Before going to Japan for the first time last year, my favorite Japanese food was sashimi. I still like that, but after trying Gindaco’s #takoyaki and making our own #okonomiyaki in Japan, they topped my list, along with Nagasaki’s kakuni manju (steamed pork bun). I haven’t been to Osaka, but that is definitely one of the places I plan to visit in the future because people there are known to be jolly, plus their takoyaki & okonomiyaki are said to be the best. For now, though, ZAB’S food is enough to satisfy my cravings! Tastes like Japan!

Had some Japanese food delivered from a new dining establishment. Ahhhhh this picture doesn’t give ZAB’S okonomiyaki justice! It’s chunky, flavorful, and has BACON! I will eat there next time for better pictures of their food (I also tried their takoyaki, but I was too hungry to take pics 😅)! Tastes like Japan! 😂🇯🇵
You can find them at Calle Lila along Lilac St. They don’t have any minimum requirement for deliveries; just pay the applicable delivery fee. Oh, and they accept BPI transfers, too! 👌🤤

I just recently learned what the stickers at the bottom of Japanese cup noodles are for! 😅🙌 No more using random objects to seal the cup while waiting for the noodles to cook! 😂 I also discovered that Nissin’s Chili Tomato is yummy, too! 😋🍜

A much cheaper alternative to Tokyo Milk Cheese Factory’s salt & Camembert cookies!!!! These crackers are just less than 200 yen. They’re not milky, but super cheesy! The yellow one is cheddar, the blue one is Camembert! So good!!! 🤤😋🧀

I regret not getting more of these salt & Camembert cookies from Tokyo Milk Cheese Factory! Super yummy! My sister said they taste like something premium! Well, she’s not wrong; these are expensive but worth every yen! 😂🤤😋

Another ramen place opened just recently in my neighborhood: Crazy Ramen (Panorama corner Lilac). Apparently, it is also owned by the same people behind Crazy Katsu along Lilac. Not the best ramen I’ve tasted, but it’s good enough. Currently, they have only 4 variants: shoyu (soy sauce), tonkotsu (pork bone), miso, and this one, hiyashi chuka (cold – with some sweet/salty sauce). Itadakimasu!
