I love hole in the wall restaurants. And from my visit to Tokyo… Hole in the wall restos are usually the best. Kikufuji has apparently been around for many years, known for their fresh sushi, and sashimi, I would say they have the best authentic Japanese food in the Little Tokyo area in Makati. It’s always a good sign to see a lot of Japanese people when you enter a Japanese restaurant, and the place was full of ’em. The Sushi bar is like a little stage in the middle of the resto, and you see the chefs meticulously preparing the food. Another Japanese chef was preparing skewers off on the side (I didn’t know there was an art to cooking Japanese skewers, its not as simple as just grilling it). Kikufuji was truly a gastronomic treat especially for a Japanese food lover like me and the prices were quite reasonable too! Ranging from 200 to 500. I saw their lunch menu and I can’t wait to try it when I come back next time.
See pictures below and imagine the salmon sahimi melt in your mouth…so yummy!
Here’s a little bit of personal trivia. I actually never used to eat sushi and sashimi until I started dating GP. He sorta opened my palette to Japanese food when we had one of our first few dates at Seryna (which is also another great resto in Little Tokyo) and it turned my world upside down. now I just love Japanese food =)
Pork and Chicken Skewers
Right beside Kukufuji you’ll see this grocery store! Go inside! They have a lot of interesting things that you can buy.
They also had canned goods!
I bought this. Haven’t tried it…But i might just right after posting this! Haha
Kikufuji is located along Pasong Tamo beside Makati Cinema Square in the Little Tokyo area.
