7 Japanese Restaurants to Get Your Yakiniku Fix
Grilled eats are surely something foodies can’t resist—one proof is Filipinos’ (even foreigners) sustained high fascination towards the ever-popular Korean BBQ. But this food trend, in case you still don’t know, has a Japanese counterpart that is also worth raving about—the yakiniku.
Fairly similar to K’s concept wherein customers get to grill mouthful slices on their own tables, yakiniku or Japanese barbecue can be just as great as samgyupsal, or even tastier! Plus, it allows you to indulge in other Japanese favorites aside from the meat.
Fire up the grill and get your tongs ready, here are 7 Japanese restaurants to get that Japanese BBQ fix!
Opened in June 2018, Miyazaki Gyu in BGC offers high-quality wagyu raised directly from Miyazaki, Japan. And one can certainly vouch for that by trying any dish from their well-rounded menu, one of which is their Yakiniku Mix Platter (Php 5,000).
Indulge in their line of premium meat cuts, including five 60g servings of Top Round, Knuckle, Clod, Chuck Roll, and Short Ribs.
