But since our trip will happen in one to two years pa, all I can do now is eat all the Japanese food in Manila! There's a lot of Japanese restaurants in the metro, not all are a hit though. Little Tokyo is a place to go when you want authentic Japanese food. Ramen restaurants are every where and most often than not, we would always eat in one because it's the kids' favorite. In this Japanese edition of A&D Eats, I've tried two new restaurants
Last Easter Sunday, we took the kids Easter Egg Hunting at Podium, watched Batman vs Superman (which I found dark and dragging, di bagay kay Ben Affleck maging Batman and also ang tagal kasi lumabas ni Wonder Woman!) then had dinner at Marufuku Japanese Restaurant. I always curious about Marufuku because we always pass by the sign at San Miguel Ave whenever we would go to Podium and Megamall, then I saw Tina posted yummy photos when they dined there and finally we were able to try the food for ourselves!
Marufuku Japanese Restaurant is located at Crescent Building 29 San Miguel Ave, 1605 Pasig.
We just walked in and they accommodated us naman but reservation is recommended.
We were open to try anything they recommend but there were a few things I wanted to try too! We ordered a lot and BOS still wanted to try more dishes (yes, he was pretty pleased with Marufuku!) but were so full. Be prepared for some food porn!
They served a complimentary Pickled Cucumber with Carrots, Beansprouts and Sesame Seeds.
Marufuku Roll, Php645. It's a futomaki with wrapped with prawn tempura and topped with mango and unagi. This one was recommended by the server. I love this roll!
Aspara Bacon Yaki, Php85/stick
Kaki Motoyaki, Php290. Perfectly grilled Hiroshima oysters topped with creamy miso. BOS and I both loved this that we had two orders! This makes a perfect pulutan (mahal ng pulutan! Haha!) but I imagine this goes well with beer or sake!
Norwegian Salmon Sashimi, Php480. Just look at how fresh those are! It's so good, it's a must-order!
Gyukushiyaki, Php185/stick. Diced Wagyu Beef Skewer, ang sarap i-ulam sa kanin! Hihi! One stick is bitin!
Tonkotsu Ramen, Php450. I ordered ramen for the kids. It was good enough for the kids but if you are going to have ramen, better have it at your favorite ramen place.
Kaisen Kamameshi, Php490. Rice casserole with salmon, shrimps, quail egg, oyster, scallop and ikura. I was a bit disappointed with this, It lacks flavor. I was imagining one of my childhood memories of kamameshi rice at Kamameshi House but this not so good.
And to end our meal, we had the Mango Kakigori, Php220, shaved ice with mangoes, milk, mango syrup and mango ice cream! I love it! It reminds me so much of Ice Monsters! Yum!
Even with a couple of disappointing dishes, it was still a good meal! BOS was happy so I was happy too! Service was good too! We'll come back again soon and try more of their Robatayaki and Teppanyaki! My photos made my BIL craved that they went the next day! Haha! Their prices are a bit on the higher range but you get quality food. Oh and don't forget to make a reservation!
