  • 6 Japanese Establishments Outside Little Tokyo That You Should Visit
  • “The best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach” is a saying that never gets old every February.  It’s the time of the year again where love (and food) makes the world go around. And since the beginning time, love has always been committed to food. Their relationship to each other can be felt whenever you taste a meal that is served and prepared with love. Through food, love can be preserved and withstand the test of time. It can be passed from one generation to another, like recipes and traditional dishes. 

    That’s why the Philippine Primer is here to serve you with a list of Japanese restaurants you can find around Little Tokyo in Makati to experience their love to serve great food.
