Known for serving simple kushikatsu (deep-fried skewered meat and vegetables), Ikomai was previously a food stall in Salcedo Market for about a year and a half before it decided to build its own physical store in Salcedo Village.

Although it serves Japanese cuisine, Ikomai does not market themselves as a typical Japanese restaurant, but rather, its unique concept is to “create a space where people meet and make friends,” all while enjoying the sumptuous food.
Casual and classy ambiance
Having said that, Ikomai’s Japanese owners mentioned that they are people-friendly, which is why this has become their main idea for Ikomai—to not only be a restaurant but as a venue for good conversations.
At the back of the restaurant is a mini garden outdoor area where potted plants are on display.
When it comes to their food, part-owner Taro Hori and Nagoya-based chefs serve a number of specialty street food from Nagoya, Japan. Aside from Ikomai’s kushikatsu favorites, tebasaki or chicken wings and other rice meals are also part of their menu.

Meanwhile, Pastry Chef James, who is also a part-owner of Ikomai, has his own brand called Tochi Dessert which is available inside. The pastries served here are made in-house. Freshly baked goods such as cookies are available for a luscious, sweet treat after a satisfying meal!
