First Japanese restaurant finding this year: Hanagushi

Hanagushi opened only last year at The Beacon Makati. I’ve seen this restaurant since its opening, but only decided to go when I saw they offer a “cook your own takoyaki.”

They have an extensive menu and you can already tell so from their website. We took a long time choosing. I want to order so many, but my stomach has its limits and so does my wallet. 😆


Upon ordering, they will give a warm hand towel and a side dish.

The side dish: eggplant with bits of pork.

Preparing the takoyaki

(Sorry if the varying photo sizes bothers you. It bothers me too. I was excited and forgot to set my phone camera to one resolution.)

In Hanagushi, you can choose from pork, octopus, and cheese (iirc) for the takoyaki.

YUM!


I would love to have takoyaki now (in this chilly rainy weather) with warm sake. ♥


Sashimi Teishoku and our other orders


I had the Sashimi Teishoku (Php350). A set includes miso soup, salad, fruits, and a bowl of rice. Rice are unlimited when you order a set.

The sashimi doesn’t seem much, but they’re hiding under those veggies. 😛 Each slice was also thick to my surprise. 🙂

I wish I can remember what this was 😐


Hanagushi is the only Japanese restaurant I’ve seen so far that offers horse meat, whale meat, wagyu, chicken, and liver sashimi. I want to try them even though all of them scares my stomach already. 😆


Service


I’ve seen some reviews that mention issues with the service. I found the service good; they’re not slow. The waitresses were friendly and pleasant and the one who taught us how to cook the takoyaki was all smiles even.


The food was good. I love their tuna. The quality has been consistent in my two visits. I want to go back again to confirm they do get good tuna supply. 😛 Reasons…


Hanagushi would definitely be one of my recommendations for having a lot of food choices for both raw and grilled food lovers. 🙂
