Taste and feel authentic Japan goodness at Watami Grill and Sushi Bar
Watami is known as a restaurant that serves the usual Japanese food like tempura, rice bowls and ramen but its 3rd branch in the Philippines just busted the typecast – Watami Grill and Sushi Bar in Uptown Mall BGC is the first branch of the franchise to offer more skewers, sushi and drinks.
With three branches located in the Philippines, Watami is quite a big name internationally. They are currently operating about 700 branches in various countries in Asia such as Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Taiwan.
Getting inside the restaurant, a familiar Japan feel in the air will welcome you with just one sniff. Its relatively small room with Japanese inspired fixtures and wall decors will virtually transport you to the land of the rising sun’s vigorous street markets; propping up the new Watami’s Izakaya concept.
