A couple of months ago, I saw a post showing Manila Maki‘s anniversary promo of unlimited maki. I booked it for the last Saturday of their promo and got an early seating of 6:00pm, since they 8:00pm seating was already fully booked. The facade of the restaurant is not so big, so you might pass it by like we did especially at night.
Although the place is small, the interiors are pretty nice. I especially loved the wallpaper made from old Japanese newspapers accented by wooden planks.
The Maki All You Can was priced at P350, you can choose from 4 of their Pinoy maki, 9 savory dishes and rice/fried rice. All dishes are made upon order
Since Irene and I have never tried Manila Maki, we decided to start with one order each of their Pinoy makis.
Osaka Maki is made up of kani, cucumber with tanuki (tempura) and chili flakes. Irene and I both preferred the Aligue maki over this one.
Pinoydon Maki, adobo with mango and cream cheese. A good sweet and salty mix.
The last maki we tried was the Oahu maki, made with spam, lettuce and terriyaki sauce. Too bad I forgot to take a photo of this one despite having 2 orders.
Longgiyoza, Cabanatuan longganisa and leeks filled gyoza. The wrapper was a bit too thick but I actually liked the stronger flavors of the filling.
Calamares with Wasabi Mayo. I never can resist ordering calamares everywhere but sadly this one was nothing special.
It was quite a different experience, having Filipino flavors executed in Japanese techniques. They currently have another maki all you can promo going on but is only applicable for Saturdays, priced at P488 but with more choices.
