Hidden beyond the Torii arches, following the pathway of bonsai plants is a cluster of Japanese restaurants. So surreal that the menu is written in kanji, clientele with slanted eyes, and the sound of Nihongo in the background.Was I in a different land?
How do you know if a restaurant is serving authentic cuisine? When the people of that same ethnicity frequent the place. I was craving for sushi this Sunday morning but didn’t need to take a plane to be transported to Japan. At the heart of Makati, along Chino Roces Avenue (Pasong Tamo) and right beside Makati Cinema Square is Little Tokyo. Home to some of the best Japanese food in town! My bento set was only P500 ($12 USD or 10 Euros)!
