"Our food is contemporary with bold flavors. Cooking style is traditional but flavors are modern"

A new restaurant just opened at Japan Town at the Top of  The Glo  just a month ago  and its a must try!

If you love sushi and sashimi, 102 Izakaya is one of those Japanese restaurants you have got to check out.

Last week, we tasted the following:

Maguro Pizza P265
tuna , cherry tomatoes, olives pita bread

A Japanese version of the original Italian one, this I can enjoy sans any guilt. It was so light and flavorful and looked amazingly colorful it  was a feast for the eyes as well as the palate

Kani Tamago Aburi Sushi P195

Edo san special P450
onago, crabstick, cucumber, ebiko, cream cheese

Its the cream cheese and the Japanese rice used to create this sushi. Its also the combinations of flavors and textures. That P450 price is worth every peso and more

Black Mamba P385
squid ink, black shell  crab tempura , cheese
Another winner in my book. I loved how flavorful the sushi rice saturated with squid ink were.

Surf and Turf Maki P420

Beef Usuyaki P365

Think Rolled Beef stuffed with  shitake and bacon...scrumptious

Suntory Kakubin Highball Ginger Honey Lemon P220
whiskey with ginger, honey & lemon

Japanese Ice Tea P225
midori, gin, white rum, vodka

Overall,  I quite enjoyed their sushis. Even returned earlier during lunch with the handsome hubby and piggery to let them experience 102 Izakaya's food as well.  Be ready to shell out an average of  P500 without alcohol

Do order Chef Edo San's sushi, the Kani Tamago Maki, the Black Mamba and the Ebi Aburi too. 

For those days you want to unwind, the Highball and Japanese tea are a must try.

102 Izakaya is located at Japan Town at The Top of The Glo in Glorietta Makati.
