I have always loved Japanese food....and most of the time I would always frequent places that are close to where I live. I would see the sign MARUCHAN from my balcony but I have never gone to the place. But today--- I decided to go and have lunch with Iggy , Cris and little Una.
Maruchan has 2 floors --- the ground floor are for the non-smokers and the smoking area is on the second floor. I was told by one of the waitresses that Maruchan was a sister restaurant of SERYNA ( another Japanese restaurant that is a few meters away ). I always eat at Seryna whether they are business lunches or just dining out with my friends.... so I started to ask myself... Is Maruchan as good as Seryna?
As we entered the door--- I noticed that it was already filled with diners... Most of the tables downstairs were already taken except for the seats by the sushi bar. I recognized one of the waitresses from another neighboring japanese restaurant and she ushered us to a table near the counter.
After browsing over their menu.... we were ready to order....
Iggy had Makinochi Bento Box 450 PHP
Cris ordered Beef Teppanyaki Teishoku 280 PHP
and I ordered my usual CHIRASHI SUSHI KAISEN 350 PHP... if you want a slice of Hamachi in your chirashi you will have to add another 100 PHP. I liked my chirashi sushi although the serving at Maruchan was smaller than that of Seryna... but they had more UNI ( sea urchin ) in their bento box than in Seryna.
Overall---- The food of Maruchan was good... although the portions of Maruchan is smaller than Seryna. If you are looking for a good japanese restaurant in Makati where all the locals go to .... try out Maruchan.
