And one such establishment is the Yukinohana Resto and Bar at Ortigas Home Depot. Its funny that we ended up there because we were planning to go to Pivo, the beer place but upon entering we were greeted by blanks stares and utter silence from the staff, I gestured to slowly retreat because it felt as if we were intruding some arcane ritual. Back to the safety of outside we turned east and saw Yukinohana.

And nothing gives a truer air of authenticity than a national of the appropriate culinary ethnicity greeting you when you enter then scuffling to the kitchen hastily putting on a kitchen apron. Boy this is going to be good!

This place is funny because the restroom is very steep climb down to what feels like a gangster den underground. The graffitti on the wall of "bakero! nippon! bansai!" would probably been more authentic if done in Nihongo characters so I would be apt to believe they were done by my rather enthusiastic kababayans who were too swept up by the Yukinohana experience.
I really like this place. Now Japanese is not were I usually eat because of my rather large appetite but this place fit the bill, a long night of drinking and eating the day before led me to want to give my system a rest. Yukinohana Resto and Bar at Ortigas Home Depot is a place I shall be visiting again.
Tip: Check out the Korean Grocery next door and get the two liter bottle of tomato juice.
