During my previous visit to Kitsho Japanese Restaurant and Sushi Bar, I saw a poster outside that said they had a weekend buffet for only P699++. We needed to do something in the Manila area one Sunday so we suggested to the family to meet up for lunch at Kitsho. We called ahead to reserve and we got the seats right in the middle of the buffet setup. Our group was a party of 6 so we were able to take advantage of their “5+1” promo that is running until March 30, 2014.
The buffet spread is small but the quality is really good. You have have your choice of maguro (tuna), shake (salmon), tai (sea bream) and ika (squid) rolled with nori (seaweed) into a black and white pinwheel.
They also have a small selection of sushi, not as beautiful as the ala carte ones but quality is high especially for a buffet.
They also have 3 kinds of rolls, futomaki, california roll and a showy tempura maki.
Here was my first plate filled with sushi and sashimi only.
Irene and I have come to adore the Horenso no Ohitashi (spinach with sesame sauce). We each had a couple of plates of this.
For your dose of greens, they have 3 salads as well as a Mabo Nasu (stewed eggplant) dish that my mom really liked, topping it on white rice.
Kitsho also has a sukiyaki station, where they cook it upon order.
Located right beside the sushi/sashimi station is the tempura and okonomiyaki. The tempura met Lauren’s standard and she finished off at least 6 pieces. I’d skip the okonomiyaki though.
They also have 4 cooked food in chafing dishes the best of which was the grilled salmon belly. The yaki udon was good taste wise but it was a bit cold already.
For more carbs, you can have fried or plain rice.
There’s a few simple desserts, fruits and two small cake options.
Kitsho Japanese Restaurant and Sushi Bar weekend buffet is available during lunch and dinner on both Saturdays and Sundays. The selection is small but the quality is really good. I’d concentrate on the sushi, sashimi, tempura and sukiyaki and your are sure to get more than your money’s worth.
