providing an Izakaya type of ambiance wherein you can buy assorted japanese barbecued goodies.

Nanbantei of Tokyo Currently has two branches in the Capital Region, one in Bonifacio Global City and one here in Makati City in Greenbelt 3. It is an izakaya type of restaurant wherein yakitori style grilled items of assorted japanese grilled goodies, ranging from Tebasaki (chicken wings), Aspara Maki (asparagus wrapped with pork), Pork Garlic Yaki (pork with garlic flavor), Tsukune (chicken meat balls) and Yaki Niku (grilled thin slices of beef) to name a few, can be ordered and you can see them being grilled in the big griller in the center of the restaurant and then served to your table. you can either eat them as bar chow while having assorted beers or japanese hot or cold sake or as a meal by ordering rice (hence the izakaya style ambiance). they also have a few other japanese favorites like ramen, udon, donburi meals.

according to their website:

Japan, a land known for its unique mix of modern culture and tradition, has always been famous for good food and their commitment to quality and freshness. A culinary journey to Japan, for instance, reveals that its food is not only one of the world’s healthiest but also most aesthetically appealing. This applies to a variety of fascinating Japanese cuisine.
Grilled and skewered dishes called yakitori abound in Japan. Yakitori-ya (yakitori stands and restaurants) are dining places frequented by office workers and businessmen before their train ride heading home This is their way of de-stressing from Japan’s highly competitive corporate jungle.

Favorite Dish: a lot as there are many yakitori items, ranging from beef, pork and chicken, to seafood and vegetables. the yakitori sticks have different sets of prices and range from 80 pesos per order of the chicken skin, salmon yakitori at 200 pesos per order, pork yakitori at 150 pesos per order ika (squid) maki at 160 pesos an order and more. a cup of hot or cold sake cost 200 pesos and there are many kinds of sake as well.
