WAFU: Unlimited Teppanyaki for P1,200.00+

We went to Greenhills to watch John Wick Chapter 2 and plan to have dinner in one of the Japanese restaurant in the area in celebration of Valentine’s season.

And we’re back at Wafu Japanese Restaurant which offers wide varieties of Japanese dishes from Teppanyaki, Sushi, Bowls and Steaks. 

Amazing and elegant interior and I am super WOWed again with it’s beautiful, bright and spacious set-up. I am fascinated too with the majestic and classy furnitures inside the 2-storey restaurant. 

Upon entry we were greeted and assisted by Wafu’s courteous staff until we reached the Teppanyaki area which is located at the second floor of the restaurant. 

The staff handed the menu for their Teppanyaki and checked the provided list what meat we will be getting. The chef pre-heated the pan and he gave us some fire as the signal that he will start to cook the first dish. He started to spread and put the rice in the big pan and break the egg to cook the fried rice. Then followed by salmon, 3 cuts of beef (tenderloin, gyuniku and hanging tender), chicken, oysters, squid, clams and lastly the sprouts. While the chef cooking in front of us, the staff served the shrimp tempura, soup, maki and the sauces for teppanyaki. The chef told us that we need to eat after he cooked each meat/vegetable for better quality… which we did. And lastly the staff served the free scoop of ice cream. I had strawberry flavor for sweet ending. By the way, unlimited iced tea was served.


🍱 Ishikare Nabe Soup (Salmon with Miso) – ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


🍱 Japanese Fried Rice – ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


🍱 Chicken Teppanyaki – ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

🍱 U.S. Beef Hanging Tender – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5

🍱 Shrimp Tempura – ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

🍱 Buta Enoki Maki -‘⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


🍱 Strawberry Ice Cream – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5


🍱 Iced Tea – ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5
All of the dishes cooked were ” Super Sarap”. My favorites were the 3 cuts of beef especially the tenderloin and the oysters – “Swabe and lasa!”

Overall, we had a wonderful time and satisfied our cravings for Japanese Teppanyaki. Total damage per head – Php1,200.00+

Ilustrado Celebrating 30 years with 8-course Degustation

To mark its 30th year anniversary, Ilustrado Restaurant in Intramuros, Manila is offering an 8-course Degustation menu for the whole month of October.

The menu is curated by Chef de Patron Bernice Pimentel, featuring local ingredients and Philippine cuisine on trend. “This years’ theme is from ordinary to extraordinary – ordinary food you would see in a weekly Filipino household menu but in haute fashion,” notes Chef Bernice.

“As the famous adage goes … ang hindi marunong lumingon sa pinanggalingan ay hindi makakarating sa paroroonan.” Philippine cuisine has arrived thanks to our multitude of brilliant chefs and champions bringing forward our culinary heritage and roots.” Pimentel continues.

The Ilustrado Anniversary Degustation starts with Kalabasa Pan de Sal – pillows of Filipino soft roll with shaved squash and served with EVOO, balsamic vinegar and a home- made queso de bola dip. Next comes the amuse bouche of Longga burger – a Boracay staple longganisa patty turned pintxos with kesong puti and tomato jam. The cold starter is Ensaladang Talong – a mélange of grilled eggplant, onion, tomato, salted quail egg in a spicy pinakurat beurre blanc. The hot starter, lumpiang bangus comes next which is flaked tinapa in a baked shell with a sweet, tangy mango compote. The soup is kinamias which is clear sinigang like vegetarian broth. The first entrée is Adobong Pusit – grilled baby squid in balsamic adobo sauce followed by the main course Bulalo – seared bone marrow and beef risotto with twice-cooked angus beef shortplate and corn salsa sopresa. The sweet ending is a delightful saba con hielo which brings together evaporated milk panna cotta, banana cue slices topped off with chewy bobba pearls.

Diners have a choice to order the whole 8-course menu or order select dishes, ala carte. Each dish is priced separately and the whole menu is at PhP 1,400.00 plus 10 per cent service charge.

Like and follow their social media pages at Facebook /ilustradorestaurant and Instagram @ilustradorestaurant as they celebrate thirty years with exciting giveaways, food promotions and discounts year round.
