Japinoy food trip @ Manila Maki

Manila Maki is a Filipino-inspired Japanese restaurant that offers a variety of Japanese cuisine with a Pinoy twist. A couple of weeks ago, this place was featured in Bandila (a popular news program). Me and my friend Jhoanne (we're both food enthusiasts :)) got curious, so we decided to try it. It's located along H.V. Dela Costa in Makati, a few blocks away from our office building.

The place is kinda small but its very comfy.  I love the interior especially the wallpaper, a collection of old Japanese newspapers accented with wooden planks.

Signature Dishes

Laguna Roll - crisp salmon belly and Laguna kesong puti rolled in sushi rice with bacon bits and topped with spicy salmon.

Pinoydon Maki - adobo, mangoes and cream cheese

Longgiyoza - Japanese gyoza with cabanatuan longganisa, leeks, and chicken teriyaki inasal.

Aligue Yakisoba - traditional Japanese stir-fried noodles funked by the tasty presence of crab fat.

Seared Tuna Kinilaw - yellow fin tuna peppered with black and white sesame seeds, seared slightly and served with spicy vinegar.

Pinoydon Tofu - fried tofu smothered in a tasty Pinoy teriyaki sauce.
