Ooma
“Folds of seared tuna are draped with paper-thin slices of pickled radish and slivers of pickled mushrooms, all topped with a scattering of crisp shallots and just a touch of sauce. It’s the sort of thing I dream about at night.” —C.L.C.
