Some good friends and I decided to take lunch out last Friday and ended up somewhere in Antipolo instead of our earlier plan to eat at SM Marikina. Our objective for our expedition to Antipolo was a highly recommended one by our friend Sean who had mentioned this small Japanese restaurant near the junction of Soliven Ave. with Sumulong Highway. He had actually invited our office barkada there but it seemed difficult to get everyone to lunch or dine in the place considering it was out of the way for most. Only Sean and I lived in the area though we could probably pull in a couple more other friends living in the area for a lunch get-together. Who can resist authentic-tasting Japanese food that's been a comfort food for a lot of us who had stints in Japan for our graduate or post-graduate studies?
|The menu on the wall speaks of the restaurant's specialties and the prices are reasonable (148 Pesos is about 300 Yen)|
|Since they have a lot to offer including ramen, donburi, and soba, I'm sure we'll be coming back for more if only to sample the other items|

|If Japanese food were a vice, we were definitely guilty for indulging (once in a while)|

The staff are attentive and the place is clean and well-lit. The only issue would probably be the parking as they only have space for 5 to 6 vehicles. Car-pooling/sharing or public transport is recommended. What can I say about the food? It's perfect for a rainy day!
Thanks for the recommendation Sean! We're sure to make a return soon!
