Izakaya Sensu & Chotto Matte in Taguig: An Izakaya Restaurant With A Twist
The exterior of the restaurant boasts a very sleek and clean look that catches the eye of those who pass by them
Izakaya Sensu and Chotto Matte, the newest innovative concept of Raintree Restaurants in partnership with Piglet, Tokyo, is finally here! Opened last July 8 at Netpark, BGC, the new izakaya restaurant is made especially for Japanese gastropub aficionados in the Philippines.
Chotto Matte and Izakaya Sensu are two different restaurants under one excellent crown of a Japanese inspired interior. Chotto Matte is a Japanese phrase which means “Please wait a second.” It is a Highball and Liquor Bar which exemplifies the high energy back alleys of Golden Gai District of Tokyo. They got an impressive selection of liquors, from the best highball kakubin, artisanal sake, beer, wine to their cool signature cocktails.

Izakaya Sensu, on the other hand, is a compound word consisting of “ i” (to stay) and “sakaya” (sake shop). It is known as a type of casual drinking establishment in Japan. Izakaya Sensu is just a few jostles away from the Chotto Matte bar area. It is where you can experience non- traditional Izakaya with a new sense and style, serving modern twists on the Izakaya classic cuisine and culture that is always authentically Japanese. The two restaurants are separated with intricate wooden dividing walls and fabric drapes printed with Japanese insignias.
