Note: The first branch of this popular international Japanese casual restaurant chain is at the Mall of Asia.
Kudos to the Bistro group (TGI Friday’s, Italianni’s etc.) for bringing Watami to Manila and the Philippines. First impressions: lots of items to choose from in the menu, food is good, prices are affordable and service is quick. Ambiance is modern industrial and I love the couch seating.
I dig the fact that they have a half serving of their in-house Watami Salad at P220 which already looks like a full serving to me. This salad can be a meal in itself because it has everything. You get a healthy dose of greens, shrimps, corn, cherry tomatoes, nori, tuna-mayo dressing and what looks like roasted pork. If you want to meet your day’s vegetable quota, I highly recommend you order this when you’re at Watami
