Asunaro Japanese Restaurant: Our Most Loved Japanese Restaurant (Pan Pacific Hotel Manila)

Malate, Manila, 1004 Metro Manila, Philippines

The family has had thousands of dinner celebrations.  But, except for our own homes, none of them are as special as Asunaro that gets to be our chosen dining venue for more than once.

Whether it's for a casual after-spa dinner, mother's day and birthday, Asunaro has always been a recurring option for the family.  We've been dining here since its former Miyabi days.  Thus, I could safely conclude that its the extended family's most loved Japanese Restaurant.

Like our family, the place has undergone a lot of changes.  But, I think their interior right now is the best.  Hence, only sharing about them just now. (Good excuse for my delinquency right?)

I find it to be very in tuned with nature.


Ala Carte
sake salmon sashimi
Sake (Salmon) (150 php)
harasu sashimi
 Harasu (Fatty Flesh of Salmon Belly) (350 php)
A must order at Asunaro is their fresh salmon sashimi.  Whether its Sake (Salmon) or the Harasu (Fatty Flesh of Salmon Belly), you can always count on its freshness.  

uni sea urchin sashimi
 Uni (Sea Urchin) (250 php)
Another favorite of ours that great for sharing is the Uni (Sea Urchin).

iradori maki
Iradori Maki (380 php)
The Iradori Maki  is a tuna and salmon california maki with  mango and crabsticks.

kani ebi tempura maki
Kani Ebi Tempura Maki (280 php)
The Kani Ebi Tempura Maki is a fun choice because of their great tempura bits.

Special Menu
maguro cube spicy sashimi
♥ Maguro Cube Spicy Sashimi (280 php)
The Maguro Cube Spicy Sashimi is one of the best spicy tuna in the Metro.  Perhaps, I prefer this more than Nihonbashitei's.

chicken teriyaki
 Chicken Teriyaki (260 php)
The Chicken Teriyaki is light-tasting and very tender just the way I like it.

ebi tempura
Ebi Tempura (Prawn Tempura) (430 php)
You can already tell by its visual appeal that the Ebi Tempura (Prawn Tempura)  is top-notch.

Family Menu
family kaki nabe
Family Kaki Nabe (1,850 php)
Out of all I've tried at Asunaro, I believe that the Family Kaki Nabe is quite expensively priced.  Though the oysters were huge, it is not strikingly extraordinary for the price.  

family yakiniku
 Family Yakiniku (1,200 php)
Since the guys in the family are practically carnivores, the Family Yakiniku is a must on our dining table.

Dinner Set Menu

We always opt for the set menu or bento because it is the most bang-for-the-buck.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
