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

🍱 Beef Tenderloin – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5

🍱 U.S. Gyuniku – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5


🍱 Squid – ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

🍱 Oysters – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5

🍱 Fresh Clams – ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

🍱 Salmon – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5


🍱 Moyashi (Bean Sprouts) – ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


🍱 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+

It’s going to be a savory encounter times three as The Bistro Group spices up Glorietta Food Choices with FARINA FRESH, ROT!SSER!E and JUICY.

Upping the ante of the quick-service concept, Farina Fresh and Rot!sser!e feature recipes specially created by The Bistro Group’s award-winning executive corporate chef, Josh Boutwood. Juicy, on the other hand, is Korea’s number one juice brand and Bistro’s newest franchise.


Make the first stop at the Farina Fresh counter and get your fill of healthy, delicious and market fresh dishes.  

Warm up to the steaming hot Minestrone Soup then choose from Pecorino and Bleu Cheese Walnut Salads.

Where else can you get pastas that are made from scratch, in a food hall? At Farina Fresh, pastas are freshly-made, right before your eyes.  All you have to do is choose your type of pasta (Spaghetti, Conchiglie, or Bucattini) then pair it with your favorite sauce- Shrimp Alfredo, Truffle, Carbonara, Puttanesca, Pesto  and Spicy Diavola.


Move on over and help yourself to Manila’s best fall-off-the-bone roast chicken at the Rot!sser!e. Chicken is roasted to perfection in-store and comes in the Classic Roast and the tasty Lemongrass Ginger flavors. Half and a quarter chicken come with  garlic rice and cream corn.  Other sides are roast and  mashed potato.


Then there’s Juicy, a fresh juice bar concept with over 800 outlets in South Korea alone.  Refreshing and healthy juices are blended from fresh fruits and the array of  flavors is tempting! It has Acai Berry-Banana, Chocolate-Banana, Kiwi, Blueberry, Honeydew, Strawberry-Mango, Orange-Pineapple, Peach, Watermelon-Strawberry, and Peanut-Banana.

Glorietta Food Choices, newly-revamped with a more pleasing ambiance, is a nice place to hang out with friends and family, more so if the food and drinks are as good as Farina Fresh, Rot!sser!e and Juicy.

The Kare-Kare-Kare Platter is a big order of beef ribs, pork knuckles, prawns and vegetables.

TRES coined the term Kare-Kare-Kare because they give you extra sauce to pour, peanuts to top, and the original TRES bagoong as an accompaniment. 

The TRES Crispy Pata is another bestseller. It is soaked in a secret marinade and fried twice for that double delicious crispy crackling goodness. The meat is tender and steeped with flavor. It is served with thinly sliced sweet potato crisps and a sweet and spicy soy sauce and vinegar dip.

Binagoongang Lechon Kawali combines the crispiness of lechon and the spiciness of the Bicol Express sauce. Sizzling Crispy Beef Tadyang is simmered in soy sauce with garlic, onion, laurel leaf and pepper.

If you are looking for hot delicious soup, there is Beef Bulalo, slow cooked beef marrow until its almost fall-off the bone tender and made more flavorful with corn, green beans, cabbage and potatoes.

The Sinigang comes in 4 variants. Sinigang na Salmon sa Miso, Sinigang na Spareribs, Sinigang na Bangus and Sinigang na Hipon.

For vegetable dishes, the Gising-Gising is a crowd favorite with ground pork sautéed with Baguio beans, chili and coconut milk. You decide if you want it real spicy. Pinakbet is more decadent with Bagnet, Ampalaya Ensalada has no bitter taste with crispy dried shrimp and a light dressing. Ensaladang Talong, Laing and Monggo round up the choices.

Nono’s Presents New Menu Come home to new flavors. Come home to Nono’s.

Home. It is the warmth of family and friends. The comfort of familiar surroundings. The things you do that bring joy, the taste of food you’ve come to love. This is what you get at Nono’s—a taste of home. Now, it has more to offer.

Nono’s has launched a new menu for the rest of 2019. With this, Chef Baba Ibazeta Benedicto encourages diners to create and share more memories in any of its branches. “We listen to our customers and we want to evolve with them. When we started it was all about comfort food done right, but with the new menu, we hope to go beyond that and bring loved ones together so they can create fond memories over good food,” she said.

Starting the day deliciously

The all-day breakfast menu is here to ensure that you kick-start the day with a smile.

A helping of the Kesong Puti Pandesal with Spanish Tsokolate recalls warm mem- ories of childhood. Meanwhile, the Avocado & Egg Toast and the Homestyle Waffles with fresh strawberries or blueberries are perfect brunch companions, ideally en- joyed with friends over some coffee or coolers. If you’re the type to hit the ground run- ning early, you will appreciate Raoul’s Breakfast Plate, which offers the classic, com- plete combination of smoked bacon, sunny side up eggs, and French toast—a favorite of Chef Baba’s husband.

Sharing a hearty meal

Whether you’re gathering the family for a big lunch feast or celebrating a relationship milestone over an intimate dinner, discover new favorites at Nono’s.

Start the hearty meal with the Parmesan

Truffle Fries or the Chicken Lettuce Wrap. Then, find new ways to savor familiar flavors, this time with the distinct Nono’s touch. From the Garlic Steak with Mushrooms, the Shrimp & Sole or Mixed Veg- etable in Coconut Cream, the Nono’s Sisig, the Miso-glazed Salmon with Red Rice, the Chicken and Waffles (also available in big plate serving), to the Pan- roasted Sole with White Wine Sauce—take your pick. Whatever the occasion may be, there’s always something to keep you coming back.

Satisfying your cravings

No matter the time of day, you can count on Nono’s to fill your craving for delicious meals that comfort the soul. Help yourself to a serving of the Vegetable Mac ‘n Cheese, the Penne Pasta with Mixed Vegetables, the Shrimp El Diablo, or the BLT Sandwich and settle in.

Bonding with the little ones

Quality time with your little ones becomes more memorable when they can also enjoy their meal. The Grilled Cheese Panini and the Fried Chicken Nibblers with Home- style Waffles or fries will surely lift their spirits before and after playtime.

Keeping the sweet nothings going

Any meal is made better when it ends on a sweet note. The Cookie Ice Cream Sand- wich and Waffle with Ice Cream will please the crowd, whoever it may be.

Indulging in the perfect break

Nono’s has always put quality at the heart of what it does—serving comfort food done right. Now, they’ve dedicated the same level of care and attention to detail to its blends for a memorable coffee experience.

Whether it’s a client meeting or an afternoon break, it’s always a good time to enjoy a cup of Nono’s specialty coffee with a slice of cake. Ask the friendly staff how to pair your Espresso, Americano, Cappuccino, Vienna, Piccolo, Flat White, Con Panna, Gi- braltar, or Salted Caramel Macchiato with the cake slices of the day.

Nono’s new menu explores new flavors of home, making every moment spent with loved ones all more special.

#NonosPH #ComfortFoodDoneRight

Nono’s restaurants are located in UP Town Center, The Podium, Three Central Makati, Festival Mall, Glorietta 2, and Nuvali Sta. Rosa. Visit nonos.ph and @nonos.ph (Instagram and Facebook) for more information.
