Nihonbashi Tei, Malate

It took a lot of control and convincing to finally set foot at Nihonbashi Tei Restaurant in Malate, Manila. Since our favorite Japanese restaurant Tanabe is just around the corner, its hard to decide not to go there and eat the freshest sashimi available in the city.

But we are stronger tonight.

DB ordered Chirashi which comes in a huge bowl of 3/4 rice and 1/4 assorted sashimi.

The sashimi is so generously cut I can't swallow a piece at once.

I, on the other hand, had one of the bento boxes. I forgot what it is called but it has kimchi, sashimi and strips of marinated beef for grilling.

It also comes with a cup of rice and miso soup.

Not the freshest but the servings somehow made up for it.

Not much effort required in chewing this because it was so tender!

I can't stop raving about how good the beef was that DB had to order another plate but with the bigger and thicker cuts. I guess this is the premium beef because as soon as I started to chew, I knew I was in yakiniku haven.


I've been craving for spicy sushi lately so a plate of Toro Spicy Maki will not be left out. This is so far the spiciest sushi I have ever tried that I had to drink a glass of water after every bite.

I'm glad we have trusted our instincts and tried out something new and delicious.
