Nanbantei recently opened their newest branch in Alabang Town Center. Nanbantei specializes in yakitori, grilled meat on sticks, but have added a number of Japanese dishes to the menu in recent years. It’s a beautiful two story space with lots of natural light and even has al fresco areas on both floors.
This would be a fun place to sit with a couple of friends where you can see the chefs grill each stick before serving it to you.
If you are craving for sushi and sashimi, then you might want to try to Spicy Tuna Maki (P210). Not the best thing ever since they are yakitori specialists but will quell your cravings.
If chicken is your game then both the Tori Karaage (P220) or the Tori Kawa Karaage (P100) should both make you happy. Chicken meat or chicken skin, whichever your health can take is very shareable among friends and family.
Their Japanese Mojito (P175) will really go well with the yakitori and the other nibblers.
Here are some of our favorite yakitori from Nanbantei. Their are available as ala carte orders (2 pcs/order) or part of their sets which are really great deals.
Poteto Maki (P100). Potato pieces wrapped with bacon, can’t go wrong with the combination so order a bit more so there’s no fighting when they get to the table.
Tsukune (P120). My standard order for a yakitori joint, grilled chicken meatballs slathered in sweet and savory tare sauce. Nanbantei’s is up there with the good ones.
Tebasaki (P120/2pcs.). Irene loves picking meat off bones, be it chicken or pork so she was the one who ordered this. Grilled then lightly salted, I wonder if this would go well with tare sauce instead for a messier eat.
Negima (P130). Alternating pieces of chicken and leeks. For the longest time, this is what you are served if you ordered yakitori. Still a great classic especially now that I can appreciate the delicate sweetness of the leeks.
Irene went crazy over the Leba Maki (P150). Chicken liver wrapped in bacon, I skipped this one but Irene eagerly got my stick.
Coffee Jelly (P120). Strong coffee jelly pieces topped with vanilla ice cream.
