Q. What happens when you combine Pinoy food + Japanese food?
A. Manila Maki
Manila Maki is the newest restaurant nestled in Salcedo Village, Makati. It serves Filipino Japanese fusion cuisine.
Aryanna and I spotted this hole in the wall resto while on our mom and daughter bonding time a week before Holy Week.
The curious cats
Aryanna: Ooh… cute logo! Let’s try it, mom!
Me: Cute lang ng logo try na agad? Over… Ooh… I like the wallpaper! Let’s eat!
My lunch date
Manila Maki’s interior is funky and cozy. I like the use of Japanese newspapers as wallpaper.
What is “JaPinoy” cuisine?
Imagine a crunchy tuna maki with “taba ng talangka” on top or a not-so-classic Philadelphia Roll using kesong puti, bacon bits, and fresh salmon. Their signature “Manila Maki”, which had fresh tuna, nilasing na hipon, and crunchy garlic. That’s “JaPinoy”!
My favorite: Seared Tuna Kinilaw
I give this two legs up! Saraaap!
Must-try: their signature “Manila Maki”
Pinoydon Fried Chicken
Aryanna’s favorite: Pork Katsu with Gravy
Sa dami ng inorder namin, ang lakas ng loob na umorder pa ng dessert!

Aryanna and I have been to Manila Maki four times already in the last few weeks. We recommend to also try the following:
Pinoydon Maki – we love the adobo and cream cheese combo. Eto yung kanin and ulam na bite-size. Portion control ang peg!
Tuna Maki Crunch – shrimp tempura, kani salad and mango rolled panko-crusted sushi rice, topped with spicy tuna salad. This dish is value for your money! Two in one naman ang peg: Tempura roll + Spicy tuna salad
Beef Yakiniku – thin slices of beef marinated in Pinoy spices and Japanese sauce served with crunchy veggies. Yum!
Please support Manila Maki. Aryanna and I want them to open five more branches so everyone can taste their innovative dishes!
