    Izakaya Hamachi is a casual Japanese restaurant in Salcedo Village, Makati that is renowned for its fresh Japanese food, sake, and beers imported directly from Japan.

    As its name suggests, it specializes in hamachi or yellowtail with the Buri Kama or the grilled collar, being a favorite among many for its fatty content and melt-in-the-mouth consistency.

    As the restaurant is likened to an izakaya, a casual pub in Japan, guests may expect a variety of Japanese street food like the yakitori or  grilled chicken skewers, best paired with alcoholic beverages, perfect for a night out with friends.

    Another snack you might wish to try is their takoyaki, a chewy crowd-favorite made from ingredients sourced from Osaka, Japan with the exception of octopus from the Philippine seas to keep the quality consistently fresh and flavorful.

    However, unlike traditional izakayas, Izakaya Hamachi also serves impressive sushi boats and succulent wild steaks, offering a unique twist on the classic izakaya experience.

    The Wildsteak, for example, is an ultimate must-try both for its flavor and texture. It is made of imported, high-grade chuck-eye beef, smoked over their signature coconut charcoal grill before served on a cast iron hot plate filled with a bed of white onions and herb butter.

    Complete your hearty meal with their premium Japanese rice and homemade garlic chili, and you’ll definitely be over the moon with this combo!

    If you are curious about their authentic Japanese beverages, here’s a treat for you. These are some of the Japanese rice wine varieties for you to choose from!

    • Raw Sake; ABV 15% (light, smooth, medium dry)
    • Honjozo Karatamba Sake; ABV 15% (crisp, dry taste, lingering finish)
    • Iichiko; ABV 25% (Japan’s No. 1 shochu brand with a roasted barley flavor)
