That only means there’s more restaurants to try this month, add them to your Must Try list on Booky so you don’t miss anything that peaked your interest.

Ganso-Shabuway is an international franchise from California that offers Japanese style hot pot. They serve all-natural grass fed beef, fresh produce and other hot pot toppings. It’s for people who are looking for a healthier dining option. It’s not for sushi lovers. We recommend the Set B (for 2) with Spicy Miso broth, Wagyu beef set, and their Seafood Deluxe Set. We’ve been reading great reviews about their dipping sauces, so make sure to try those as well. Our insider tip is every order of single or sharing shabu-shabu set comes with unlimited rice, soup refills and dipping sauces.

Opened in 2011, Nuvo is a classic bar and restaurant in the bustling Greenbelt complex specializing in French and Mediterranean dishes. Kitchen is run by renowned local chef Rod Sapio and French-Morroccan guest chef-turned-executive chef Xavier Btesh. It’s for people looking for a night of good music and drinks. It’s not for the younger crowds looking for loud music and a dance floor. We recommend the Soupe Marius, Modern Carbonara, Chef Xavier’s Seabass Special, and Peppered Steak. Pair it with their wide selection of imported champagnes and wines. Our insider tip is to sample their wine before ordering a bottle, they’ll be glad to give you free taste.

Dean & DeLuca is New York’s leading retail establishment for gourmet & artisan food, as well as wine and gifts from around the world. It is a bakery, a cafe and a go-to place for epicurean treats whether for cooking, eating or entertaining. It’s for ladies’ brunch. It’s not for loud party groups. We recommend the Roasted US Angus Beef Brisket Sandwich, Hot Italian Lasagna, as well as their bread and pizza selections. Order Iced Cafe Dulce de Leche and Matcha Green Tea Latte for drinks.

Le Petit Souffle is a French and Japanese-inspired cafe from the Tasteless Group (of Hole in the Wall, Scout’s Honor, Bad Bird, Wrong Ramen, etc). They serve modern dishes crafted with flavors and precision of Japanese and French cuisines. It’s for anyone with adventurous tastebuds. It’s not for people who are on short meal breaks. We recommend you try their French Toast, Foie Mac n Cheese, Squid Ink Rice, then cap off with their soufflés and matcha dessert selections. Here’s an insider tip: Always watch out for Chef Miko’s new dishes and desserts. Learn how to make their Matcha Red Bean Soufflé Pancake in 5 easy steps here.

Nikkei

Nikkei is the first Peruvian-Japanese sushi bar in Manila headed by Argentinan Chef Christian Cejas. “Nikkei” is a term that describes Peruvian cuisine culturally inspired by the Japanese; it is the latest food trend in Europe. It’s for adventurous eaters who love to try new cuisines. It’s not for people looking for party-sized servings. We recommend the Salmon Belly Nigiri, Miso Kurobuta, Seared Tuna, Kobi Nigiri Sushi and Parmesan Scallops. Our insider tip is get their good-for-sharing Tres Leches for free when you book a table with Booky!

Your Local

Photo from @ninolator

Your Local is a neighbourhood bistro serving modern Southeast Asian dishes. Opened by Chef Denny Antonino and Nicco Santos, the restaurant has a hipster meets industrial vibe and serves all day brunch together with their standard menu. It’s for yuppies at lunch time and everyone at dinner. It’s not for people who are looking for quick Asian takeouts. We recommend the Lamb Rendang and Torched Salmon Donburi and their value-for-money 24 Hour Sous Vide Corn Fed USDA Choice Beef Short Rib. Our insider tip is unfortunately for us, the price of our well-loved salmon donburi has gone up.

Izakaya Kikufuji

Little Tokyo is a hub of authentic Japanese specialties, each one transporting us to random parts of Japan. Izakaya Kikufuji serves fresh sashimi and affordable and tummy-filling bento sets. It’s for people who want to experience authentic Japanese style dining. It’s not for those looking for a quick ramen bowl. Aside from their sashimi selections, we recommend their Wagyu sticks and spicy salmon sushi. Our off-menu tip is order Japanese fried rice, which they actually order from their next door neighbor restaurant. P.S. Claim one coupon for every P500 spent, for a free glass of beer on your next visit. Check out all 14 restaurants inside Little Tokyo here.
