Yayoi: Japanese Teishoku Restaurant
Yayoi is now in Manila! Japan’s popular Teishoku (set-menu dining) is the first in the Philippines. If you are craving for authentic Japanese dishes Yayoi is the answer.
Filipino love set meals or what we call value meals. Teishoku meals consists of rice and soup with three dishes ( one main and two sides ). It is considered a complete and well-balanced meal.
They take inspiration from the wisdom of Japanese culinary tradition with its Teishoku-dining-concept — serving home-style meals, consisting of a main dish of meat or fish, miso soup, a steaming bowl of rice, and side dishes of vegetables and tsukemono (Japanese pickles). The founder, Tamijiro Shio, opened the first Yayoi-Ken in 1886, serving superb East-meets-West Teishoku meals and today Yayoi has over 300 outlets located all over Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, the United States, and Australia. And now, Filipinos can have a taste of it, too!
They offer a wide variety of food and beverages.
Namban Teishoku – Fried chicken steak in sweet and sour sauce and topped with our special Yayoi tartar sauce.
Mix Toji Teishoku – Breaded pork loin, fried shrimp and sukiyaki beef simmered in special sauce and egg.
Saba Shio Teishoku – Salt-grilled mackerel
Hitsumabushi – Grilled eel over rice ad served with a side of dashi broth. Nagoya style.
It’s an East-meets-West, traditional-meets-contemporary approach. The interiors are modern with unmistakably Japanese aesthetics.
The ordering system makes use of an iPad, where customers can tap and send their choices and they can also monitor the status of their orders real-time. It is a first in the Philippines.
Fans of Japanese cuisine can expect nothing less than an authentic dining experience that takes you back to Japan, one Teishoku tray at a time. It is located at the 3rd floor, Bridgeway, Building B of SM Megamall. Visit their website at www.yayoi.com.ph and follow them on Facebook – Yayoi Philippines and Instagram – @YayoiPH.
