SUMPTUOUS SUNDAYS: Little Tokyo


Along Pasay Road, you will find Little Tokyo, a little Japanese food haven flocked daily by Filipinos and Japanese nationals alike; for decades, Little Tokyo served as the go- to place for authentic Japanese food and has satisfied and been satisfying thousands upon thousands of people and their Japanese food cravings. FYI, Little Tokyo is said to be the place in Makati where you can get authentic Japanese food!

Welcome to 'Tokyo'!

It's quite easy to miss and you won't find it easily either, especially if you don't frequent Makati; just remember this: look for this red arc along Pasay Road and when you find it, you're there already! There's also an entrance on the side of the compound, facing Plaza Fair; it's where you can park cars when you come visit at night time.


Little Tokyo is a compound of restaurants with each having their own specialty, but generally, they serve equally great Japanese food. My personal favorite is Oishinbo because their menu is more varied.

PRICE RANGE: P180.00-P200.00 for sushi and sashimi; P250-P800.00 for main course

FYI 2: Little Tokyo, in my opinion, serves the freshest sashimi!

Spicy Tuna is a huge favorite of mine: it's tuna sashimi tossed in mayo and spicy powder accompanied by crunchy batter and topped with seaweeds; perfection in a plate!


Wagyu Sticks; ah, stuff that my dreams are made of; this is not available at Oishinbo, but rather at Urameshiya, a Yakiniku place; it's a grill- type restaurant so don't expect a regular Japanese menu here, but the wagyu sticks are TDF so be sure to order.

TIP: Every wednesday, drop by Urameshiya for unlimited Wagyu Sticks at P500.00 only!

Back to Oishinbo. Beef Teppanyaki that's served sizzling hot; my problem with this one though is the meat can get pretty gummy.

Tonkotsu Ramen; I could remember how Japanese Ramen in Japan tasted like and this one is a good alternative locally. (I can't wait to have authentic Ramen next week!)

Goes without saying that I'll be back here very soon for my fill of Spicy Tuna and Wagyu Sticks!
