This is a non-dessert related food post! Share for luck because it appears only during the 11th moon rise when planets align. Jk. I decided to start writing about restaurants that don’t specialize only in sugary stuff since I found myself constantly searching online for dinner choices. Even if I could have just cake for dinner, (Tried and tested ‘to) appetizers and mains make my tummy just as happy.
The honor (not really) of my first non-dessert restaurant feature goes to Nanbantei of Tokyo! It’s one of my family’s favorite restaurant because of its authentic Japanese food at reasonable prices. On the same favorites list is Nihonbashitei at Pasay Road but that’s for another time.
Nanbantei specializes in Yakitori which are grilled and skewered dishes. Basically, they’re Japanese street food. I love Filipino food, but Yakitori is 100 levels above isaw especially when eaten with Gohan (Japanese Rice). Sorry Mang Larrys Isawan… They also serve other dishes and they have affordable platters for the whole family. (Check menu below) 4-5 sticks of yakitori + steaming gohan + unlimited cold/hot brew service tea is enough to make you full.
