Authentic Japanese Cuisine at Tachibana, Microtel Wyndham South Forbes

Tachibana Authentic Japanese Restaurant

at Microtel Wyndham, Silang, Cavite

Last Sunday, I went on a random trip to Sta. Rosa, Laguna to meet with my girlfriends. When we go to Nuvali area, there’s one place that we cannot not go: Tachibana Authentic Japanese Restaurant.

Tachibana has been serving its customers an authentic Japanese experience for more than a decade now. They started at the 2nd floor of Makati Palace Hotel in P. Burgos, Makati. Several years later they opened at Ventura Center, Sta.Rosa-Tagaytay Road, Don Jose, Santa Rosa. Then then last year, it opened another branch in Microtel by Wyndham in South Forbes, Silang, Cavite.

How would you know that a Japanese restaurant is serving authentic Japanese food and offering real Japanese experience?

If you see, many Japanese dining there.

That is Tachibana.

When you enter the restaurant, you feel right at home. Its cozy interiors make you marvel at the tiny details that give you a feel of Japanese culture.

I am not a connoisseur for everything Japanese but all I know is that they serve delicious and they don’t scrimp on ingredients.

Karate Kid on KPMG, Ayala Avenue

On my way to the office this morning, a lady handed me this flyer. Karate Kid is now on KPMG building, Ayala Avenue, Makati.

From the flyer, they have affordable bento and other Japanese meals and drinks. Plus they had delivery service!

So, this Thursday, my officemates and I will most likely try the resto out. 😉

We did and when we opened the Tonkatsu Bento, this is what we found:

so unlike from the photo, especially the tonkatsu, in the flyer and the taste is so-so (._.)
