LOOKING FOR AUTHENTIC JAPANESE CUISINE IN MAKATI CITY? TRY HATSU HANA TEI

by - 6:41 PM



Hatsu Hana Tei is the in-house restaurant of Herald Suites Hotel Chino Roces Avenue, Makati City.  The vicinity is likewise known for a number of Japanese restaurants, and all claimed to have been prepared by Japanese chefs, learned in the culinary art of Japan.  The hotel is in fact right across the Little Tokyo.


And for a treat on a weekend after a busy work week, we indulged ourselves in a feast for Japanese cuisine.  Fortunately, we were able to find Hatsu Hana Tei of the Herald Suites.

The restaurant has 5 small tatami rooms and 2 large ones and a sushi bar with a seating capacity of 20.  The open dining area has a seating capacity of 60.  And like any other Japanese restaurant, wooden interiors are kept at a minimal.


The Japanese chefs’ are quite innovative and talented that most of the offerings are not offered on nearby restaurants.  From the traditional tempura and sashimi to nabemono and ramen, the restaurant offers a wide selection of choices and the freshest sashimi delicacies imported from Japan.

It was a special dining set-up for the group as no less than Chef Koichi Kondo, executive chef of the hotel, served us his culinary masterpiece.  He shared stories with us as well on how he found home in the Philippines.


 The Mango Gyu Maki is my favorite and a new variety of maki for my taste.
