In 2014, Rosanjin Japanese Restaurant opened in SM Mega Fashion hall to offer affordable modern Japanese meals.

The name Rosanjin is inspired by the famous potter, painter and gourmet chef.

Thus, you can tell from its namesake that Rosanjin is particular with its food, interior, service and even the kitchenware they use.

Food

Vegetables
kani salad
Kani Salad (280 php)
Starting with a delicious yet healthy Kani Salad.

tofu salad
Tofu Salad (200 php)
But, if you want to go out of the ordinary, I highly recommend the Tofu SaladThe silken soft tofu bricks, tomatoes, bonito flakes, nori, green onions  with sweet and sour sesame dressing and a sprinkle of lemon may seem unappealing at first, but try it and you'll be as amazed as we were.

Sushi
california roll
California Roll (150 php)
The California Roll is a common favorite but I'd pass up on this and go for the specialties.


Tobanyaki

What really sets Ronsajin a notch higher than the typical Japanese places is their specialty Tobanyaki and Kaminabe.  The Tobanyaki is the modern style of cooking teppanyaki.  It literally means "to roast on a earthen ware".

I like the concept because it's fun and entertaining to watch as you food gets cooked right infront of you.  And the best part is, I'd like to believe that food especially these succulent juicy soft Australian Rib Steak are at optimal as we ate them as soon as they were sizzling and cooked to our preferred wellness.  If you can't time then, don't worry as you have your own personal server to assist you.

Chicken Cheeseyaki (280 php)
I'm usually a beef more than meat person.  But, the Chicken Cheeseyaki can't be pushed aside either.

There's just something about the melted cheese and flavorful sauce that made the Chicken Cheeseyaki everyone's top choice.


salmon butteryaki
Salmon Butteryaki (280 php)
Seafood lovers will also rejoice with the Salmon Butteryaki.  Thinly sliced, this cooks pretty fast so pay attention. 

buri terriyaki
Buri Teriyaki (450 php)
I have a confession to make, I ate most of Buri Teriyaki!  I love Hamachi Sashimi, but this is even better.


jumbo scallop butteryaki
Jumbo Scallop Butteryaki (450 php)
The Jumbo Scallop Butteryaki is a must try!  Imagine huge fresh scallops topped with uni and roe swimming in butter and sizzling before you're eyes...   Yeah!  I'm drooling right now at just the thought of it.

Kaminabe
sukiyaki kaminabe
Sukiyaki Kaminabe Regular (350 php)
Another specialty is their kaminabe which literally translate to paper hot pot.  This is the first time I've tried this unique Japanese style of cooking.  Can you believe that it uses ordinary paper and it doesn't get burned by the flame beneath it?  According to the owner Mr. Ken, the sukiyaki here in the Philippines is usually tweaked to be sweeter and more watery than in Japan.  But, I liked their Sukiyaki Kaminabe has a mild sweetness so you can still appreciate the natural taste of the other ingredients.


seafood kaminabe
Seafood Kaminabe Regular (450 php)
The Seafood Kaminabe has a soy based broth which I liked more than the sweet sukiyaki broth.  See how they don't scrimpt on ingredients?  There's jumbo scallop, large shrimp, thick buri slices and veggies.

shrimp kaminabe
Shrimp Kaminabe Regular (400 php)
If you're a miso broth lover, the Shrimp Kaminabe is for you.


Dessert
green tea pudding
Green Tea Pudding (150 php)
The Green Tea Pudding topped with red beans is a great meal-ender.

Apple and Cheese Gyoza (250 php)
Order the Apple and Cheese Gyoza for sharing. 



Drinks

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
I really enjoyed my very first Kaminabe and Tobanyaki experience at Rosanjin.  I highly recommend it!  I'll be back with the family for sure!
