There are a lot of choice when it comes to their authentic Japanese food. Here are my top choices

Tako Potato – deep fried potato balls filled with tako (octopus) (Php 180*) I so love this Tako Potato This dish has no extenders of what so ever and a large tako inside is definitely worth what you are paying for.

Gomoku Ramen – noodles with seafoods with salad (Php 300*) The broth of the soup season with the right seasoning. Even the noodles are made in the restaurant, not soggy even after it was soaked in the soup for quite some time. I feel full after eating a bowl , especially with veggies that are perfectly cooked
