  • John and Yoko gets better and bolder with these exciting dishes
  • John and Yoko is cooking up something different, and it’s not just something new—it’s something phenomenal.

    After 8 years in the culinary industry, John and Yoko has made a revamp this 2016 and did something to take Japanese cuisine in a more sophisticated level. Although it has gained a steady following for their former menu, the restaurant decided to elevate the cuisine from “urban and trendy” to “more sophisticated gastronomy with global appeal.” Now, the new look of John and Yoko appeals to a wider crowd, armed with an interesting menu with the same flavorful experience.

    This revamp is made possible by chefs from their team of highly-skilled culinary professionals named Chef Chris Oronce, Chef Benjamin Gonzales, and Chef Sonny Mariano, collaborating to produce these exciting dishes by creating interesting combination of flavors people will surely love about cosmopolitan cuisine.

    According to Chef Gonzales, the dishes showcase both Asian and Western culinary traditions which offer new flavor profiles. From John and Yoko’s appetizers to dessert offerings, the food’s really something worth the try.

    Aside from modifying their menu, the restaurant has also refurbished its interiors by their bright and modern color palette that makes it look more cosmopolitan, therefore inviting more customers to come and see what’s new in their favorite Japanese restaurant in Manila. With this whole makeover, John and Yoko is set to let people know of what they proudly offer. Here’s a look of their new menu:
