I always order chicken teriyaki when I go to Japanese restos (perhaps because it fills my stomach just right, not as light as seafood or as heavy as beef) and Akitaya’s so far is the tastiest for me. Chicken is tender and was marinaded well.

Their Ebi tempura is also really good. I liked the seasoned breading and the juicy meat.

You’ll sure order more of these buttered mushrooms as side dish !
Now here’s something relevant from my fellow wordpress blogger:
Take a good serving of mixed vegies for a balanced meal – that’s some tossed cabbage, carrots and monggo sprouts.

Now my post ends with kani salad (the appetizer hehe). “Kani” is the Japanese term for crab, that is used in sushi. It’s easy to prepare at home to. Kani salad recipe: http://feastasia.casaveneracion.com/kani-salad/
Akitaya Japanese Restaurant is based at Sheraton Hotel in Ningbo China but you can get a good taste of its dishes in Metro Manila.
Visit their branch at Unit 148, G/F Mile Long Building Amorsolo Street Legaspi Village, Makati. Better make a reservation since the place is small but has good ambiance and service.(02)813-7475
