One of our favorite Japanese restaurants that we go to as a family is Kaiseki, located at the Fort Strip. I don’t know why it was only now that we got to feature them.

Kaiseki prepared appetizers
Kaiseki offers a wide range of delicious Japanese Dishes. Upon seating at your table, you are given a little dish with chopped veggies and small fried fish or ‘dilis’ as how we call it Filipinos.

Our family orders various appetizers, since we are a huge group when we get together. Top of the list would be a Makimono (sushi wrapped in seaweed), the California Maki. The California maki is made out of Avocado or mango, kani (crab used as a sushi ingredient), lettuce, ebiko and mayo (Php 202).

We also order the Crazy Maki, another Makimono, which is made out of Ebiko and Kani (Php 250).

For our salad, we love the Kani Sarada (Php 165). It is made of Crab meat, Mango, ebiko Lettuce and cucumber. I love japanese salad because their mayo has a distinct delicious flavor.

I think this is one of the restaurants that serves one of the best Sukiyaki in Manila. Sukiyaki (Php 500) is a Nabemono dish (casserole cooking) with beef, tofu, noodles, vegetables which is simmered in a special sauce. I love their Sukiyaki because they do not scrimp on the ingredients. Big chunks of beef and tofu slices are seen. This dish is very filling and can actually be eaten by 2-3 people.

We, of course, ordered the Tori Teriyaki or the Chicken Teriyaki (Php 224). It was boneless chicken breasts glazed in a sweet sauce.

We also ordered the Beef Teppan Yaki (Php 565 for Tenderloin Steak, local). These are cubes of beef cooked in a hot plate and served with a dipping sauce. Even without the sauce, this dish has strong flavors. The beef used is very juicy.

Don’t forget to order the oysters from this place. The Oysters (Php 170) are my moms favorite.

The Shrimp Yaki Meshi or fried rice (Php 90) though is very salty, so I suggest that you go with the plain rice. The dishes are already flavorful so you don’t need to go with lots of flavors in your rice.

And for dessert, don’t forget to order two of our favorite desserts: the coffee jelly with ice cream (Php 115) and the Buko Pandan Salad (Php 80).
