Yummy (Philippines) - - The Yummy guide to DINING OUT -

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.
