There’s a hidden gem along Real Road in Calamba, Laguna.
Ippon Yari boasts of an extensive menu which offers everything Japanese from Soba, Udon, Ramen, Sushi, Sashimi, Gyoza, Dons, Beers and so much more.
We were just in time for their 11am opening. This branch is so spacious.
They also have this kind of seating to enhance your Japanese experience.
This Japanese restaurant is also home to Japanese employees working at a nearby factory. They get their fix here and I think the ambiance and the food make them feel right at home.
They also have Japanese magazines and Manga books to keep you entertained while waiting for your food.
Now, let’s discuss their food. Their price is way affordable than other Japanese restos.
Japanese pancake with shrimp, asked them to separate the sauce – mayo and katsu. This is so good!
Raw set for my husband. Quality of the sashimi is good.
This ramen is a little salty to our taste. But the meat is very very tender.
Get this for 100 pesos only when you order together with a Ramen. Love the gyoza. It’s filled with veggies, pork meat and seafood.
I love their Tempura! From tip to tail, there’s shrimp! Crunchy even if there’s sauce all over it.
Daughter asked for an Udon and she finished the whole bowl. Just like the Ramen, the soup’s a little salty to our taste.
There’s more to try on their menu so will definitely be back.
The service is good and for me, that’s an important factor whether to visit a restaurant again!
Ippon Yari also has branches at Sta Rosa, Laguna and at Malvar, Batangas.
