Yakiniku Kenshin Restaurant Is the Newest Japanese Grilled-Meat Stop in Makati
Korean barbecue restaurants have emerged as clear favorites among foodies, appearing as one of the food trends in the local dining scene last year. It is popular especially among truehearted fans of the famous grilled pork belly samgyeopsal. But little did we know that the Japanese take on this cooking style is also worth raving about.
When we speak of Japanese cuisine, ramen and sushi immediately come to mind, but Yakiniku Kenshin in Makati offers a Japanese dining experience that goes beyond ramen and sushi.
Yakiniku Kenshin is the latest grilled-meat stop in Makati
Yakiniku literally translates to grilled meat and usually refers to the Japanese grilled cuisine. The concept of a yakiniku restaurant is fairly similar to Korean barbecue as customers get to grill meat cut into mouthful slices on their own tables.
Despite only opening this month, Yakiniku Kenshin is not short of meat choices to offer. One is the Garlic Butter Beef (Php 259) which is a platter of thinly sliced beef ribs. Maximize your experience by dipping the grilled beef in the garlic butter sauce it comes with. You may also pair it with an unlimited order of rice for only Php 129.

Another must-try is their Tsubo Zuke Calbi (Php 369). As the beef rib is marinated in a pot, the meat is not only tasty but is also tender. This is also great with rice.
Fancy some raw meats? The Beef Yukke (Php 289) is the perfect fix for you. This one is not included in the menu, so better ask for it if you want to savor its unmistakable sweetness.
