Hanako in QC: Satisfying Japanese Cravings with Budget-Friendly Meals
Born out of a thesis project, Hanako Japanese Restaurant offers affordable Japanese favorites that are very accessible to everyone in Quezon City.
Hanako boasts budget-friendly meals, guaranteed to get your cravings satisfied. You can say it’s a very modest and welcoming place where you can feast your Japanese favorites.
Among the all-time favorite dishes they serve include sashimi, katsu, gyoza, donburi and of course, sushi.
If you’re a fan of sushi, better try their Takai Aburi Roll (Php 149) with cucumber strips and onion leaks that make it a crunchy bite.
