Tokyo Tonteki: Back for More Pork Steak at Its Second Branch (Greenbelt 5)

December 13, 2014 Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines

The family loves Tokyo Tonteki.  But, such love cannot overcome the distance from our home to UP Town Center so we're very glad they opened their second branch in Greenbelt 5

I actually find it a bit odd that they had a narrow entrance. 

And, along that narrow entrance is a display of their dishes.

The design is less elegant than their UP Town Center pioneer branch but it's still bright and clean looking.


Spring Roll of Prosciutto, Avocado and Onsen Egg (190 php)
I've shared and raved about the Spring Roll of Prosciutto, Avocado and Onsen Egg on my first review.  Of course, I have to have more of it! 

Set Meals (Unlimited Pork Miso Soup, Japanese Rice and Cabbage)

Tonteki Sets (Premium Pork Loin Sets)
Regular Tonteki Set (375 php)
Starting with their classic item: Regular Tonteki Set served with unlimited pork miso soup, Japanese rice and cabbage.

Japanese Cucumber Pickles
It also comes with a serving of Japanese Cucumber Pickles.

Regular Tonteki Set (375 php)
The Regular Tonteki is glazed with the tonteki sauce.  It's a really flavorful blend that's quite captivating.  But, I still like the Ginger Flavored Pork Steak Set more.

Tonburg Sets (100% Pure Ground Pork)
Tonburg Steak Set with Tonteki Sauce (375 php)
The Tonburg Steak Set with Tonteki Sauce is another all-time favorite for me.  But, if you  have more money to spend, I' suggest going for the heese Tonburg Steak Set.

Chicken Steak Sets
Chicken Steak w/ Teriyaki Sauce (350 php)
I really liked their Chicken Steak w/ Teriyaki Sauce because the taste is just right.  It wasn't short of flavor nor was it too sweet or salty.  It's difficult to decide whether this is better than the Chicken Steak Set with Onion Steak Sauce I've tried before.

Katsu Sets
Salmon Fry 4 pcs. (360 php)
This is the first time I'm trying their Katsu. As you can see, their Salmon Fry is beautifully prepared.  The Katsu breading is so thin and crisp.  The salmon is also fresh and juicy.

Side Dishes
Sundubu Style Tonteki Stew (300 php)
My favorite dish in Tokyo Tonteki is actually not their pork steak but just a side dish.  It's the Sundubu Style Tonteki Stew I just had to order in every visit!  It you like spicy Korean dishes, order this!

Stir-Fried Japanese Mushrooms (250 php)
The Stir-Fried Japanese Mushrooms still has 3 kinds of mushrooms.  But, I noticed that their not as big as I remembered them to be.

Special Fried Rice with Egg (150 php)
The Special Fried Rice with Egg is sinangag escalated ti the highest level.  Everyone was crazy for this!

Chocolate Pudding w/ Whipped Cream (120 php)
It appears that they have totally revamped their dessert menu.  Although I liked the old ones, I'm glad they did because of this Chocolate Pudding w/ Whipped Cream.  It's so good with its semi-powdery but still silky texture, rick dark chocolate taste and addictive vanilla whipped cream.  I won't deny that I didn't want to share this and I didn't!  I swear I'll order this in every visit!

Creme Brulee (120 php)
The Creme Brulee is good but it faded just behind the Chocolate Pudding w/ Whipped Cream's limelight.

Bottomless Iced Tea Lemon (85 php)

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Tokyo Tonteki is now available for those from the South side. I know I'm surely coming back for more of their pork steak and more.  I'd strongly suggest you give it a try too.
