A big THANK YOU to all of you who have recommended the best places to eat in Little Tokyo! <3 So far, we’ve only been able to try 3: Hana (full meal), Kagura (japanese pancake only), and now Oishinbo.
Ate requested to see a particular art showing featuring Mich Dulce’s work in Chino Roces, Makati, right after her prelims so I thought we might as well have lunch first & explore Little Tokyo to get another restaurant off my very long list before going to the gallery. (Mich Dulce’s Art Show entitled “One Day I’ll Be Everything You Ever Wanted” is up on my next post.)
Only 3 were open for lunch. 2 of which we’ve already tried. Luckily, Oishinbo was the third.
We were VERY happy & satisfied with our orders..

And because I haven’t been able to try the japanese ice cream, DOJO, every time we visited Little tokyo, I made sure that this particular haunt, I would finally get to taste one for dessert!
Dojo Ice Cream, claimed to be the best of its kind & is considered an artisan ice cream, comes in three sizes: 8 oz (P220), 16 oz/1 pint (P450) and 32 oz./1 quart (P850). A bit pricier than its contemporary ice cream brands, Dojo comes is 10 flavors: Green Tea, Black Sesame, Wasabi, Wasabi Light, Miso Sake, Seaweed, Blue Cheese, Buttercream, Lemon, and Strawberry Banana.
You can also buy the japanese ice cream online from their website and they will deliver it right to your doorstep.

Since I was concentrating hard on not skipping DOJO Japanese Ice Cream, I forgot to make a stop at the japanese grocery store which I’ve been told is a must-visit!!! I’m REALLY getting old! @_@ I guess I have to reserve that AGAIN for the next time we visit! :P I wanna try either Riozen or Kagura (and not just for the pancakes). Any opinions on those 2 restos? :)
