Even though I still need to master the basics of chopstick etiquette (been trying for years), I will never deprive myself with one of my favorite cuisine.
Dining out with my close high school friends has become a rare occurrence nowadays. So when Kuri recently had a Manila flight and suggested that we dine in this Japanese restaurant in Makati that she saw from Gretchen Barretto’s Instagram feed, Nes and I went along.
A mural of Tsukiji Market right on the entrance
Named after Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo (the biggest wholesale fish and seafood market in the world), Tsukiji Restaurant serves premium Japanese cuisine in the Metro since 1989. One of their chefs was actually from the renowned fish market. Also, most of their seafood is flown in from Tsukiji, ensuring diners of the freshest possible sushi and sashimi.
The restaurant is homey and expansive with minimalist design. There are regular tables, a sushi bar, and a lovely tatami room, where we settled.
We ordered just enough.
California maki (gone in 60 seconds)
Calamansi juice and watermelon shake
As expected, food tastes good (just as our catching up chismisan). Syempre recommended ni Gretchen.
Ahhh too many sake, so little time. But we didn’t order any.
Maybe next time. When we could find another Japanese restaurant named Tsugi or Jukil.
