Banzai: The Great Authentic Japanese Buffet at the Mall of Asia (MOA) Complex presents an international menu for its Christmas 2014 selection. This is aside from their usual offerings of sushi, sashimi, teppanyaki, tempura, tonkatsu, yakitori, ramen, takoyaki, and many more.
We spotted porchetta or rolled pork belly baked to tenderness, after being rubbed with rosemary, garlic and other seasonings. If lechon can’t be had, this can be a good alternative.
A group of friends can share a platter of Chilled Seafood among themselves. Feast on super-fresh prawns, mussels, and clams to start or finish your hefty Banzai meal.
It’s not Thanksgiving but…. there’s also Turkey! Oven-roasted, bread-stuffed and served with sauce derived from the turkey’s own juice.
