Renowned as Yatai Izakaya Osaka Manmaru in its home country, this restaurant brings an authentic taste of Japan to Filipino diners. The menu is a symphony of traditional Japanese delights, including sushi, ramen, and donburi.
Among the standout dishes is the Salmon Ikura Don, a bowl of succulent salmon slices and briny ikura crowning perfectly seasoned rice. The beni shoga (red pickled ginger) and wasabi add depth and layer to the dish.

The Manmaru Roll is a fusion masterpiece, harmonizing mildly-spiced salmon and tuna in a visually appealing and tastefully satisfying roll.
