With con­sis­tently su­perb fare by the ex­ec­u­tive Ja­panese chef Wataru Hikawa, who has gained a loyal fol­low­ing through the years, Inagiku re­mains on the Top 20 this year. No sur­prise here as Inagiku’s ex­per­tise traces its roots to over 150 years back, start­ing out as a hum­ble lit­tle tem­pura nook in Asakusa, Ja­pan, which has now grown glob­ally, in­clud­ing in the Philip­pines.

Metic­u­lous at­ten­tion to de­tail is ex­er­cised in each dish pre­sented at the ta­ble. Hikawa’s mas­tery of the cui­sine, ob­vi­ously em­anates in the aburi sushi—lightly torched in­stead of raw, de­liv­er­ing a panoply of rich, nat­u­ral flavours and the tem­pura mo­ri­awase that is in­fused with a spe­cially blended oil.
