After more than a year working in Bonifacio Global City, my teammates and I were really starting to get tired of our usual lunch destinations. For those not familiar with the area, the food choices have definitely increased since I first moved here but still nowhere still as many as Makati.
So when we saw this quaint little place finally open, albeit only on a soft opening, we quickly decided to give it a go.
Here’s what we ordered:
I ordered Chasyudon which, if I remember correctly, is grilled pork rice topping. I felt that this dish was really full of taste. The sauce dripping on the rice made it even more yummy for me. However, although I forgot the exact value, I remember feeling that it was not quite right for the price. Those two pieces of grilled pork were really tiny and we all thought that the rice on their meals were definitely less than a cup.
I also ordered extra rice and again felt that it was too pricey since it was not even your usual Japanese rice quality.
Their specialty were their skewers so some of my teammates decided to try them.
Jagabei – Potato wrapped in Bacon
AA also found this really good. Then again, anything with bacon is always good. But again, at Php 140, it just did not seem that it was not worth it.
Uzura – Quail Eggs
Php 95 for six ordinary quail eggs– definitely overpriced. Nuff’ said.
Thinking about it some more, Yakitori probably has about the same mark-up as other restaurants in the area. I guess what made it feel so unworth it is that their dishes all looked plain (except for the green stuff on my Chasyudon), giving it a cheap look.
Anyway, I want to be fair to them so here are other posts/blogs about Yakitori:
