Matsuzakagyu Yakiniku M, Hozenji Yokocho
1-1-19 Namba, Chuo-ku, Osaka,
Osaka Prefecture 542-0076, Japan
+81 6-6211-2917

This was recommended by a friend and introduced the manager to me thru facebook. Apparently, this is where all the Pinoy’s go since the chef here is the one helping one of the best Japanese restaurants here in Manila, Tsukiji. This was probably the best meal also in the whole trip since it was super value for money. High grade Matsusaka beef in the picture was just around 7,500 pesos and it was enough fat for me and my 2 other friends to eat. In manila, for you to get that kind of beef, you have to pay 5,000 pesos for 100 grams. Definitely worth going to. Make sure to make a reservation as the place is quite small. The sake in the picture also was really good as I am not really a fan of sake, but this one I had. I would actually go back to Osaka just to eat.

5-8-20 Ginza, Chuo,
Tokyo Prefecture 104-0061, Japan
+81 3-3572-3806
Metro: Ginza exit 4D

If you like shabu shabu, this is the place to go to. Its pretty simple, you can choose from shabu-shabu or sukiyaki. We went for lunch so the lunch sets were cheaper than the dinner menu. Its 1850 yen for the regular beef set (100g) and 3,300 for the prime beef set (100g). My mom and I got 1 regular beef set each and ordered the Sukiyaki set also so that we can try. The sukiyaki set was only 1300 yen so we just got it as an extra order.

You can’t share one order because its just right for 1 person. Its a pretty simple meal, I just like the peanut sauce and the ponzu sauce.

When you exit the metro, its already in that building beside the Nissan building in Chuo Dori, go inside the department store and ask where the restaurant is. She will tell you that there are 2 in the building, one on the second floor and one on the basement. The one on the basement is just all counters so if you want to sit in a table make sure you go to the 2nd floor one.

Central, Hong Kong

No reservations.

Hours: 10am – 6am

If you’re hungry after a night out, the most popular stop would either be a dimsum place that’s open till 6am or Ebeneezers. Its right smack in the middle of Lang Kwai Fong that its so easy to go to after coming from the bars. 

Their known for their kebabs and their rice bowls (all are good)! They also have fast and speedy service that you wait maybe around 5 mins only. 

Lamb or beef kebab is a winner!

To celebrate our last family dinner with my sister on the night before I left for Manila, we chose to eat in Shabu Tatsu. This place has been a favorite of mine since I started going to New York more than 10 years ago. Every time I visit, I always have to make a stop here. If you are a meat lover, you will definitely love this place! You have a choice of either yakiniku or shabu shabu or both if you’re a lot. We opted to get shabu shabu for the table and yakiniku to be cooked in the kitchen since there was only 1 burner in our table.

What we ordered: Teriyaki Tofu, Beef Bibimbap, Rib-Eye Shabu Shabu for 2, Rib-Eye Beef Yakiniku and Short Rib Yakiniku

I love everything we ordered here because the beef is always juicy and tender, but the reason why I keep coming back is their Bibimbap! All the years I’ve eaten in different Korean restaurants I can’t find anything like it. It is served in hot stone where the server mixes it before putting it on our own cups. What I ask them to do is to wait a bit before mixing it so that the rice would get a bit burnt from the hot stone. Then I add the yakiniku sauce to make it tastier.

They also serve Sapporo draft beer to pair with the meal. It surely made up for the wet rainy weather that day!

Bohemian Restaurant and Bar
57 Great Jones St
(between Bowery & Lafayette St)
New York, NY 10012
Neighborhoods: East Village, NoHo  
(212) 260-2333

Reservations must be made.

Price Range: 50-70 USD

Nearest Transit: 
Bleecker St (4, 6, 6X) 
Broadway - Lafayette St (B, D, F, M) 
2 Av (F) 

On my recent trip to New York, a friend of mine brought me to this unusually located restaurant called Bohemian in the East Village. You can easily miss it because the entrance is actually located behind a meat shop. When you finally reach the entrance of the restaurant, you need to ring a doorbell to enter which makes it the even more interesting. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to take a picture of the entrance but I did take pictures of the food that I had ordered. 

Since i love Uni sashimi, i was so thrilled to actually have found uni dishes in this restaurant. I really enjoyed everything we ordered but my favorite was the uni croquette and the uni potato gratin. I didn’t think it was actually possible to eat uni in other ways than sushi and sashimi. The special dishes here were so unique and delicious! 

As it was also a bar, the mojito was the perfect cocktail to pair with the food. Watching them making it was a treat too!
