Isaribi Japanese Restaurant Opens Second Branch in Tomas Morato

Since I was born to become a notorious picky eater, I don't like a lot of things, make that a lot of RAW. Tried several times to convert myself into a sushi-lover but to no avail. Anything that's cold and slimy or gelatinous is a NO for me. I don't even like gummy worms!
However, I've found that I love California maki -- no raw fish, just rice and veggies and fruits with seaweed covering the entire thing. It doesn't bother me at all and it's much easier to tolerate than Nigirizushi which is a bundle of Japanese rice topped with a slice of raw fish.
In this City, there are still lots of Japanese restaurants that offer other Japanese menu items that aren't raw.
But if you really love sushi, there's this nice Japanese restaurant in Timog that serves authentic Japanese dishes. When I say authentic, they get their stuff mostly from Japan.
Isaribi Japanese Restaurant in Tomas Morato is is the second outlet of this Izakaya styled Japanese restaurant. Their first one is Makati City. They already have 5 branches in Japan.
When you say Izakaya, it means a type of Japanese gastropub, a casual place usually for after-work drinking.

Isaribi is a light or lamp in Japan that fishermen use in fishing. 

Isaribi Japanese Restaurant Tomas Morato is spacious for an Izakaya restaurant. Enhanced with wood theme brightened with cherry blossoms similar to those in Japan. With a function room that can comfortably accommodate 20 to 30 people.

Isaribi also offers around 100 varieties of Japanese liquor.

Fresh fish like Salmon and Tuna and other seafood are what Isaribi takes pride of their menu that clients will surely enjoy at much affordable prices. You can grill the items on-the-spot, too.
Some of the house specialties are Sushi, Sashimi, Yakiniku, Wagyu Beef that is also imported from Japan, guaranteed tender and the best quality. I got to try a strip of Wagyu and already becomes my second favorite dish. Perfectly grilled, retained the succulence of the meat inside. My first?

This yummy ball-shaped Japanese snack made of a wheat flour-based batter and cooked in a special moulded pan! My favorite Takoyaki has a diced octopus, tempura scraps, pickled ginger, and green onion.You can order this for only 200 pesos.
They let us try ( I didn't ) these fresh dishes from their menu. They served Hotate Ato Sazae or Scallop and Turban Shells. Spicy California Maki, Raw baby squid, Japanese shredded cabbage salad, and the famous "Sashimi Funamori" with 9 assorted Sashimi in a boat with dry ice.







(Unlike me)Take the challenge. Do not be afraid to try anything. Although not proper, you can go slight heavy with the wasabi to lessen the unwanted taste. But do not do it in front of an actual Japanese chef as he may take it as offensive.  You can always light dip everything in soy, with a small amount of wasabi.

Go and visit the newest Isaribi branch in Tomas Morato to feel the authentic style of Japanese.
